Here are some baseball notes to get you by during this chilly Saturday evening.
— Good news for Greg Bird: he was named the Arizona Fall League MVP earlier this afternoon. He hit .313/.391/.556 with six homers in 26 games during the Arizona Fall League. He’ll be back in Trenton next season but the Yankees are projecting he’ll be in the Majors at some capacity in 2016.
— Former Yankees second basemen Robinson Cano fractured his toe during the MLB All-Star game in Japan. He’s done for the series and he’ll be out for the next 3-4 weeks. The Mariners said Cano should be ready by Spring Training.
— Yoan Moncada has declared free agency earlier today, according to Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com. Moncada still has to be cleared by the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control. If the Yankees are able to nab Moncada, they would have to do it this summer.
