He chose to sign with the Dodgers, rescinding an agreement with the University of Southern Mississippi, where he had originally chosen to play college baseball.[2] Bird began his career with the Arizona League Dodgers in 2012 and then split 2013 between the Ogden Raptors of the Pioneer League and the Great Lakes Loons of the Midwest League.[3][4] He was 4–9 with a 5.38 ERA in 28 appearances (20 starts) between the two levels.
