Miguel Andujar was the subject of a segment on Fantasy Sports Radio where manager Aaron Boone said, "[Andujar] will start playing catch on Wednesday." The Yankee manager continued by alluding 'Wednesday will help determine if Andujar will be able to play through the tear or have surgery.' Surgery would almost guarantee that Andujar would miss the rest of the season.

Notes 
 We've seen enough of Conforto by now to know that the hype was overblown. Sure, he has had some extremely promising stretches, but over a full year of health in 2018, he wasn't as good as Randal Grichuk who is going over 100 picks later because of the difference in name value.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Andujar flew under the radar until his major breakout last season. We've seen players like that face major challenges in their sophomore campaign so beware of the risk associated with picking him, but as we've seen, the upside is tantalizing and may prove well worth a mid-round pick.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 With 55 home runs over the last two seasons and now entering his age-26 season, Conforto has the makings of a consistent 30-HR guy, but he is unlikely to hit much higher than .250 and doesn't provide many stolen bases. Those limitations cap his upside, at least until he's able to make more consistent contact.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Andujar's rookie season went as well as even the most optimistic Yankees fan could have hoped. His .297/83/27/92/2 line was good enough to make him the seventh-most valuable third baseman in standard 5x5 leagues. The 27 home runs feels like a high water mark, at least for this stage of his career, and the batting average in particular is probably due for a bit of a correction, although he can still be above average there thanks to some pretty good contact skills. Fantasy owners should expect last season's production as a best case scenario for Andujar, and be satisfied if he approaches a .280 average and 25 HRs, as most of the projection systems expect.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Although he returned sooner than expected from shoulder surgery, perhaps Conforto needed more recovery time. He entered the All-Star break batting .216 with a .366 slugging percentage. On the strength of nine September homers, he closed the second half by hitting .273 with a .539 slugging clip. He proved capable of handling fellow lefties (.345 wOBA) and finished a seemingly lost year with 28 long balls. Now healthy and ready for Opening Day, Conforto is a strong bet for 30 homers with a higher batting average if he regains past hard-hit standards prior to injuring his shoulder. This could be the last chance to snag him at a discount.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Right out of the gate, Andujar provided a rare blend of elite contact (.297 BA) and power (27 HRs) for the Yankees. A 4.1% walk rate is far from ideal, and atrocious defense at third base limits his real-life value. Neither flaw hurt his five-by-five worth last season, but beware paying the Yankee Tax on a youngster who may have peaked early. Statcast's .319 xwOBA hints at some potential sophomore regression.
