Pirates and Miguel Andujar Avoid Arbitration

According to Robert Murray, the Pittsburgh Pirates and IF/OF Miguel Andujar have avoided arbitration by settling at $1.525 M.

The Pirates picked up Andujar off of waivers from the New York Yankees in late September. It was just enough time for him to get into nine games in which he hit .250/.275/.389 in 40 plate appearances. He only played left field with the Pirates, but he has plenty of experience at third base and some at first base. The 27-year-old has a career .272/.302/.447 slash line in 268 games.

Expect more announcements soon as tonight at 8 PM was the non-tender deadline.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.

Andujar could prove to be a great pickup, if he fills a Pirate need. From what I’ve seen he’s not a particularly good outfielder and the Pirates do not need a 3rd baseman or middle infielder, their ‘lousy’ with players and viable prospects at those positions. He’s a righthanded hitter with reasonable power that’s played some 1B. Duh! The Pirates should have him move into Kevin Young’s home to learn the position and he should be chained to 1B from the first day of spring training until he masters it, or move on.


I could not agree with you more. I’m thinking that he and Choi can be a fairly productive platoon at first.

buy low

sell high


You heard it first here…his numbers will be better than Vogelbach’s were, AND he will not get flipped.
