Yankees: Greg Bird-Man is Coming

The Yankees have called top prospect, first baseman Greg Bird.

Yanks call up Bird to backup Mark Teixeira, since the Yankees have a stretch of fourteen games straight, without any days off.

I'm excited to see Bird's first major league at-bat, and most importantly maybe he'll add some spark to Yankees offense.

Bird's swing reminds me of Josh Hamilton. Kinda of a helicopter swing, where the ball just jumps off the bat.

Bird in minors, has 12-homeruns, 52-RBIs and batting .277

Here some video highlights of Bird in minors.
