Are we sure that Brandon Drury is going to be New York's everyday third baseman?
The Yankees acquired the high-upside infielder so they didn't have two rookies, Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar, on their Opening Day infield. Andujar seemed to be the odd man out, but he's making a strong case in recent days.
Andujar was the hero Monday night with his walk-off bomb, and he backed that up on Tuesday with another long homer.
In the top of the sixth inning, Andujar belted a solo homer off Justin Shafer to left field to tie the game at three, and according to those who saw it firsthand, it blasted into the trees.
Andujar, who hit a walk-off HR last night (and doubled too), just hit one into the trees outside the stadium in left for a solo homer to tie it at 3 in the sixth— Erik Boland (@eboland11) February 27, 2018
The 22-year-old often goes unnoticed compared to the other talented Yankee prospects, but last season in 125 games between Double-A and Triple-A, he slashed .315/.352/.498 with 54 extra-base hits (16 home runs) and 82 RBI.
Looks like we have ourselves a position battle at third base.
