Yankees' Greg Bird: Headed to extended spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (ankle) is expected to go to Tampa on Sunday to take part in extended spring training, Dan Martin of the New York Post reports.

Bird was able to take grounders Tuesday for the first time since sustaining the bone bruise in his ankle that landed him on the disabled list, and has already progressed to taking light swings. He'll begin facing live pitching at extended spring training, but then the first baseman will likely move up to a minor league rehab stint during the middle of next week. Given his slow start to the season and the fact that he missed all of 2016 with an injury, Bird will likely be taken along with extreme caution, so it appears he still could be multiple weeks away from joining the big league club.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Hitting off tee Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (ankle) will begin hitting off a tee Monday, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

Bird began some light running last week, and manager Joe Girardi reported that the first baseman is progressing well. The 24-year-old will still be taken along with caution and will slowly have to work his way up from Monday's tee and toss session to hitting live pitching, meaning he'll likely remain out through at least the end of May. Chris Carter figures to continue getting the bulk of the action at first base in his absence.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Runs lightly Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (ankle) did light running Thursday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Although Bird was able to increase his level of movement Thursday, it appears he's still weeks from returning. Manager Joe Girardi said that the club hopes Bird will be cleared to participate in baseball activities early next week, so a more specific timeframe for Bird's eventual return should become available as his workouts intensify. While Bird is out, Chris Carter is in line to continue spending time at first base.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Could be 'weeks' away from return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday that Bird (ankle) could be "weeks" away from returning from the disabled list, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports.

Bird, who hit the disabled list May 2 with a bone bruise in his right ankle, has yet to receive clearance to resume baseball activities and won't do so until his ankle pain subsides completely. Cashman's comments don't seem to indicate that Bird is especially close to ramping up his workouts, so those in single-season leagues in need of an extra bench spot may be better off cutting bait with the 24-year-old. Chris Carter is expected to see the bulk of the starts at first base while Bird is sidelined.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Awaiting clearance for baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Joe Girardi said Thursday that Bird (ankle) is improving but still not ready to resume baseball activities, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. "Until he's pain-free, there's no reason to start," said Girardi.

Bird had his ankle reevaluated Thursday, and while Girardi didn't get into specifics, it sounds as though the power hitting first baseman still needs some time before ramping up his activity level. Chris Carter and Matt Holliday figure to continue splitting first base duties as long as Bird is on the shelf. Once Bird begins on-field work, the Yankees will have a clearer time frame for the slugger's return.
