When the Detroit Tigers released Brennan Boesch on March 13 the Yankees quickly scooped him up two days later to help fill out an injury plagued roster. It was a low risk/high reward move considering Boesch was only 28 and showed very good power with the Tigers. Today it was the Yankees turn to release Boesch to free up room on the 40-man roster for Brent Lillibridge.
Unfortunately, things did not work out the way the Yankees or Boesch wanted. His playing time was limited, though he produced decent stats given the chance. He was demoted to Scranton on June 3 and left a game two days later with a strained shoulder. He was placed on the minor league DL and hasn't been able to play since.
As long as his shoulder is not seriously injured he'll find a taker somewhere.
