Miguel Andujar wins MLBPA’s AL Outstanding Rookie Award

It is no secret that many fans believe Miguel Andujar was robbed of the Rookie of the Year award this year, and it appears that other MLB players and coaches share the same opinion.

The MLB Players Association, made up of current and former players, managers, coaches and trainers, voted on their own version of end of the year awards and accolades. Among these awards that include Outstanding Player and Comeback Player, Andujar was voted AL Outstanding Rookie.

Andujar provided the Yankees with offensive consistency all year, proving that the bright lights of New York didn’t bother the 23-year old slugger. At Yankee Stadium in 2018, Andujar hit .312 with 16 homers and 53 RBIs. The Dominican native also won two Rookie of the Month awards in June and August.
