Spring Training is right around the corner and members of the New York Yankees, especially Greg Bird, are preparing for the long season ahead.

The New York Yankees are entering the 2018 season with arguably the best bullpen in baseball and an above average starting rotation that could still use some help.

While negotiating with free agents is a bit of a standstill, the Yankees seem to be looking in-house for potential rotation reinforcements. Specifically, they’re looking at one of their top arms from the bullpen, Chad Green.

Green had a stellar 2017, posting a 5-0 record with a 1.83 ERA and 103 strikeouts in 69 innings pitched.

Bird looks to the future:

It’s no secret that Yankees first baseman Greg Bird has fought the injury bug on multiple occasions in his young career. But after missing nearly all of 2017, Bird came up big when his team needed him. But that’s not enough for the 25-year-old.

Bird knows this is his time to prove himself on a full-time basis and has made it his objective to stay on the field.

Didi Gregorius: The Perfect Valentine

When Didi Gregorius came over to the Yankees after the 2014 season, he had huge shoes to fill. He was taking over for a beloved shortstop and team captain Derek Jeter and fans weren’t happy.

The Yankee faithful was skeptical that Gregorius would be a worthy suitor to Jeter but after a short while, he became a fan favorite. From his post emojis to his infectious smile, Didi found a spot in every Yankee fan’s heart, including a little girl he met at a Brandon Steiner meet and greet.
