23-Year-Old Third Baseman3B
New York Yankees
2018 Fantasy Outlook
An athletic 22-year-old with electric bat speed, Andujar had his best professional season while splitting time between Double-A and Triple-A and it somehow flew under the radar. He has been understandably overshadowed by Gary Sanchez, Aaron Judge, Clint Frazier and Gleyber Torres in the Yankees' youth movement, but now that Andujar appears ready for primetime, everyone should be taking notice. He was the youngest player to rank in the top 10 in the International League in wRC+ (139) and the only 22-year-old to rank in the top 15 with a 13.2 percent strikeout rate. His hit tool is currently ahead of his power, but he should eventually be a threat to hit 25-plus homers annually. He has the arm for third base, but his bat could profile anywhere. With Starlin Castro and Chase Headley getting dealt this offseason, top prospect Gleyber Torres now looks like the long-term answer at second base, which leaves third base open for Andujar. The Yankees may look to add a cheap placeholder, but it should be Andujar's job sooner than later. Read Past Outlooks

Andujar went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo homer in Wednesday's win over the Red Sox.
ANALYSIS
Andujar put the Yankees up 1-0 with his solo shot off David Price in the second inning and the team never looked back, going on to win 10-1. He doubled in his next at-bat, marking his 41st two-bagger on the season. The 23-year-old Andujar continues to impress during his rookie campaign, slashing .298/.331/.524 with 25 homers and 84 RBI through 139 games.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Andujar showed some emerging power in 2016, recording career highs in home runs and RBI in 130 games between High-A and Double-A. Unfortunately, just two of his home runs came in the final 72 games of the year at Double-A, and Andujar batted just .266 over that span. He puts bat to ball with great consistency but will need to add more power to profile well as a regular corner infielder at the major league level. That said, Chase Headley has struggled in recent seasons, and for all the improvement in the Yankees' farm system, the Bronx Bombers do not seem to have many other options standing in Andujar's way at the hot corner in the immediate future. As a result, he could end up getting a look at third base before the end of the 2017 season. Andujar figures to begin the year back at Double-A.
