The New York Yankees placed Curtis Granderson on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday, one day after the outfielder suffered a fracture in his left hand. In a corresponding move, the Yankees recalled Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Granderson was hit by a Cesar Ramos pitch in the fifth inning of the Yankees' 9-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday. Granderson stayed in the game long enough to score on Jayson Nix's bases-loaded walk, but did not return to the field for the bottom half of the inning.
Granderson played in just eight games this season after missing the first 38 with a fractured forearm, a result of being hit-by-pitch during spring training. The 32-year-old All-Star hit .250/.323/.393 with a home run in 32 plate appearances.
Boesch, 29, hit .209/.244/.419 in 20 games for the Yankees prior to being demoted on May 14, the same day Granderson completed his previous DL stint. Boesch hit .179/.343/.214 in seven minor league games.
