Yankees' Greg Bird Needs Ankle Surgery; Expected To Miss 6-8 Weeks
Апреля 24 2018, 06:57 | Van Peters
Brandon Drury seen here last month in Tampa has swelling around elbow after getting hit Friday
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.
Greg Bird is once again headed under the knife. There's also the versatile Brandon Drury, though NY prefers to station him at third base. On July 18, he had surgery that included the removal of the os trigonum bone in the foot. It's another alarming injury for the 25-year-old, who missed the entire 2016 season with a shoulder injury and most of 2017 with a foot issue. With utility man Ronald Torreyes and the young Tyler Wade on the roster, it makes sense to platoon those two at second while starting Walker at first until Bird is ready to get back in the lineup.
"It's purely coincidence", Tehrany said by phone early Monday night. His rehab protocol will commence in NY. However, this doesn't solve the problem of Who's on First. 3B Brandon Drury, hit on the left elbow by pitch Friday, is set to play in Monday night's spring-training finale at Atlanta. Despite a season lost statistically speaking, Bird managed to slash a promising.253/.316/.575 following his August 26th reinstatement, while also providing clutch power in the Yankees magical postseason run.
Offering pop from both sides of the plate, Walker won't produce the way the Yankees believe Bird can, but he won't be an easy out in a stacked lineup, either. We assume when something crops up that's serious, we assume our body's going to let us know immediately. "He may have had that for quite some time; he just never really noticed it until recently". He covered high school and college sports, then shifted to the Jets beat.
