Weekly Check In: Greg Bird

It has been so far so good in the month of July for Yankees first base prospect Greg Bird. In the last month or so he has come off the disabled list, hit some towering shots and bombs for the Double-A Trenton Thunder, got promoted to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre and has continued to hit some towering shots and bombs for the RailRiders. The Yankees have been uber-aggressive with their top prospects this year and Bird is included in this batch of prospects the Yankees now have knocking on their doors.

Bird will finish the season in Scranton unless a devastating injury to Garrett Jones or Mark Teixeira occurs and will presumably get a shot at a spring training “competition” in 2016 if all goes according to plan. Whatever the future holds for the former Arizona Fall League MVP has yet to be determined but Bird has taken the next step in his path to the major leagues and it has been so far so good. Bird is the word.
