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 MLB.com 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 MLB.com 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.

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.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Will face live pitching soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (foot) will soon progress to live at-bats, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

Bird has been working out at the Yankees' complex in Tampa but has thus far been limited to hitting in a batting cage. He's nearly fully recovered from the foot injury that has cost him all but 10 games this season, and he's set to face live pitching soon. Bird will not return to the field in 2019, but he expects to be ready for the start of spring training next season.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Resumes baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (foot) has hit off a tee and run on a specialized treadmill but remains unlikely to return this season, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

Bird is making slow progress in his recovery from a plantar fascia tear but has not advanced enough for the Yankees to expect a return to action in 2019. The 26-year-old appeared in only 10 games this season, hitting .171 with one homer and 16 strikeouts in 35 at-bats.

August 31, 2019 12:20 PM
Yankees' Greg Bird: Will soon start baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (foot) is progressing in his recovery and will soon resume baseball activities, Randy Miller of NJ.com reports.

Bird has been in and out of a walking boot but is nearing the point where he can begin rehabbing. The 26-year-old has been out since mid-April after being diagnosed with a left plantar fascia tear. Although the Yankees have yet to rule out Bird's return to the field this season, he is unlikely to recover in time to see game action in 2019.

August 8, 2019 02:56 PM
Yankees' Greg Bird: Spotted wearing walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports that Bird is currently wearing a walking boot on his left foot.

Bird has been out since April 16 with plantar fasciitis. Earlier reports indicated that he had shed the walking boot and was running on an anti-gravity treadmill, but this update suggests that his return to the field is not imminent. The 26-year-old has played in only 10 games for the Yankees this season, hitting .171 with 16 strikeouts in 35 at-bats.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Could face live pitching soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

May 27, 2019 12:36 PM
Yankees' Greg Bird: Running on assisted treadmill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird (foot) has started running on an assisted "anti-gravity" treadmill, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Bird has been battling plantar fasciitis since mid-April. He was moved to the 60-day injured list in mid-May, rendering him ineligible to return until mid-June. Given where he's at in his recovery, it's not clear that he'll be back when first eligible, though the Yankees haven't provided a clear timeline since initially saying Bird would be out 4-to-6 weeks.

May 15, 2019 07:16 PM
Yankees' Greg Bird: Progress remains slow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
