MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees recently added free agent Brennan Boesch
to bolster the competition in the outfield, and the former Detroit Tigers outfielder
likely isn’t the last veteran general manager Brian Cashman looks at before the
start of the regular season, according to Dan Martin of The New York Post.
“Opening Day’s not till a ways down the line. I’m keeping my
eyes open elsewhere. Our guys are competing for a spot, and there are other
guys not even wearing this Yankee uniform right now that might be competing for
a spot that we’re watching elsewhere.”
The Yankees are preparing to enter the year with three
regulars sidelined due to injuries; Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Mark
Teixeira. Boesch was added to the mix of outfielders to help fill in for
Granderson, and the Yankees still figure to be in the market for a corner
infielder, considering Teixeira’s injury.
New York has already reached out to veteran corner
infielders – including Scott Rolen, Derrek Lee and even Chipper Jones. They
will likely increase their search to include out-of-option players and others
at risk of not breaking camp with their current clubs as Opening Day
