Greg Bird (1B) TEX - Jun. 28

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=741623

Bird has landed a spot in Texas' 60-man player pool.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bird was in camp for spring training as a non-roster invitee with a shot at winning the starting first base job. Neither he nor Ronald Guzman earned the spot which remains open as the ramp up to the new Opening Day begins later this week. First base remains status quo; Bird and Guzman will battle it over the next three weeks, although the Rangers have a possible backup plan. That involves moving Todd Frazier to first if the club is confident Isiah Kiner-Falefa or Nick Solak is ready for the everyday gig at third base.

Greg Bird (1B) TEX - Mar. 02

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=738486

Bird started at first base and went 0-for-3 in Sunday's spring game against the Dodgers.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bird is competing with Ronald Guzman for the starting first base job, but he still doesn't have a hit in 15 spring plate appearances. Guzman (3-for-15) hasn't done much better, although he had a home run Saturday and probably has the edge at this point.

Rangers signed 1B Greg Bird to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.  If only he can stay healthy.

Agreed.  One of these days someone will give him 400 ABs, and he'll stay healthy, and the results will be solid.

A serious disconnect between his 10 games in the games that count and his 19 games in spring training. I wouldn't totally give up on him.
