    Yankees acquired INF Brandon Drury from the Diamondbacks as part of a three-team trade.

    He good?

    Not bad. Could improve those numbers at Yankee Stadium too. Play 2nd and 3rd base.

    Off topic, but did anyone watch Eric Hosmer's introductory press conference with the Padres? He looked miserable. Clearly wanted to stay with the Royals or go to a contender, but money talks!

    Gotta figure which out of Wade or Torreyes is the odd man out.

    Greg Bird with a bomb and Gary Sanchez (with his 4th HR of the spring) lead the Yanks' 8-5 win. Severino sharp.

    @Stokes: you taking notes?

    Bird hurt. Again. Can Ellsbury or Hicks play first?

    Bird Out 6-8 Weeks After Surgery

    https://www.si.com/mlb/2018/03/26/yankees-greg-bird-injury-update-foot-surgery

    Yankees first baseman Greg Bird will miss the first six to eight weeks of the season after undergoing surgery Tuesday on his injured right ankle, the team announced Monday.

    Bird was a late scratch before Saturday’s spring training game after complaining of soreness in his foot during batting practice. He returned to New York to visit a foot specialist and it was determined he would need surgery to remove a broken bone spur.

    An injury to the same ankle—suffered when he fouled a ball off his foot in the team’s final spring training game—kept Bird out for most of 2017. He also missed the entire 2016 season with a shoulder injury.

    With Bird injured, the Yankees will turn to Tyler Austin and Neil Walker to play first base. Walker was supposed to be the starter at second, which means Tyler Wade and Ronald Torreyes should see increased playing time.

    New York had signed veteran first baseman Adam Lind to a minor league contract earlier this winter, though he was released on March 14. Lind, who batted .303 with an .875 OPS for the Nationals last season, remains a free agent.

    The Yankees open the season on Thursday in Toronto.

    The Yankees have enough pop in their lineup to cover for the loss of Bird. Still too early to move on from him since he's still cheap and has potential, but this is the 3rd straight year where he's gonna miss part of the season.

    Greg Ostrich. A bird that can’t fly.

    Should have signed Hosmer like I wanted. If they did, I think the Yankees would be unstoppable for the next few seasons, Similar to 96-03. They still can be though. Hopefully Bird gets back by June and stays healthy the rest of the year. He has talent, we know that.
