Greg Bird to Undergo Ankle Surgery, Will Miss 6-8 Weeks

Bird was said to be meeting with specialists to determine the next step. Neil Walker and Tyler Austin can fill in until Bird comes back (Don't be shocked if Adam Lind finds his way back in Pinstripes). When the foot did not improve, O'Malley operated July 18 to remove the os trigonum bone in the ankle.

An injury to the same ankle-suffered when he fouled a ball off his foot in the team's final spring training game-kept Bird out for most of 2017.

"It's purely coincidence", Tehrany said by phone early Monday night. He declined a chance to give it a trial run in an interview, and when Stanton hit a spring training home run a couple of weeks ago, Sterling proclaimed it "a Stantonian blast!" "They're different issues. Just like the removal surgery on the other side [the os trigonum], which takes care of the problem, this removal of the broken spur should resolve the problem". In four seasons with NY, he is batting.264 with 39 homers, 198 RBIs and 102 steals.

Bird was a late scratch from Saturday's Spring Training lineup, complaining of soreness in his right foot.

Furore erupts around Indian PM Modi's app over alleged data sharing
The Congress and the BJP has been engaged in a bitter war of words since the news of Facebook data breach became public last week. Anderson wrote in a separate tweet that the domain where app data was being sent is classified as a phishing link by G-Data.

The Greg Bird injury situation is becoming a trend that has Yankees fans cringing. 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.

Now, the Bombers must contemplate whether Bird - who was so dynamic in the playoffs, posting three homers and a.938 OPS - can be their long-term answer at first. We assume when something crops up that's serious, we assume our body's going to let us know immediately.
