The third baseman, who's been sidelined since the end of March with a labrum tear in his right shoulder, added that his throws across the infield have felt "normal" during his rehab stint that began last week.
However, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he expects to use Andujar as a designated hitter in the short term, which would likely keep Giovanny Urshela at the hot corner.
The 24-year-old Andujar finished as the runner-up for American League Rookie of the Year last season. In 157 major-league games, he's slashed .298/.330/.524 with 27 home runs and three stolen bases.
Andujar landed on the IL after three games this season. It was originally thought he could require surgery on his shoulder, which he's avoided for the time being.
