The new york yankees lately have built up a reputation of developing powerful hitters through their farm system. Their No. 4 prospect, Miguel Andujar, appears to be keeping the trend alive this Spring Training. On Thursday, the Yankees' young 22-year-old third baseman mashed two bombs because of his vicious swing. As a result, Miguel Andujar was trending on Twitter after the video of his second dinger hit the internet. Now, in only fourteen preseason at-bats, Andujar has collected six hits with four of those being home runs. His scorching hot swing may force him onto the Yankees' major league roster on Opening Day.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman impressed by Andujar

It wasn't Andujar's two home runs on two pitches on Thursday that caught Brian Cashman's attention. The Yankees general manager has been a fan of the Dominican ballplayer's bat for years. According to the New York Post, Cashman had great things to say about the prospect on Tuesday.

As reported by George A. King III, Cashman said: “He knows he is competing for something.” The Yankees GM then added “We have high hopes for him. He has already opened eyes, not with this camp, but … what he has done in his career.

Competition is always good … because it brings out the best in people. When it doesn’t, it’s a learning experience for those that don’t adjust well to that competition and a chance to regroup and think through what went down and how it went down so the next opportunity they have can change the narrative.”

Although Andujar has started Spring Training on fire, one can assume he has not won the Yankees' starting third baseman job, yet.

Entering the preseason, Andujar was invited to compete against Brandon Drury and Ronald Torreyes for the job. One can assume Andujar's walk-off home run in the video below from Monday, and his two-home run day on Thursday is making matters more difficult for management to make a decision.

Should Andujar start on Opening Day?

Scouts have unanimously agreed Andujar has a major league-ready bat, but his fielding is questionable. While he also does have an excellent arm for a third baseman, he needs to work on his footwork. Similar to the young All-Star Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez, Andujar's bat could be good enough to keep him in the majors.

After a week of Spring Training play, it appears that Andujar is considered valuable by Yankees manager Aaron Boone.

The skipper batted his prospect in the clean-up spot as the designated hitter on Thursday. But of course, most of the Yankees' starting sluggers were not in the lineup. Still, the baby bomber made the most of his opportunity.

According to Newsday, Cashman has "strongly indicated" that Brandy Drury will be the starting third baseman for the Yankees on Opening Day. However, fans are starting to jump on the Andujar bandwagon. If Drury does not start at third, he could start at second base, but Yankees pro scouts believe Drury is best at the hot corner.

Regardless, Drury is a versatile player who played in the infield and outfield for the Arizona Diamondbacks last year. To increase Andujar's value, Boone mentioned in a press conference earlier this week that Andujar will also be taking some reps as a first baseman.

If Andujar continues to be the talk of baseball as he has been lately, the Yankees will likely start him. Sadly, a good player will have to start the season in the minors if that's the case. As far as where the rookie would play, he will have to man the hot corner. The recovering Aaron Judge and All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton will rotate between right field and designated hitter. The duo who aims to be Maris & Mantle 2.0 will obviously take priority.
