Yankees: Gio Urshela should remain the favorite at third base

Miguel Andujar means there is competition for the New York Yankees third base job, but it is really Gio Urshela’s role to lose.

Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar burst onto the baseball scene in 2018, as the Dominican Republic native came ever-so-close to taking home the American League Rookie of the Year trophy, ultimately losing to pitching and hitting phenom Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels.

Batting .297, with 27 home runs, 92 RBIs, and 47 doubles, the then 23-year old seemed to be a staple in the Yankees lineup for years to come, as it seemed to be the first true answer at third base since Alex Rodriguez.
