Just in: this tweet from the Post’s Joel Sherman:
#Yankees announce Greg Bird surgery tomorrow to remove small broken spur on outside aspect of his right ankle. Expected to rehab for 6-8 weeks before returning to game action.
Waaaaah. Why can’t he stay healthy? He was doing so well this spring, but now he’s morphing back into Nick Johnson.
But okay. The sun will come up tomorrow and the Yankees will open the season on Thursday in Toronto, and the NYT predicts we’ll be the team to beat in the AL East.
