    granderson getty wide

    After missing the first 38 games of the season with a fractured forearm Curtis Granderson is off the disabled list and in the Yankees’ lineup for tonight’s game against the Mariners, playing left field and batting cleanup. Granderson went 8-for-20 (.400) with one homer on a brief minor-league rehab assignment, notching at least one hit…

  6. Yankees demote Brennan Boesch to Triple-A

    May 13, 2013, 3:45 PM EST

    New York Yankees v Colorado Rockies

    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…

  7. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 29, 2013, 5:40 AM EST

    Russell Martin

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 0: Two homers for Russell Martin and a strong start from Jeff Locke. The Pirates — the Pittsburgh Pirates — are in first place in the National League Central. This goes with the Royals being in first place in the AL Central. I predicted each of these teams would be better this…

  8. Indians’ Carlos Carrasco returns from suspension, gets ejected

    Apr 9, 2013, 8:43 PM EST

    Kevin Youkilis

    Carlos Carrasco opened the 2013 season serving a six-game suspension he received for intentionally drilling Kansas City’s Billy Butler in 2011. Now he could well be looking at another one after seemingly intentionally drilling Kevin Youkilis following a Robinson Cano homer in the fourth inning Tuesday. Immediately after Cano drove a ball out to left…

  9. Yankees release Juan Rivera, will keep Lyle Overbay

    Mar 28, 2013, 3:35 PM EST

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Los Angeles Dodgers

    It’s not a good sign when a team that’s wrecked by injuries and looking everywhere for lineup help decides you’re not worth keeping around, but that’s exactly what just happened to Juan Rivera. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Yankees have released Rivera, who signed a minor-league contract in late January. New York has…

  11. Ian Stewart to begin season on DL with quadriceps injury

    Mar 20, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    Ian Stewart

    Ian Stewart has been out since mid-February with a quadriceps injury and now the Cubs third baseman has been ruled out for Opening Day. This offseason the Cubs non-tendered the arbitration eligible Stewart and then re-signed him to a one-year, $2 million deal. Similar to what the Tigers did with Brennan Boesch last week, they…

  12. Samuel Deduno completes WBC breakthrough with title game victory

    Mar 19, 2013, 11:37 PM EST

    Samuel Deduno

    Yan Gomes, the only major leaguer Brazil has ever produced, opted out of the World Baseball Classic to help his chances of making the Indians. He won’t. Melky Mesa, a veteran minor leaguer in the Yankees system, was all set to be part of the Dominican Republic’s left-field committee. Then Curtis Granderson got hurt. Presented…

  13. Yankees release outfielder Matt Diaz

    Mar 17, 2013, 12:54 PM EST

    matt diaz ap

    As first reported by the YES Network, the Yankees have officially cut ties with outfielder Matt Diaz, who was in camp this spring on a minor league contract. Diaz went 6-for-30 (.200/.250/.200) this year in the Grapefruit League, netting zero extra-base hits. The 35-year-old will hope to catch on with a new team that is…

  14. The Yankees sign Brennan Boesch

    Mar 15, 2013, 5:40 PM EST

    brennan boesch getty

    The Tigers released Brennan Boesch on Wednesday. I told everyone who would listen that I’d be shocked if he wasn’t playing for a New York team — either one — by the close of business Thursday. I was only a day off, it seems, as the Yankees have just signed him to a a major…

  15. Tigers release Brennan Boesch, save $1.9 million

    boesch getty

    Detroit has released outfielder Brennan Boesch, who averaged 127 games and 496 plate appearances per season for the Tigers during the past three years. Back in January the Tigers and Boesch avoided arbitration with a one-year, $2.3 million deal, but by releasing him now Detroit is only on the book for one-sixth of that salary.…

  16. Alfonso Soriano as a Granderson replacement seems far-fetched

    Feb 24, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Curtis Granderson

    The silver lining about a 10-week injury to Curtis Granderson: Opening Day is still more than a month away. Losing Granderson’s power is far from an ideal way for the Yankees to start the spring, but it’s hardly a season-wrecker either. And while there might be some concern over whether Granderson will regain his power…

