The Yankees will be without their 25-year-old first baseman for the first 6-8 weeks of the season after he undergoes right ankle surgery on Tuesday to remove a small broken spur.

On Saturday afternoon, Greg Bird was scheduled to be in the lineup for the New York Yankees as they took on the Atlanta Braves in a split squad game in Kissimmee Florida. Bird underwent an MRI and CT scan but those tests showed no structural damage.

The New York Yankees feared for the worst. "We're certainly going to miss Greg, but we feel good about what we can do from a matchup standpoint with those guys". He declined a chance to give it a trial run in an interview, and when Stanton hit a spring training home run a couple of weeks ago, Sterling proclaimed it "a Stantonian blast!" There was always that caveat, though, "if he can stay healthy". He had surgery on the ankle in July and was limited to just 48 games.

Bird fouled a ball off his foot in spring training past year and was never right throughout the season.

Offering pop from both sides of the plate, Walker won't produce the way the Yankees believe Bird can, but he won't be an easy out in a stacked lineup, either.

The righthanded-hitting Tyler Austin, 26, was added to the 25-man roster.

Austin gives the Yankees a right-handed complement to Walker with more power. Lind remains without a job at this point. Stanton, Judge, and Sanchez are all right-handed hitters, so having Bird in the lineup would allow Aaron Boone to split the righties up with a lefty, making pitching to the lineup as a whole much more hard.

The same foot that caused him to miss so much time in 2017.

If the oft-injured Bird needs to go the disabled list, Tyler Austin and Neil Walker could get time at first base.
