Miguel Andujar activated off injured list, will make A’s debut


OAKLAND — At long last, Miguel Andujar will have an opportunity to don the green and gold in a major-league game.

The A’s announced prior to Friday’s game against the Astros that they reinstated Andujar from the 10-day injured list. Infielder Brett Harris was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move.

“It’s super exciting to be back here with the team,” said Andujar, who will bat cleanup. “I’ve waited for this moment, and thank god I’m here now.”

Andujar, who signed a one-year, $1.7 million deal after being claimed off waivers in November, quickly became the story of spring training, hitting .357 with five home runs and a 1.110 OPS in 14 games. That momentum was halted when Andujar underwent surgery to repair a torn right meniscus just before Opening Day.

“It was a little hard, but at the end of the day, I control what I can control,” Andujar said.

After going under the knife in late March, Andujar began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas in mid-May. In five games, Andujar went 7-for-18 with four doubles and six RBIs, recording more multi-hit games (3) than strikeouts (2).
