New York Yankees designated hitter Matt Holliday and first baseman Greg Bird both took batting practice on the field prior to Monday's game against the Mets.
Holliday, who last played Aug. 4 due to a lower back strain, is hitting .229/.319/.430 with 16 home runs and 51 RBIs this season. He told NJ.com's Brendan Kuty he wasn't sure how much longer he would need to be on the disabled list.
Bird, who has been out since May 1 and underwent ankle surgery nearly a month ago, is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday and could return later in August.
The 24-year-old Bird took batting practice and light running last week when the Yankees played the Blue Jays in Toronto. He was hitting .100 with one home run and three RBIs in 19 games prior to going on the DL.
