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.
