Yankees' Greg Bird to have ankle surgery, miss 6-8 weeks

New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge (99) and first baseman Greg Bird (33). But Bird visited specialist Dr. Martin O'Malley in NY, where he and the team learned the worst.

Bird is expected to rehab for 6-8 weeks before returning to game action.

In a blog article I wrote during the last pre-season, I predicted, against the odds, that the New York Yankees would take their 28th #World Championship.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora, the bench coach for the Astros last season, said Springer "controls the strike zone for how powerful he is".

The real question now is how the Yankees will fare without the 25-year-old first baseman.

"We're certainly going to miss Greg, but we feel good about what we can do from a matchup standpoint with those guys".

Bird will have surgery will remove a small broken spur on the outside of the right ankle.

After RS setback, Mayawati says BSP's alliance with SP will continue
Replying to a query, Mayawati did not rule out the possibility of Congress as part of the BSP-SP alliance in 2019 Lok Sabha polls. We believe (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and Amit Shah used the system to make their candidates win.

He saw Dr. Martin O'Malley on the Upper East Side on Monday morning. "Hopefully this is something [that] will now [be] put behind him for good". Guys we feel like have a chance of being impactful for us in the big leagues. The path forward without Bird looks clear.

Bird, 25, played in just 48 games last season after requiring surgery on the same right ankle, and hit a mere.190/.288/.422 in 147 at-bats. "I tried to get it".

Boone added, "I think there's a strong case to be made for it, but we'll kind of see". "I think that between Neil and I, we can make some special things happen". Most notably, he homered off Andrew Miller to account for the lone run in a 1-0 victory over Cleveland in Game 3 of the AL Division Series. Boone said "we'll play the matchup game" in determining who plays there on a daily basis, a situation aided by the versatile Tyler Wade, who can play second, third, shortstop and the corner outfield positions.

"This morning I wake up and I'm hitting leadoff", Judge said, per ESPN. He's also a multi-positional player, having appeared at first, second and third base for various teams throughout his career. These two Freedom Tower giants led the major leagues in home runs last season with 59 and 52 dingers, respectively.

"I'll be ready Thursday for sure", Brandon Drury said.

But Bird continues to be plagued by injuries - and he's headed under the knife once more.
