Yanks ppd. again; p/u a player; and the minor league report.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Rain, Rain,, go away. For the second straight night, the Yanks were ppd. This game will be made up as the first game of a separate admission/day-night DH on August 12.

Meanwhile, the Yanks made a move, picking up 1b/dh Kendrys Morales from the A’s in exchange for cash or a player to be named later. In order to open a spot on the 40-man roster, New York transferred righty Jonathan Loaisiga from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list. Meaning we would not see him again until probably late July.

I am not sold on this move. Morales, 35, hit just .204-1-7 in 34 games for the A’s this year. OPS+ 61. A switch-hitter, he has hit .267 with 212 HR, OPS+ 112 in his MLB career, but I have to wonder how much is left in the tank. Last year he hit .249-21-57 for Toronto in 130 games, OPS+ 113.

From MLBTR.com:

A followup MRI on the ailing right shoulder of Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar revealed little to no changes in his shoulder from the April MRI that initially revealed a small labrum tear, manager Aaron Boone told reporters Tuesday afternoon (Twitter links via James Wagner of the New York Times and Bryan Hoch of MLB.com). Andujar, according to Boone, has been encouraged to discuss the situation with his family and will spend the next day or so mulling his options. Season-ending surgery is still on the table, it seems.

The update from Boone comes just a day after Andujar was placed back on the 10-day injured list following a brief return to the active roster. Andujar missed the entire month of April and a few games early in May before returning on May 4 to go 3-for-34 (all singles) with one walk and nine strikeouts. While both Andujar and the team had hoped that the small nature of the tear would allow him to play through the injury, that poor showing has cast further doubt on his ability to do so.
