It didn’t take long for Brennan Boesch to find a new home. Two days after being released by the Tigers, Boesch has signed a major league deal with the Yankees, according to CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman. The Yankees are in desperate need of some reinforcements, and Boesch will give them a left-handed hitting outfielder with a reputation of being a streaky hitter. Given the thin market, though, Boesch seems like a logical choice for the Bronx Bombers, especially since the 27-year-old has enjoyed at least some major league success in the past.

Bouncing Back: Alex Avila

Like a lot of fantasy players, I’ll be waiting on drafting a catcher again this year. Catchers and closers are usually where I want to spend my last few picks or dollars, so I need to squeeze as much value out of them as I possibly can, hoping to hit big on a player that could just as likely end up on the wire in a month. There are a number of catchers who fall in this category...
