Bird (foot) has yet to resume baseball activities and his progress is "going slow" according to manager Aaron Boone, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Bird was moved to the 60-day injured list Sunday while he recovers from plantar fasciitis. He's well behind his initial 4-to-6 week timetable and won't be eligible to return until mid-June. It's not clear when the Yankees expect him back. The team picked up Kendrys Morales from Oakland in exchange for cash considerations Tuesday.
Bird (foot) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. Bird landed on the injured list in mid-April and was given an initial return timeline of 4-to-6 weeks but was still feeling pain in his left foot after shedding his walking boot in early May. The 26-year-old remains without a recovery timetable, though he won't be eligible to be activated from the 60-day IL until mid-June.
Bird shed his walking boot but is still feeling pain in his left foot and is without a timetable to return, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. He is still dealing with a left plantar fascia tear, and while he is out of the boot, it doesn't sound like he is particularly close to returning from the injured list. Luke Voit, who is slashing .278/.399/.539, has put an end to any debate about who the Yankees' everyday first baseman will be when the team is at full strength. It's possible, however, that Bird could return in time to still get some starts at designated hitter before the rest of the team's mashers come off the injured list.
The Yankees are hopeful Bird (foot) can return from the 10-day injured list in 4-to-6 weeks, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Beyond ruling Bird out for more than the minimum 10 days, the Yankees haven't officially confirmed an estimated recovery timeline for the first baseman, who will be confined to a walking boot for the remainder of April. The Yankees should offer a more formal update on Bird's outlook once the boot is removed, but the team probably won't be aggressive in rushing the 26-year-old back from the injured list before mid-May given his poor performance prior to getting hurt in addition to his career-long durability concerns.
Bird (foot) will remain in a walking boot for two weeks before further evaluation, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Bird was placed on the 10-day injured list earlier in the day due to a left plantar fascia tear, and general manager Brian Cashman has since confirmed that the first baseman will need longer than 10 days on the shelf. Luke Voit and Mike Ford will be asked to pick up the slack while Bird is gone.
