After telling reporters on Sunday that Miguel Andújar would see a hand specialist, Yankees manager Aaron Boone didn’t have an update on a timetable for the 26-year-old, but did provide a bit of clarity on the injury itself.
“Andújar is dealing with a muscle strain in his hand that they are going to continue to treat,” Boone said. “He’s got a little bit of a nerve issue there that they’re going to monitor and follow and try to get their arms around, too. But mostly just dealing with a muscle strain that they’re treating in the hand.”
Andújar hasn’t played since March 10, when he started in left field and went 0-for-3 before exiting in the eighth inning. He has two hits in 15 spring training at bats.