  17. Brennan Boesch day-to-day after tweaking right oblique

    Feb 17, 2013, 4:25 PM EST

    boesch getty

    Noah Trister of the Associated Press reports that Tigers outfielder Brennan Boesch tweaked a right oblique muscle on Saturday while swinging a bat. He was held out of workouts on Sunday and might not be ready for action again until later this week. Boesch agreed to a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Tigers back…

  18. Lloyd McClendon thinks he fixed Brennan Boesch’s swing

    Feb 11, 2013, 10:47 AM EST

    Brennan Boesch

    Brennan Boesch was one of the worst regulars in baseball last season, hitting .240 with a .659 OPS in 503 plate appearances for the Tigers, and heads into this season projected to be a bench player. However, hitting coach Lloyd McClendon is optimistic that he fixed Boesch’s swing during the offseason, telling Tom Gage of…

  19. Arbitration avoidance roundup: Loose ends

    arbitration

    By noon we’d already done a dozen posts about players and teams avoiding arbitration ahead of today’s deadline, so something had to give. We’ll keep posting the more noteworthy cases, but here’s a roundup of the not-so-noteworthy ones that will be updated throughout the day. • Gaby Sanchez and the Pirates: $1.75 million • Antonio…

  20. Mariners have had trade talks for Tigers’ Brennan Boesch

    Dec 12, 2012, 7:39 PM EST

    brennan boesch getty

    The Mariners are hoping to land a top free agent outfielder like Josh Hamilton or Nick Swisher. If that doesn’t happen they do have other avenues. According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, the M’s have had “preliminary discussions” with the Tigers about a Brennan Boesch trade. “No such move is close,” writes Morosi, but that…

  21. The Tigers might be in the market for another outfielder

    Nov 17, 2012, 1:10 PM EST

    Torii Hunter AP

    The Tigers finalized a two-year, $26 million contract with Torii Hunter yesterday, but they might not be done shopping for outfielders. While Hunter is expected to be the regular right fielder next season, left field isn’t nearly as settled. The most likely approach is a platoon, but Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski told Jason Beck…

  22. The case against Torii Hunter helping the Tigers

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:21 PM EST

    Torii Hunter

    It’s not hard to see why the Tigers were regular-season disappointments in 2012; the bottom half of the lineup, which was so productive the year before, stumbled badly: OPS by lineup spot, from 2011 to 2012 No. 5:  .797 to .671 No. 6: .842 to .654 No. 7: .720 to .700 No. 8: .768 to…

  23. Kittens come up short again in 6-1 loss to White Sox

    Sep 10, 2012, 11:40 PM EST

    Austin Jackson

    Going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position isn’t a recipe for success. Since sweeping the White Sox from Aug. 31-Sept. 2, the Tigers have been tamed at the plate: Sept. 3: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 4: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 5: Won 7-1 vs. Clev Sept. 7: Lost 2-3 at LAA Sept. 8:…

  24. Dead deal: Tigers no longer working on landing Alfonso Soriano from Cubs

    Jul 31, 2012, 3:27 PM EST

    Alfonso Soriano

    3:25 p.m. EDT update: USATODAY’s Bob Nightengale reports that Soriano won’ t be moved before the deadline. Of course, with his contract, he’ll clear waivers and could be dealt afterwards. CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler confirms that “Tigers people say they are not getting Soriano.” /// Alfonso Soriano wasn’t interested in going to San Francisco. What…

  25. Miguel Cabrera hits two bombs to reach 300 homers

    Jul 22, 2012, 6:08 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera took Phil Humber deep twice Sunday to reach 300 career homers and help the Tigers top the White Sox 6-4. Cabrera’s second homer made him the second Venezuelan to reach 300 career homers. The first was Andres Galarraga, who finished his career with 399. Quintin Berry and Brennan Boesch also homered for Detroit…
