LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Yankees first baseman Greg Bird has been scratched from the starting lineup because of a sore right foot.

Bird had been scheduled to start a split-squad road game Saturday against Atlanta.

This is the second consecutive year that Bird had a late spring training injury.

Bird fouled a ball off his right ankle in the Yankees’ final spring training game in 2017. He had surgery on the ankle in July and was limited to just 48 games.
