MLB notebook: Yankees' Granderson goes on DL again
The Yankees put outfielder Curtis Granderson on the 15-day disabled list with a broken knuckle on his left pinky finger and recalled outfielder Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Granderson was hit by Cesar Ramos' pitch in the fifth inning of Friday night's 9-4 win over the Rays.
Although no official timeline for how long Granderson will be sidelined has been announced, manager Joe Girardi indicated it could be a minimum of four weeks.
Granderson missed the first 38 games this season with a broken right forearm, the result of a hit by pitch in his first at-bat at spring training.
The Yankees have been hit hard by injuries this year. Mark Teixeira, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Andy Pettitte and Kevin Youkilis are among those on the disabled list.
