With Matt Carpenter going on the 10-day injured list, the New York Yankees recalled Miguel Andújar from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.
This is Andújar’s fourth stint with the Major League club this season. In 14 games with the Yankees, Andújar has two doubles and four RBIs, while at Triple-A, the 27-year-old has batted .293/.337/.498 with 12 home runs and 46 RBIs.
Carpenter exited Monday’s game against the Seattle Mariners with a left foot fracture after fouling a pitch off himself in the first inning. He was in a boot and on crutches in the clubhouse after the game and said he would likely fly to New York to see a specialist.
Andújar will likely stay on the roster until Giancarlo Stanton returns from the injured list.
