Rockies' Greg Bird: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday.

Bird was competing for a backup role at first base during spring training but was unable to secure a spot on the Opening Day roster after hitting .200 with one home run and four RBI in 19 Cactus League games. Josh Fuentes should serve as the primary backup behind C.J. Cron at first base, while Bird will likely begin the year at Triple-A Albuquerque.

Rockies' Greg Bird: Still competing for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird is still competing for a spot on the major-league roster with less than two weeks remaining until Opening Day, Thomas Harding of reports.

Bird has appeared in 13 Cactus League games this spring but has gone just 4-for-27 with a home run, three runs, three RBI, four walks and eight strikeouts. The 28-year-old has shown glimpses of promise over four seasons in the majors but has struggled to generate results on a consistent basis. If he does earn a roster spot to begin the regular season, he'd have to settle for a depth role behind C.J. Cron and Josh Fuentes.

Rockies' Greg Bird: Blasts walkoff homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Saturday's spring win over the Mariners.

Bird entered Saturday's Cactus League matchup as a ping hitter and recorded his first extra-base hit of the spring with his walkoff home run with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning. If the 28-year-old makes the major-league roster to begin the season, he'll likely have to settle for a bench role with C.J. Cron and Josh Fuentes slated to handle the bulk of the work at first base. Bird has gone 3-for-20 with one home run, three runs, four walks and five strikeouts over his first 10 spring games this year.

Rockies' Greg Bird: Invited to Rockies' camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (illness) signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Thursday and will attend big-league camp for spring training, Thomas Harding of illness.

Bird didn't appear in any major-league games during the abbreviated 2020 season and tested positive for COVID-19 in late September. Over his final three seasons with the Yankees, the 28-year-old hit .194 with 21 home runs and 67 RBI over 140 games. He'll attempt to crack the major-league roster with Colorado as a non-roster invitee.

Phillies' Greg Bird: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird tested positive for COVID-19 during his intake testing after signing with the Phillies, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Bird signed a minor-league deal with the Phillies earlier in September, but he wasn't able to join the alternate squad due to his positive COVID-19 test. He was left off the team's postseason player pool as a result, although he didn't have contact with any players within the organization.

Phillies' Greg Bird: Signs with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird signed a minor-league deal with Philadelphia on Tuesday and was added to the 60-player pool, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

The 27-year-old competed for the starting job at first base with the Rangers to begin the season, but he missed the Opening Day roster and suffered a calf injured once he was promoted, only to be DFA'd and released after recovering from the injury. Bird appeared in only 10 games for the Yankees last season and went 6-for-35, but he'll provide the Phillies with some depth at first base with Rhys Hoskins (elbow) potentially requiring Tommy John surgery.

Greg Bird: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird elected free agency Friday.

Bird will look for a new team rather than head to the Rangers' alternate training site. He'll likely have a tough time finding a big-league roster spot given that he owns a .194/.287/.388 slash line since the start of the 2017 season.

Rangers' Greg Bird: Activated and DFA'd
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (calf) was activated off the 10-day injured list and designated for assignment by the Rangers on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old landed on the injured list with the calf strain shortly after having his contract selected by the Rangers, and he's now been removed from the 40-man roster. Bird didn't appear in a game during his brief time with the team, but he could return to the alternate training site if he clears waivers.

Rangers' Greg Bird: Out with calf strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right calf strain, retroactive to Aug. 1.

Bird had his contract selected by the Rangers over the weekend, but he'll head to the injured list before making a game appearance. The 27-year-old doesn't have an official timetable for his return, though he'll be eligible to be activated Aug. 11.

Rangers' Greg Bird: Set to earn promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird will have his contract purchased by the Rangers, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Bird is set to join the Rangers ahead of Friday's series opener in San Francisco. The 27-year-old will likely settle in behind Todd Frazier in a reserve role at first base. Ronald Guzman was optioned in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Greg Bird: Absent from Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird wasn't included on the Rangers' Opening Day roster, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The veteran slugger entered camp competing with Ronald Guzman for the starting role at first base, but Todd Frazier will end up taking the job while Isiah Kiner-Falefa starts at third base. Bird was unable to distinguish himself during summer training, and the fact he isn't on the 40-man roster gave Guzman a clear advantage for the backup job. Bird is now set to report to the alternate training site in hopes of receiving an in-season opportunity.

