New York Yankees: Bird's Wings Get Clipped Again

Greg Bird: Headed to see specialist

New York Yankees Gary Sanchez

Bird is expected to rehab for 6-8 weeks before returning to game action.

Enter 2017, and it seemed that Bird would finally get his chance as the Yankee 1st baseman of the future - but not so fast.

For that answer, we will look to the truthers of Brian Cashman. New York Yankees fans are understandably concerned that this may be proven true. Everyone in the Bronx will breathlessly await the results, hoping this Bird can let it fly again. "Then he should be good to go".

Tyler Austin and newly signed Neil Walker are the leading candidates to replace Bird at first base.

"You'll see different combinations [like] Walker at first, Wade at second; Austin at first, Walker at second", Boone said.

Austin is looking forward to the opportunity.

Bird hit.190 overall previous year but had eight homers and 25 RBI in 29 games after returning from the disabled list in late August. "I just missed it", Sabathia said.

The 25-year-old has a powerful bat but has had trouble staying healthy.

Bird, who has struggled with injuries for much of his career, was scratched from the lineup in Saturday's split-squad game against the Blue Jays due to "a sore right foot" and saw a specialist later that day.

When the foot did not improve, O'Malley operated July 18 to remove a bone in the ankle. Gregorius hit the ball well in the role, tallying 25 homers last season, a Yankee Shortstop record. 3B Brandon Drury, hit on the left elbow by pitch Friday, is set to play in Monday night's spring-training finale at Atlanta.

In retrospect, Boone said, the player may have been favoring the ankle, though the team did not realize there was a problem until the closing days of spring training.

"I guess I am", he said with a smile.
