Yankees' Bird to see foot specialist

  • Yankees' Greg Bird to have surgery to remove bone spur on right ankle, expected to be out 6-8 weeks

Considered an integral part of a lineup that includes Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez, the Yankees and Bird were both looking forward to a full season from the first baseman.

"I don't think it's a surprise, but any of those potential perceptions in my eyes have been shattered", Boone said. He's a vital member of our organization. Surgery will be performed by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Martin O'Malley on Tuesday in Manhattan.

It's the second straight year Bird injured his foot before breaking camp. He hit.227 with four homers in spring training.

The troubles didn't stop there.

Bird is expected to rehab for six-to-eight weeks before returning to game action. Severino came on as the team's ace in the second half of the season, leading them to the 2017 American League Championship versus the Houston Astros, in which they held a 3-2 advantage, only to fall in the final two games to Houston's powerful and crafty young team, in the end, 4-3. He played the rest of the regular season and the playoffs.

This is the second consecutive year that Bird had a late spring training injury. He didn't foul a ball off his foot, either.

Cashman said the current soreness is in a similar area. "But I have no idea what we're dealing with".

"Hopefully this is something he will now put behind him for good", Boone said.

"If the first pitch is there, I'll take a swing", he said.

This will be the third straight year that he has to miss a significant amount of time due to injury and leaves the question all Yankee fans are asking: can we trust him longterm? "We're ready to start the season", Sabathia said.

Tyler Austin has played 35 of his 51 career Major League Baseball games at first base, batting.236 with seven home runs and 20 RBI.

The Yankees optioned starting pitcher Domingo German to the RailRiders on Saturday, and therefore will keep Jonathan Holder on the opening day roster as the eighth reliever.

While Boone had previously considered the idea of moving Judge to the top of the order, he said he gave it more serious consideration on Thursday on the bus ride back from Fort Myers, Florida. With your switch-hitters, you can kind of protect guys - and I don't think you would ever consider it if we didn't have as deep a lineup as we do. "We feel pretty good that the surgery is fairly minor and they're going to go in and correct the problem". He also allowed 11 hits. This isn't the start the Yankees wanted to get off to, but the reality is their lineup is still highly potent without him.

That will have to wait for now as the Yankees have to turn to plans B and C.

The Seattle Mariners returned Rule 5 pick Mike Ford to the Yankees on Saturday. He has spent more than half those games playing first base.

If for whatever reason the Yankees needed to add to the first-base depth later in the season, they also have a pair of players in the farm system who are getting work at the position.
