Yankees first baseman Greg Bird said he is feeling good and seeing the ball well after hitting his first home run of the season in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Houston Astros at Yankee Stadium.
"I'm feeling good at the plate and in the field, and the timing and all of that," Bird said, according to the New York Post's Howie Kussoy. "Just gotta stay the course. That's the hardest thing."
Bird, who made his season debut Saturday after undergoing ankle surgery, went 2-for-4 with a solo home run off Justin Verlander in the seventh inning, the lone Yankees' run.
