Date:

Brennan Boesch has elected free agency.

Boesch was designated for assignment earlier this week and has refused an outright assignment. He hit just .187 in 79 plate appearances with the Angels this season and will now seek a minor league deal this winter.
Oct 9 - 7:44 PM

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.
Oct 7 - 5:38 PM

Angels recalled OF Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Boesch will act as outfield depth for the Halos over the final month of the regular season. He has hit .129 with a .345 OPS this year at the major league level.
Sep 2 - 4:52 PM

Angels optioned OF Brennan Boesch to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The Angels had to use six pitchers in relief of injured starter Garrett Richards on Wednesday, so Boesch will be swapped out for a fresh arm. Boesch hasn't helped his cause when he's been up, batting .129/.152/.194 in 31 at-bats with the Angels this season. He'll likely be back up in September.
Aug 21 - 12:05 AM

Angels recalled OF Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Boesch has hit .326/.380/.625 with 22 home runs and 75 RBI in 84 games this season at the Triple-A level, but he probably won't play enough in Anaheim to hold relevance in mixed fantasy leagues. The 29-year-old is a .259/.314/.417 career hitter in the majors.
Aug 12 - 5:43 PM

Angels optioned OF Brennan Boesch to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The 29-year-old outfielder appeared in nine games with the Angels, slashing .231/.231/.308 with no RBI and two strikeouts. He'll continue to function as organizational depth.
Apr 27 - 5:40 PM

Angels purchased the contract OF Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Salt Lake.

The Angels are piecing together an outfield with Josh Hamilton and Kole Calhoun on the disabled list. Boesch had two home runs and nine RBI through the first 13 games with Salt Lake and will be a bench bat for the Angels.
Apr 16 - 6:37 PM

Brennan Boesch went 2-for-4 in a losing effort against the Athletics in Cactus League play on Sunday.

The 28-year-old outfielder is in camp as a non-roster invitee, but could find his way onto the Angels bench with a strong showing this spring.
Mar 2 - 10:21 PM

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

Boesch batted .275/.302/.529 with three homers over 23 games for the Yankees last season and then failed to catch on elsewhere after being released in July. The 28-year-old was productive at times in the past for the Tigers but could be facing an uphill battle to crack the Angels' Opening Day roster.
Jan 28 - 6:26 PM

Yankees released OF Brennan Boesch.

Boesch was the casualty with the Yankees needing to make room for Brent Lillibridge on the 40-man roster before Friday's game. The 28-year-old outfielder hit .275/.302/.529 with three homers and eight RBI during his 23 games with the Bombers. He shouldn't have a problem catching on elsewhere.

Brennan Boesch was removed from Wednesday's game at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre due to shoulder tightness.

It's not clear how long he'll be out, but Boesch admitted that he's been nursing the condition for a while. Obviously he won't be called up by the Yankees anytime soon.
Wed, Jun 5, 2013 10:36:00 PM

Yankees optioned OF Brennan Boesch to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Boesch is the odd man out now that Andy Pettitte is back from the disabled list. The 28-year-old is batting .275 (14-for-51) with three home runs and eight RBI in sporadic playing time with the Yankees this season. He figures to return later this summer.
Mon, Jun 3, 2013 04:13:00 PM

Brennan Boesch went 3-for-4 with his third home run of the season in the Yankees' loss to the Mets on Wednesday.

The outfielder drove in two runs on the night, and his three-hit night raised his season line to .271/.300/.542. He's been relegated to part-time duty, but with the injury to Curtis Granderson and his respectable line he could start seeing more at-bats in the near future.
Wed, May 29, 2013 11:21:00 PM

Yankees recalled OF Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Boesch will replace Curtis Granderson on the active roster. He batted just .209 with a .244 on-base percentage through 20 games with the Yankees prior to being sent down earlier this month.
