After Brett Gardner was ejected, Colin Curtis came off the bench to hit his first career homer Wednesday versus the Angels.

It was a three-run homer off Scot Shields. Curtis has limited power, but he is 7-for-27 with seven RBI in 27 at-bats since joining the Yankees a month ago. He's doing his best to show GM Brian Cashman that there's no need for him to go out and get a veteran reserve outfielder at the deadline.

Yankees purchased the contract of OF Colin Curtis from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The team has yet to announce a corresponding roster move. Curtis, 25, was batting .280/.357/.368 over 126 at-bats at the Triple-A level this season. Though he has yet to homer or steal a base this year, he possesses a fair amount of power and speed. Most importantly to the Yankees, he is capable of playing all three outfield positions.
