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.
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.
