Yankees' Greg Bird: Could face live pitching soon
Bird (foot) is headed to Tampa Bay, where he will begin to run and may face live pitching, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
Having run on an "anti-gravity" treadmill earlier in the week, Bird has progressed to hitting off a tee and participating in fielding drills. Though he noted his progress was slower than he had anticipated, Bird will head to Tampa to run outside and step in against human pitchers. The Yankees still haven't given a timeline for his return.
