I didn't expect this, but the Jays have released Greg Bird from his minor league contract.

They decided not to add him to the opening day roster, and are allowing him to seak other employment. I'm sure some team will take a chance on him.

Really makes it sound as if Alejandro Kirk will be, more or less, full time DH.

Sorry Greg, I take a weekend away and these things happen.
