The Yankees and original baseman Greg Bird have reached a one-year, $1.2 million agreement in order to avoid salary arbitration, according to the Associated Press.

Bird, 26, struck .199/ / .286/ / .386 with 11 home runs in 82 games for New York in 2018.

Though he’s shown flashes of power, Bird was injured often within his short career, having equaling only 176 games played three Major League seasons. Last July, the Yankees acquired first baseman Luke Voit from the Cardinals, and Voit proceeded to maintain the starting job en route to hitting on .333/.405/.689 together with 14 homers in only 39 games.

Bird’s salary last season was 582,000. With the deadline for exchanging mediation wages figures coming up Friday, the Yankees’ remaining arbitration-eligible players are shortstop Di Di Gregorius, outfielder Aaron Hicks, starting pitchers Luis Severino, James Paxton along with Sonny grey , relievers Dellin Betances along with Tommy Kahnle, along with catcher Austin Romine.
