Weekly Check In: Greg Bird

Another week off the disabled list and another week of taking walks and hitting bombs for the Yankees top first baseman prospect Greg Bird. The Yankees, for once, are being aggressive with their prospects regarding call ups leaving many to wonder if Bird is next. New York has already called up Luis Severino and Aaron Judge to Triple-A and if it had not been for the back injury I believe Bird would already be there as well. For now Bird is biding his time and hitting home runs in Double-A with the Trenton Thunder just waiting on his time to make the drive to Scranton to play for the Scranton RailRiders. I believe he will get that call either this month or next, he’s close.

Bird would essentially displace Kyle Roller on the depth chart in Scranton and would give the team a legitimate first base prospect and backup if Mark Teixeira’s neck injury becomes more of a problem then the Yankees are expecting it to be and leading the fans to believe.

If Bird could add some batting average to this slash and stat line he’d be scary for opposing pitchers:
