Yankees adding another Baby Bomber in Miguel Andujar

The Baby Bombers are arriving in bunches.

The Yankees are calling up third-base prospect Miguel Andujar, according to multiple reports, to join the skidding team Wednesday night in Chicago, joining an infusion of young talent onto the big league roster. Andujar confirmed his promotion in a tweet Wednesday morning.

It was unclear what the corresponding move would be, though designated hitter Matt Holliday has been sidelined the past several games due to an illness seemingly stemming from an allergic reaction.

Andujar, 22, a native of the Dominican Republic, already is on the 40-man roster. He just had been promoted to Triple-A last week. In a combined 74 games this season at Double-A and Triple-A, the power prospect has a slash line of .312/.346/.491 with eight home runs and 54 RBIs.

Tyler Austin and Tyler Wade have been called up in recent days to fill in at first base and second base, respectively, entering a Yankees lineup that features young studs Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez as the No. 3 and No. 4 hitters.

The Yankees have lost 11 of their past 14 games.
