This is a good sign. Greg Bird is hitting home runs!

The New York Post writes that it looks as if Bird may be on his way to getting back with the New York Yankees.

"The young Yankees first baseman, who is returning from a right ankle injury, went 2-for-4 with two homers and three RBIs Friday night in his third game for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre."

Girardi was asked when he thinks Bird will come back:

'It’s really hard to say... For Greg Bird, just because he hasn’t played a lot in the last two years, it is hard to say how long it might take him to get going. Sometimes I feel young guys in those situations can get going quicker than an older player.'"

Now, that's just Joe being cagey, because the reality is, if Bird is hitting well and feeling good, they will get him back to the Bigs soon.  You gotta feel bad for guys like Tyler Austin and Garrett Cooper, but maybe because of Bird's long absence they keep one of them up with Bird and platoon at first. 

Who knows... I'm just glad Bird is making strides.  It's exciting!
