Reds activated OF Brennan Boesch from the 15-day disabled list.

Boesch, out since August 22 with a right ankle contusion, didn't have any issues over three games during his minor league rehab assignment. The 30-year-old will serve as an extra outfielder down the stretch.
Sep 8 - 10:42 AM

Reds placed OF Brennan Boesch on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle contusion.

Boesch fouled a ball off his ankle during batting practice last week and the injury hasn't improved as the club had hoped. He should be back with the big league club as soon as he's eligible to come off the disabled list. A corresponding roster move will be announced on Monday.
Aug 30 - 5:41 PM

Brennan Boesch was scratched from the Reds' lineup Sunday after fouling a ball off his ankle during batting practice.

He should be fine in a day or two. The Reds are now going with Jason Bourgeois in left field, Ryan LaMarre in center and Skip Schumaker in right in their re-shuffled outfield.
Aug 23 - 1:20 PM

Reds recalled OF Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Louisville.

Boesch was sent down in June after hitting .125/.169/.143 over 32 games. He could see some starts in center field with Billy Hamilton (shoulder) out.
Aug 19 - 2:47 PM

Reds optioned OF Brennan Boesch to Triple-A Louisville.

Boesch cracked the Opening Day roster after inking a minor league deal but went on to bat just .125/.169/.143 over 32 games. The 30-year-old has been steadily fading since a nice start to his big league career a few years ago.
Jun 16 - 7:04 PM

Reds purchased the contract of OF Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Louisville.

Boesch may have benefited from the injury to Jason Bourgeois, but his strong spring play also secured his role on the Opening Day roster. He'll function as the team's fourth outfielder and could be worth a look in daily leagues when battling right-handed pitching.
Apr 5 - 7:12 PM

Brennan Boesch continued to swing a hot bat on Sunday against the Angels, finishing 2-for-5 with an RBI double.

Boesch has hit in four consecutive spring games, three of which included multiple hits. He's hitting .385 (20-for-52) with three doubles, four home runs, and 14 RBI. The Reds are almost certain to include him as a bench player on the 25-man roster when spring training ends.
Mar 29 - 6:27 PM

Brennan Boesch contributed a two-run double and a solo home run over four at-bats in Saturday's 9-5 victory over the Cubs.

Boesch, starting in center field, doubled in the Reds' second and third runs in their four-run first inning, then added a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh to make it 9-5. Boesch has been superb for the Reds this spring, batting .383 (18-for-47) with four home runs and 13 RBI. He will very likely break camp with the Reds on the 25-man roster as part of the bench.
Mar 28 - 7:11 PM

Brennan Boesch belted a three-run homer off Brian Schlitter on Friday, powering the Reds to a 5-2 victory over the Cubs in Cactus League play.

Boesch seems likely to win a spot on the Reds bench this spring, where he'll serve as a backup outfielder and first baseman. He's off to a terrific start to the spring, going 3-for-6 (.500) with a homer and four RBI.
Mar 6 - 10:42 PM

Brennan Boesch finished 2-for-2 with an RBI as the Reds routed the Indians 10-0 in Tuesday afternoon's Cactus League opener.

Boesch singled up the middle in the bottom of the sixth inning, scoring Chris Dominguez for the Reds' eighth run of the game. Boesch played right field in this one. He'll see action at all three outfield spots and first base this spring as he tries to make a case for an Opening Day roster spot.
Mar 3 - 6:34 PM

Reds manager Bryan Price said that non-roster invitee Brennan Boesch will see work at all three outfield spots, as well as first base, as he competes for a bench spot on the team's Opening Day roster.

If he can adequately cover center field and first base defensively, the added versatility would go a long way toward earning Boesch a spot on the roster. The 29-year-old is a career .256/.309/.412 hitter and would represent a nice left-handed bat off the bench.
Feb 28 - 11:37 AM

Reds signed OF Brennan Boesch to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Boesch batted .187/.203/.293 with two home runs over 79 plate appearances with the Angels this past season. The 29-year-old could compete for a bench job in the spring.

Angels designated OF Brennan Boesch for assignment.

Boesch was left off the Angels' ALDS roster and now he is on waivers. The 29-year-old corner outfielder struggled mightily this season in Anaheim, batting just .187 with a .496 across 79 plate appearances.
