Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar has hired Octagon to serve as his representation, per Robert Murray of The Athletic (via Twitter). You can find all updated agency relationships in MLBTR’s Agency Database.
Andujar, who’ll soon turn 24, turned in an exciting 2018 season in which he narrowly missed a Rookie of the Year nod. Despite 27 home runs and a .297/.328/.527 batting line over 606 plate appearances, Andujar placed second in the American League voting to the unique Shohei Ohtani.
With just over a year of MLB service on his ledger, Andujar won’t be eligible for arbitration until at least 2021 — with three more years to go from that point before potential free agency. Unless surprise extension talks come up, there won’t be much in the way of near-term contract negotiations. But he’ll surely ask his new reps to explore marketing opportunities befitting a young slugger who plays on the game’s biggest stage.
