Yankees News: Miguel Andujar Designated for Assignment; Zack Britton Activated

Third baseman Miguel Andujar's time with the New York Yankees could be coming to an end.

The team announced prior to Thursday's game vs. the Boston Red Sox that Andujar has been designated for assignment. Reliever Zack Britton has been activated off the injured list after undergoing Tommy John surgery in September 2021.

Getting Britton back could have a huge impact on the postseason if he returns close to peak form. The two-time All-Star had a 5.89 ERA and 1.69 WHIP in 22 appearances last season before being shut down with an elbow injury.

In eight rehab appearances in the minors, Britton allowed just one earned run with seven strikeouts in 6.
