MLB trade rumors: Miguel Andujar de los Yankees intrigues the AL West club


The Yankees are deep at third base this offseason. According to reports, they have an interested party if they want to take care of something.

T.R. from Sullivan reported Sunday that the Rangers are "intrigued,quot; for possibly trading for Miguel Andujar, who missed most of last season with a shoulder injury that required surgery. Sullivan added that the Yankees "would expect a lot in an exchange," but offered no details. He speculated that a relief pitcher could be part of the comeback.

Andujar, 24, was established as an offensive threat in 2018 with 27 homers and 130 wRC + in 149 games. His defense is his main responsibility: he recorded less-25 defensive races saved in the & # 39; 18.

He was limited to 12 games in 2019 with the injury. Andújar's absence cleared the way for Gio Urshela, a far superior gardener, to have an outstanding season on the plate (21 homers, 132 wRC +) in his 27-year season.

Texas is not limited to the commercial market, as it tries to meet a need in the corner. Sullivan said the Rangers are also interested in signing free agents Anthony Rendon and Josh Donaldson, but Rendon could be too expensive and an Andujar exchange would allow them to use some of that money to address other needs on the list.
