Miguel And˙jar 2018 American League Outstanding Rookie
Hear from Miguel Andújar on being voted the 2018 American League Outstanding Rookie:
Andújar, from San Cristóbal in the Dominican Republic, took over at third base early in the season for the Yankees and never looked back, becoming a productive force in the middle of an already-powerful lineup. The solidly built 23-year-old slashed .297/.328/.527 with 27 home runs and 92 RBIs while hitting 47 doubles to break Joe DiMaggio’s 1936 Yankees rookie record (44). Shohei Ohtani, who excelled on the mound and as a hitter, and Andújar’s teammate, Gleyber Torres, placed second and third.
