Former Yankees first baseman Greg Bird has signed a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers, The Post's George A. King III reported Tuesday afternoon.
After nine seasons in the Yankees system, Bird will look for a fresh start and try to make the Rangers major league roster -- the deal includes an invite to major league spring training.
The 27-year-old played just 10 games for the Yankees last season after suffering a torn left plantar fascia, but his injury history before this made his time in New York tough to watch.
Bird came up in 2015 and showed some promise after hitting .261 with 11 homers, 31 RBIs and a .872 OPS in 46 games.
But in parts of the last four seasons, Bird played just 186 games in New York, hitting .211 with 32 homers, 98 RBI and a .725 OPS. In that span, he's had right shoulder surgery and two right ankle surgeries that made him miss large chunks of those seasons.
