New York Yankees suffer DEVASTATING blow ahead of Opening Day

Surgery will be performed by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Martin O'Malley on Tuesday in Manhattan. After missing the entirety of the following season due to shoulder surgery, he resurfaced past year to bat.190/.288/.422 in 48 games.

With Bird injured, the Yankees will turn to Tyler Austin and Neil Walker to play first base.

Instead, the 25-year-old will have to undergo yet another rehab tour. Instead, he'll have his second ankle surgery, keeping him out of commission for upwards of two months.

Luckily for them, they already are.

Despite this news, the Yankees should be fine in his absence. Lind, who batted.303 with an.875 OPS for the Nationals last season, remains a free agent.

Then again, so was past year.

Austin is looking forward to the opportunity. He has slugged 20 homers in 94 career regular season games. Gregorius hit the ball well in the role, tallying 25 homers last season, a Yankee Shortstop record.

It's unclear who received the officials' recommendation to commit Cruz and why it was not acted upon, according to the AP. Cruz denied telling another student that he wanted to use a gun or that he had ingested gasoline, the documents say.

Walker (.842 OPS vs. righties in 2017) and Austin (1.154 career OPS vs. lefties in 36 Major League Baseball at-bats) seemingly complement each other well, granted both players have endured their own share of injuries recently. The 26-year-old will most likely split some time with Walker until Bird is able to return.

Opening Day is just three days away and this is not the start the Yankees were hoping for with Bird.

If Walker and Austin can't get the job done, the Yankees have a few other in-house options, though they're not as desirable.

Ellsbury played his first six-plus seasons with the Boston Red Sox before signing a seven-year, $153 million deal with the Yankees following the 2013 campaign. Billy McKinney, another neophyte at first after converting from the outfield, also showed off his power this spring.

"In the grand scheme of things", the manager said, "hopefully we do look back and it's a short-term bump in the road and we can get him back for good".

So there's no need to go outside the organization just yet.
