On February 1 2016 — The Yankees suffer a blow as one of their best young hitters, 1B Greg Bird, who filled in very well when Mark Teixeira went down with a season-ending injury last August, needs to undergo surgery after re-aggravating a shoulder injury in off-season workouts. He will miss the entire season as a result.
