It's weird that the Yankees are bragging about players that won't even be in the majors for a couple of seasons instead of all the championships they have.
The Yankees have one of the best farm systems in all of baseball and one prospect is finally getting some of the attention.

Miguel Andujar is a 21-year-old third baseman for the Yankees and was ranked as the seventh best third base prospect in the minors. In 2016, Andujar started at High-A ball and then was called up to Double-A, where he will begin the 2017 season.
Andujar has raw power, as he is finally starting to tap into that power with double-digit home runs the last two seasons. Defensively, Andujar has the hands and range that suit him well for third base, but his best quality is his rocket of an arm.
Jim Callis of MLB.com compared Andujar's arm talent to the likes of Aroldis Chapman, as he makes it look effortless when he wings it across the diamond. With rumors of Chase Headley getting traded sometime this year, it's definitely a possibility that we will see the Yankees' top third base prospect in the majors as early as 2017.