Rangers' Greg Bird: In competition for backup job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird and Ronald Guzman are competing for the backup job at first base, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

The two were originally in competition to start, but Isiah Kiner-Falefa's impressive performance at spring and summer training earned him the starting job at third base, shifting Todd Frazier over to first base. Bird joined the Rangers on a minor-league deal in February after being limited to 10 games with the Yankees in 2019 due to a foot injury.

Rangers' Greg Bird: Collects first summer hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird went hitless over his first 11 summer at-bats before banging out two hits the last two days, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Bird and Ronald Guzman are locked in a battle for the starting job at first base, but neither player has stood out. The longer both players struggle at the plate, the greater the opening created for the hot-hitting Isiah Kiner-Falefa, who could hit his way into the lineup at third base while Todd Frazier moves across the diamond to first.

Rangers' Greg Bird: Will compete at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird has landed a spot in Texas' 60-man player pool.

Bird was in camp for spring training as a non-roster invitee with a shot at winning the starting first base job. Neither he nor Ronald Guzman earned the spot, which remains open as the ramp up to the new Opening Day begins later this week. Bird and Guzman will battle it out over the next three weeks, though the Rangers have a possible backup plan that involves moving Todd Frazier to first if the club is confident Isiah Kiner-Falefa or Nick Solak is ready for the everyday gig at third base.

Rangers' Greg Bird: Hitless spring continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird started at first base and went 0-for-3 in Sunday's spring game against the Dodgers.

Bird is competing with Ronald Guzman for the starting first base job, but he still doesn't have a hit in 15 spring plate appearances. Guzman (3-for-15) hasn't done much better, although he had a home run Saturday and probably has the edge at this point. As both hit from the left side, the Rangers may choose to keep one while finding a platoon partner from the right side of the plate.

Rangers' Greg Bird: Healthy to start camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (foot) said Tuesday that he had no health issues to start camp, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

A healthy season would be a rarity for Bird, who's played a total of 173 games over the last four seasons combined. He'll need both health and improved performance if he's to play a significant role in Texas this season, as his career .211/.301/.424 slash line in 700 major-league games isn't nearly good enough for an everyday first baseman.

Rangers' Greg Bird: Inks minor-league deal with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (foot) signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday, George A. King III of the New York Post reports.

Bird's big-league career has been plagued by injuries; he's been limited to just 140 games over the last four seasons combined, primarily due to foot, ankle and shoulder injuries. The 27-year-old first baseman went 6-for-35 with six runs scored and 16 strikeouts across just 10 games played for the Yankees in 2019. Although Bird received an invite to major-league camp for spring training, it is unlikely that he begins the 2020 season in Texas with Todd Frazier, Ronald Guzman and Danny Santana all likely to see some time at the first-base position.

Greg Bird: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (foot) cleared waivers and became a free agent Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Things just didn't work out for Bird in New York, as he was limited by injuries to just 140 games over the last four seasons combined, hitting .194/.287/.388 over that stretch. As a 27-year-old with significant injury concerns and very little success at the big-league level, he may be stuck looking for a minor-league deal this winter.

November 20, 2019 08:36 PM
Yankees' Greg Bird: DFA'd by Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (foot) was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Wednesday.

Bird was limited to 10 games in 2019 after tearing his left plantar fascia in mid-April. The 27-year-old is expected to play in the Dominican Winter League, which will be his first game action since suffering the injury. Luke Voit is set to enter the 2020 campaign as New York's starting first baseman.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Will play winter ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (foot) will play winter ball for Gigantes del Cibao of the Dominican Winter League.

Bird tore his left plantar fascia in mid-April and never returned to game action. How he fares in winter ball could hint at his role for the Yankees next season, though his injury history means it would be unwise for the team to count on much from him.
