Analysis: Bird was 3 for 3 with his first homer of the season Sunday after entering the contest 1 for 26 with 13 strikeouts and zero RBIs on the young season.

The pair of 24-year old sluggers is putting up big numbers in exhibition games, both hitting well over .300 with three homers apiece. Analysis: Bird went deep 11 times over 46 games in 2015, but the first baseman missed all of last season due to right shoulder surgery.
