Scran­ton. The or­ga­ni­za­tion’s No. 6-ranked prospect ac­cord­ing to mlb.com, An­du­jar bat­ted .315 with 16 homers and 82 RBI be­tween the AP two lev­els this sea­son.

On June 28, An­du­jar ap­peared in one game for the Yanks and went 3-for-4 with a walk and four RBI in his ma­jor-league de­but — a 12-3 road win over the White Sox — be­fore he was sent back to the mi­nors.

“Ob­vi­ously, I think it’s im­por­tant that we get our eyes on him and get a chance to work with him. But I have a lot of con­fi­dence in the young man,” Gi­rardi said, adding there was some temp­ta­tion to keep up ear­lier this sea­son. “The thing is we want him fin­ished off. We don’t want him to be nec­es­sar­ily a guy who plays two or three times a week. We wanted him to fin­ish his de­vel­op­ment off and be an ev­ery­day player.”
