A former Yankee prospect from Long Island is under arrest for allegedly making a terroristic threat at Kennedy Airport.  Freeport Police Chief Miguel Bermúdez says the threat was posted on social media. The New York Post reports Leonel Vinas, who signed a minor league contract with the Yankees seven years ago, posted to Instagram saying "I am going to the Dominican Republic. The first cop that stops me is either getting shot or hijacked."  Vinas was reportedly arraigned and released after posting $10,000 bail.
