2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Thanks to an injury to Mark Teixeira, Bird was fast-tracked through the minors. He gave the Yankees 46 quality games and hit 11 home runs in just 178 plate appearances. Between all levels, Bird now has three straight 20-homer seasons, and it's that power that has the Yankees thinking he can be their first baseman of the future. The question will be if Bird can make enough contact to let the power shine. Bird struck out at a 29.8% clip, and only three qualified players struck out more often last year, so Bird will have to continue to show plus power to overcome the whiffs. He has the eye and the patience to make it work, plus he's a left-handed slugger who gets to play half his games in Yankee Stadium, but there is not much margin for error. It's all moot for 2016, unfortunately, as Bird underwent shoulder surgery in February and is slated to miss the entire season.

2015

Birdís minor league numbers look like those of a poor manís Joey Votto. In 2013 he walked 18.7% of the time with a 23.0% strikeout rate and posted a BABIP fueled .288/.428/.511 line with 20 home runs in 573 plate appearances. He followed that up last year by hitting 14 home runs with a .271/.376/.472 slash line in 441 plate appearances across stops at High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton. While his power numbers took a hit at Tampa in the Florida State League, Birdís pop came back in a big way after getting promoted to Double-A. In just 27 games at Trenton, he hit seven of his 14 home runs on the season as a 21-year-old while putting walk and strikeout rates of 15.5% and 23.3%, respectively. Now, entering his age-22 season, Bird looks to pick up where he left off at Double-A, and if he does so, the Yankees could be looking at their first baseman of the future.
