Yankees' Greg Bird To Miss 6-8 Weeks

Greg Bird: Headed to see specialist

But now fans are back to reenacting the Abbott and Costello routine.

Bird was a late scratch before Saturday's spring training game after complaining of soreness in his foot during batting practice. Bird underwent an MRI and CT scan but those tests showed no structural damage. And so Pandora's box opened up once again.

The Yankees have some flexibility on the right side of the infield with Walker able to play both first and second base.

He missed 2016 after surgery to fix a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

Last season, Ellsbury batted.264 with seven homers, 39 RBIs and 22 steals in 112 games. He missed all of 2016 with a shoulder injury.

Kansas coughed up most of a 20-point, second-half lead before holding off No. 5 Clemson , 80-76 in the Midwest Region at Omaha. We played pretty good tonight, except how it closed. "Even workers who aren't deskbound will be distracted by these games".

New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone says it's too early to know if first baseman Greg Bird will be sidelined for Opening Day on Thursday at Toronto because of inflammation in his right foot.

As for Bird, it's just one more blow to his already injury-plagued career.

So far this spring, Bird has slashed.154/.267/.231 with one homer, one double and four RBI over 18 games.

Alternatively, Boone can employ the strategy used by Joe Girardi last season, putting the left-handed Didi Gregorius in the middle of the righties.

Now, the Bombers must contemplate whether Bird - who was so dynamic in the playoffs, posting three homers and a.938 OPS - can be their long-term answer at first. "They're different issues. Just like the removal surgery on the other side [the os trigonum], which takes care of the problem, this removal of the broken spur should resolve the problem". There's also the versatile Brandon Drury, though NY prefers to station him at third base. Dr. Martin O'Malley is to operate Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NY.
