RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Bird showed promise in 2015 when a season-ending injury to Mark Teixeira thrust the then 22-year-old into a starting role for a playoff team. He smacked 11 home runs with a .268 ISO in 46 games, but unfortunately, he didn't get a chance to build on that campaign. Bird's 2016 season ended before it even began with shoulder surgery in February. He returned to action in the Arizona Fall League, but hit just .215 with one home run in 17 games. With Teixeira now out of the picture, Bird is in position to open up the season as the everyday first baseman. The lefty's power will be a natural fit with the short porch in right field at Yankee Stadium, but he'll need to find a way to cut down on his strikeouts to really take the next step forward (29.8 percent strikeout rate in 2015).

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.
