The New York Yankees recalled infielder/outfielder Miguel Andujar from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

The 2018 American League Rookie of the Year runner-up batted .462 with three homers and five RBIs in the first three games of the minor-league season.

Andujar, 26, is a career .283 hitter with 28 homers and 102 RBIs in 187 games with the Yankees from 2017-20, with most of that production happening in 2018 (27 homers and 92 RBIs).

He played in only 12 games in 2019 due to a shoulder injury and spent most of last season at the team’s alternate training site.

The Yankees cleared room on the roster by optioning right-handed reliever Albert Abreu to their Triple-A affiliate following Thursday’s 7-4 loss to the Houston Astros.
