2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: GREG BIRD SCRATCHED WITH FOOT SORENESS, HEADED FOR TESTS

                                                            

In a bit of disconcerting news, New York Yankees slugging first baseman Greg Bird was scratched from his scheduled spring training outing Saturday due to a bout of foot soreness that is being checked on by team doctors as we speak.  The disturbing part here is that it is the same foot that Bird had surgery on in his injury-wrecked 2017 campaign and so we can't take anything for granted here.  While Bird has struggled this spring, he is in an excellent spot in the middle of the Yankees' order this season and should get plenty of juicy pitches to hit with Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, and Gary Sanchez surrounding him.  A run at 30 home runs and 90 RBI is very possible but obviously, the health has to fall in line.  Stay tuned for an update.
