Miguel Andujar’s season is over.
The Yankees on Wednesday announced the star third baseman will undergo surgery to repair a right-shoulder labrum tear on Monday.
On Tuesday, Aaron Boone said Andujar would decide whether to undergo surgery or attempt another rehabilitation process within 24 hours.
Yet, two hours before the Yankees’ 5-3 win, the manager said he hadn’t heard from Andujar or the medical staff. That changed midway through the nightcap.
Andujar, 24, suffered the injury on March 31 diving back into third base against the Orioles at Yankee Stadium. Surgery was an option then but a rehab program was put in place.
Andujar played in one extended spring training game on April 26 and went 2-for-3 with a homer and an RBI. Andujar participated in three games for Single-A Tampa and went 3-for-10 (.300) with a homer and four RBIs.
