The New York Yankees’ roster moves continue as first baseman Greg Bird has been reinstated from the 60-day disabled list.
Greg Bird, who was sidelined with a torn right labrum during the 2016 season, has been reinstated from the 60-day DL by the New York Yankees.
In his first cup of coffee in the Bronx, Bird crushed 11 home runs in 46 games and slashed .261/.343/.529 with an OPS of .871. Adjusted on a 162-game scale, he would have hit 38 homers and driven in 109 runs.
He has been recovering from injury since the season began, and now is set to begin work in the Arizona Fall League, is set to begin Tuesday afternoon.
The Yankees unmistakably have high hopes for Bird, who could fuse with Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge to make one nasty trio in the middle of the order.
