Brennan Boesch, who signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Yankees after being released by the Tigers in the middle of spring training, has been demoted to Triple-A.

Boesch hit just .205 with two homers and a .680 OPS in 19 games for the Yankees, which is pretty similar to his underwhelming production for the Tigers last season. His demotion clears the way for Curtis Granderson to return from the disabled list, which is expected to happen in time for tomorrow’s game.

    Looks like Garnderson is ready. Here comes the Yankee firepower.

      Can’t wait for the trade deadline, we can get some more great ex-Jays to join Wells and Overbay. We can trade Garner for Bastista,and Have Jensen join the bullpen.Bring on |Edwin too.It’s just like the good old days when the Yankees got Roger Maris from Kansas City(yankees’s unoffical minor league team )

    Hope its Granderson but more likely its for David Adams.

    I like Boesch, but he might be done.

    So they kept Francisco rather than Boesch.

      Wow, will all those Yankees apologists be disappointed.

      pc… go figure, for Gods sake they play this guy ( Boesch ) once a week or pinch hit him and expect him to hit .300. I hear you about Francisco, he can’t hit his ass with both hands, he should have been cut a month ago.

      I’m thinking that has to do with lack of righthanders in the outfield. Francisco and Boesch have been equally bad at the plate.

      Francisco is playing in the second half of the double header. I wouldn’t be shocked if he was DFA’d to clear room for Adams to come up along with Granderson.

      • pisano - May 13, 2013 at 6:27 PM

        Kevin s. ….. One can only hope he’s DFA’d

    • surefooted1 - May 13, 2013 at 11:26 PM

      David Adams is coming on the 15th, his first day available to be up. Don’t worry, Francisco will have at most one more day in the Bronx.

    • bigharold - May 14, 2013 at 12:22 AM

      I think they sent Boesch down. When the time comes they’re likely going to DFA Francisco. Right now he’s a RH bat.

    Now if only Ben Francisco would follow him.

    Well that’s one shoe that dropped…now just waiting for the other. One thing I don’t get is why didn’t they pull Wang for the Double Header instead of Nuno.

    • cackalackyank - May 13, 2013 at 7:20 PM

      …and yes I see my poor choice of words.

    • uyf1950 - May 13, 2013 at 7:50 PM

      Wang isn’t on the 40 man roster. Nuno was already on the 25 man active roster.

      • cackalackyank - May 13, 2013 at 7:51 PM

        Thanks, uyf.
