Miguel Andujar finished second in American League Rookie of the Year voting last season, but his impressive debut campaign for the New York Yankees could be his last with the club.

The Yankees are open to trading the third baseman, rival executives told Ken Rosenthal and Robert Murray of The Athletic.

It was reported Monday that the Yankees may be involved in a potential blockbuster deal that would see New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard go across town to join the Bronx Bombers and Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto go to the Mets. Andujar could serve as the established, young major-leaguer Miami wants in return, Rosenthal adds.

The 23-year-old Andujar appeared in 149 games during his rookie campaign with New York and hit .297/.328/.527 with 27 home runs and 92 RBIs.

While his bat played well in the big leagues, the youngster struggled defensively.

If Andujar were traded, the Yankees could then pursue free agent Manny Machado to play third base and slide Gleyber Torres to shortstop until Didi Gregorius returns from injury, Rosenthal explained.
