It's just five games into the regular season, but Yankees rookie manager Aaron Boone has a dilemma on his hands. His bullpen is underperforming, and he's having trouble managing it.

The Yankees bullpen entered the season believed to be among the best in the game, however, the crew has performed inadequately to say the least. Yankees relievers have allowed 14 runs in 17 1/3 innings (7.27 ERA), which ranks 27th in the league. They lost back-to-back games in their first series of the season at the hands of reliever implosions, and only Didi Gregorius saved them from another in Tuesday's home opener...

The backend of the Yankees bullpen is going to get a majority of the press when bullpens are compared team by team. As dominant as those relievers might be, the Yankees middle relievers are just as critical to the team's ability to reach the postseason in 2018.

The MLB calendar hits one of its final milestones today as club rosters can be expanded from 25 to 40 players. The Yankees have a slew of players that will eventually come to the Bronx, but expect the shuttle to make multiple trips. We'll review some of the players who might have an impact down the stretch (in alphabetical order).

Note: All prospect rankings are via MLB Pipeline.

Miguel Andujar (Yankees' No. 6 prospect)

Andujar has shredded Triple-A pitching this season (.333 batting average, .379 on-base percentage and .531 slugging percentage with nine home runs and 30 RBIs in 235 plate appearances), but he's been bypassed as a call-up mainly because he is considered a work in progress at third base (.939 fielding percentage). Once the Yankees received Todd Frazier in the White Sox trade, Andujar feel further back on the depth chart. The thing is, Andujar's bat is legit and the Yankees could use some right-handed pop. It will be interesting to see when Andujar is moved up, but don't expect him to be replacing anyone just because he can be carried with the big club.
