TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The New York Yankees have agreed to terms on a one-year major league contract with outfielder Brennan Boesch.
The team announced the move on Friday night.
The 27-year old Boesch hit .240 with 12 home runs and 54 RBIs in 132 games with Detroit last season. He was released by the Tigers on Wednesday. New York will be without outfielder Curtis Granderson until at least May due to a broken right forearm. He was hit by a pitch from Toronto's J.A. Happ on Feb. 24.
To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees placed right-hander Michael Pineda on the 60-day disabled list. The pitcher could return in June following right shoulder surgery last year.
