Yankees | Small chance for Greg Bird

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:11:11 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Greg Bird (shoulder) is unlikely to work his way back into action for the end of the 2016 season, but it's not entirely impossible, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Bird shouldn't be drafted anywhere in 2016 aside from deeper keeper leagues. The Yanks will use some combination of Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez and Dustin Ackley at first base with Bird done for the year.

Yankees | Greg Bird's season over

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 11:36:44 -0800

New York Yankees 1B Greg Bird (shoulder) will miss all of the 2016 season, as he needs surgery to fix a torn labrum in his shoulder Tuesday, Feb. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bird, one of the Yankees top prospects, had 11 home runs in just 46 games for New York last year. He most certainly would have had a big role in 2016 given injury concerns for both Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez. Bird will remain a notable prospect for dynasty and keeper leaguers given his excellent power profile, but you can't count on him until 2017 and beyond.

Yankees | NY willing to deal Luis Severino

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 10:03:02 -0800

The New York Yankees are willing to trade SP Luis Severino in a package that would land them Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez. However, the belief is that the Yankees don't have enough pieces to snag Fernandez, even if they include 1B Greg Bird.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez is an elite young arm that won't come cheaply for any team, and it's unlikely that he's dealt. Severino has gigantic upside as a strikeout artist, too, and he can be had for much cheaper in fantasy drafts next spring.

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 08:11:56 -0800

New York Yankees 1B Greg Bird is likely to begin the season at Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes Barre, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Fantasy Tip: Bird will still be draft-worthy in the latter rounds of traditional drafts after a strong showing down the stretch.
