New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman is not taking Greg Bird’s most recent injury lightly. He is even going as far as saying he is “worried” about the first baseman.
Another day, another injury for Yankees first baseman Greg Bird. The first baseman was scratched from New York’s lineup on Saturday due to a sore right foot.
Bird has not had the best of luck with his right leg recently, considering he missed the majority of the 2017 season due to him fouling a ball off his right ankle in his final game of spring training.
New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman does not seem too optimistic regarding Bird’s latest setback.
“I’m worried about it, to he honest,” GM Brian Cashman said, “because I’m not sure what we’re dealing with.”
Since debuting in the Bronx in 2015, the left-handed slugger has only played in 94 regular season games, absolutely crushing how he has so much potential but he just can’t seem to stay healthy on the field.
The Yankees have a number of options regarding who Bird’s immediate replacement will be, the options include Tyler Austin, Miguel Andujar, Neil Walker, and a few others.
We will just have to see the severity of this injury following the results of Bird’s upcoming CT scan and MRI.
