Corey Bird
Name: Corey Thomas Bird
Born: Aug 11, 1995 in Charleston, W.Va. USA
College: Marshall
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 185 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 7th round (203rd overall) by the Miami Marlins in 2016 (signed for $175,000)
A three-year starter at Marshall, Bird is a plus runner and defender with a solid-average arm who could likely defend in the big leagues right now. Though Bird has been a .300 hitter throughout his college career, it's an empty batting average. He slugged .335 this spring and is more of a slap hitter, who is inconsistent with his setup and approach at the plate. Bird stole 34 bases in 38 attempts and could have a future as a speedy defensive-first fourth outfielder who can play all three spots.
