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

Angels designated OF Brennan Boesch for assignment.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
Sun, Mar 2, 2014 10:21:00 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.
Tue, Jan 28, 2014 06:26:00 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.
Fri, Jul 19, 2013 06:58:00 PM

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.
