Greg Bird (plantar fascia tear) placed on 10-day IL

The Yankees have placed Greg Bird on the 10-day IL with a left plantar fascia tear and promoted Mike Ford from Triple-A. The team also transferred Jacoby Ellsbury to the 60-day IL in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Impact

Whatever curse has been placed on the Yankees is sparing no one, as Bird joins Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Andujar, and Aaron Hicks on the injured list. Bird had been doing next to nothing this season, batting just .171 with a .550 OPS. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined with the injury, but, particularly given Bird's history, it's likely to be a lengthy absence. At the very least, Clint Frazier's and Luke Voit's presence in the lineup should remain constant even when Hicks returns in light of this news.
