2016

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.
