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.

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.

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.

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

Boesch was sporting a brutal .209 batting average and .244 on-base percentage through 20 games with the Yankees. He should get another chance later this year.

Brennan Boesch has been taking ground balls at first base.

Boesch hasn’t played the position since high school, but the Yankees want him comfortable enough at the position as another option beyond Lyle Overbay and Kevin Youkilis. "If I was horrible, I’d tell them, don’t even try," Boesch said. "But I feel like every day I get a little better and every day I feel like I can help the team if they need me over there soon enough."

Brennan Boesch (rib cage) doesn't believe his rib cage injury to be a concern.

"I wouldn't classify this as an injury," said the outfielder. It sounds like Boesch probably doesn't have an oblique injury, which is a relief since it surely would have kept him out Opening Day. The Yankees haven't provided an update on his status, but it appears to be a day-to-day situation.
Fri, Mar 22, 2013 03:35:00 PM

Brennan Boesch was scratched from Friday's lineup with a stiff left rib cage.

It was Boesch's right oblique that he tweaked earlier this spring when he was still with the Tigers. While it's good that it's not an aggravation of the previous injury, his status for Opening Day should probably be considered up in the air.

Brennan Boesch will make his Yankees' debut Saturday.

Boesch was signed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal after being released by the Tigers earlier this week. He should see the majority of his playing time in a left field platoon with Matt Diaz, but could also battle injury-prone Travis Hafner for some at-bats at the DH spot.
Sat, Mar 16, 2013 09:29:00 AM

Yankees signed OF Brennan Boesch to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported the agreement on Friday afternoon, and it has now been made official. Boesch struggled mightily in 2012 with the Tigers, but he's just a year removed from hitting .283/.341/.458 with 16 homers and 54 RBI in just 423 at-bats. His left-handed power should play well at Yankee Stadium.
