|Greg Bird is one of those walks-a-million-type prospects who anyone who's ever readMoneyball will insist is being overlooked by the masses. But a .400-plus on-base percentage in the lower levels of the minors isn't always a precursor to greatness, especially when accompanied by a high strikeout rate. Then again, the Yankees gave Bird a huge bonus when they selected him in the fifth round of the 2011 draft, which shows how much they believe in his bat. If nothing else, he profiles as a plus power hitter. Just be careful not to make him into more than he is. Remember: Tyler Austin had a .405 on-base percentage at Class A Charleston (and with a much higher batting average than Bird) before stalling at Double-A last year. Because of his particular skill set, Bird will be a pet prospect (get it?) to many, but as an incomplete hitter still working his way up to Double-A, he has some potential pitfalls to overcome.
