Miguel Andujar is turning heads early on in Yankees Spring Training camp after a double and a walk-off home run on Monday night, followed up by a home run on Tuesday.

Andujar is playing for a starting job at third base with the newly acquired Brandon Drury and so far, he is making the conversation much tougher.

The kid can absolutely swing it, and he has showed so far that he is ready to hit at the major league level. I mean, look at the swing he had on the walk-off home run from Monday:

Andujar has been able to hit at every level throughout his professional career, and most scouts see his bat as major league ready, his glove has been the question. Brian Cashman brought over utility man Brandon Drury to buy time for the 22-year old to develop, but it seems like his bat might give him the opportunity that he wants.

I’ve come around to the fact of giving Andujar the nod on Opening Day rather than sending him down to polish up his defensive work. His offensive ability fits in perfectly to a star studded lineup that is in New York, and Aaron Boone should give him a chance to play every day.
