Yankees say Greg Bird has inflammation in foot

His rehab protocol will commence in NY. "We're certainly going to miss Greg, but we feel good about what we can do from a matchup standpoint with those guys".

"I feel like I'm really prepared", Austin said.

"Tyler Austin, next man up, right?" "I know it's upsetting to Greg, but at least we have some answers, and in the grand scheme of things, hopefully we do look back and it's a short-term bump in the road and we can get him back for good".

Greg Bird is once again headed under the knife.

But that doesn't mean anyone should count out Walker.

The opposition leaders soon used the opportunity to say that the BJP used all its tricks to keep a Dalit out of the parliament. Hanumanthaiah got 44 and Hussain 42, while BJP's Rajeev Chandrashekar bagged 50, the highest among the four contestants.

Despite this news, the Yankees should be fine in his absence.

Boone said he's confident Austin can fill the void at first. "But it's like anything else, the more reps you get, especially game reps, the more comfortable you'll be".

Bird was set to finally have his first full season with the Yankees in 2018 to show off his true talent, but it seems like he may be set up for yet another injury-plagued year. It makes sense for him to be in the lineup on Thursday when the Yankees open their season against southpaw J.A. Happ and the Toronto Blue Jays.

"It depends on the matchups, honestly". He led the AL with 127 walks last season and his on-base percentage was.422, third in baseball behind Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds and Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels, who also mostly batted second in their lineups. "Not just who we're facing, but maybe who's on the mound for us, and what kind of defense we want to have out there", Boone said.

A literal painful start to his career in pinstripes, Drury's first at-bat this spring as a member of the Yankees ended when he was hit in the hand. He also played 11 games there during the most recent Arizona Fall League. Severino came on as the team's ace in the second half of the season, leading them to the 2017 American League Championship versus the Houston Astros, in which they held a 3-2 advantage, only to fall in the final two games to Houston's powerful and crafty young team, in the end, 4-3. Hot shot third base prospect Miguel Andujar has begun working at first as well, though it's unlikely he will be ready to play the position anytime soon.
