NEW YORK (AP) -- Yankees third baseman Miguel Andújar will have season-ending surgery to repair a small labrum tear in his right shoulder.

New York announced the decision Wednesday night during the second game of a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles.

Andújar, last year's AL Rookie of the Year runner-up, initially was sidelined by the injury from April 1 to May 3 and struggled mightily in his return.

After going 6-for-47 with no extra-base hits, he went back on the injured list Monday. Manager Aaron Boone had said Andújar was discussing a possible operation with the team and his family.

Yankees head team physician Christopher Ahmad will perform the surgery Monday at NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital.

The 24-year-old Andujar was a major factor in the Yankees' run to a playoff spot last season, hitting .297 with 27 home runs and 92 RBIs.

Minus Andujar this season, the Yankees have relied on Gio Urshela at third base.
