Ahead of an MLB roster crunch from 28 players to 26, the Yankees optioned INF/OF Miguel Andujar and RHP Clarke Schmidt to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, it was announced Sunday.

Andujar, whom New York called up last Tuesday while CF Aaron Hicks started paternity leave, posted a 2-for-4 afternoon at the plate in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Kansas City Royals -- the Yankees' ninth straight victory.

Batting seventh and playing left field, Andujar recorded two singles -- a fifth inning grounder up the middle and an eighth inning liner through the hole.

Schmidt, meanwhile, got the win after a sixth inning of relief that followed starting RHP Luis Severino.

Throwing eight strikes on 16 pitches, Schmidt worked ahead before allowing a two-out single to Edward Olivares, but got out of the frame thanks to a caught-stealing snipe by Kyle Higashioka and Isiah Kiner-Falefa.

Schmidt, who started out by getting a Kyle Isbel lineout and Michael A. Taylor strikeout, has yielded two runs (one earned) on four hits (one homer) while fanning eight and walking four in 8.1 innings pitched through four relief appearances this season.
