As good as he’s been, Tyler Austin should be the odd man out when Greg Bird returns

At some point soon, likely within the next week, Greg Bird will return from his ankle surgery and join the Yankees. The Yankees love love love Bird and he is expected to step right in as the everyday first baseman. It would not surprise me at all to see him hitting third or fourth in […] The post As good as he’s been, Tyler Austin should be the odd man out when Greg Bird returns appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Clint Frazier may be the Yankees’ best trade chip, but there are reasons to keep him too

The baseball gods will probably smite the Yankees for this, but at the moment, the Yankees have too many Major League caliber players. They can’t fit them all on the 25-man big league roster.

Greg Bird was supposed to be the Yankees starting first baseman this year, but he got injured again toward the end of spring training. The club had already parted ways with Plans B and C, trading Chase Headley to San Diego and allowing free agent Todd Frazier to sign with the Mets in cost-cutting moves. That left 26-year-old prospect Tyler Austin and newly-signed veteran Neil Walker to man first base, with Bird expected to miss up to...

New York Yankees are already wasting a Greg Bird hot streak

The New York Yankees can seem to do no wrong lately. But their MLB best 31-13 record doesn’t make them infallible and above reproach. Well, it probably does, but we’re going to give it a shot anyway.

Greg Bird is close to returning, and the Yankees could really use his left-handed power
