ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The New York 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 victory against the Rays. Although no official timeline for how long Granderson will be sidelined was announced, Manager Joe Girardi indicated it could be a minimum of four weeks.

“I think the feelings that we have right now, there’s sadness for Curtis,” Girardi said.

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.

 

BREWERS: Manager Ron Roenicke said closer Jim Henderson is expected to be out “a while” with a pulled hamstring.

Henderson was injured Friday night against the Pirates.

 

ORIOLES: Baltimore placed right-hander Pedro Strop on the 15-day disabled list with a strained lower back and recalled right-hander Steve Johnson from Triple-A Norfolk.

Strop is 0-2 with a 6.11 ERA in 22 games.

 

NATIONALS: Washington called up utility man Jeff Kobernus from Triple-A Syracuse and designated right-hander Yunesky Maya for assignment.

 

RANGERS: Texas acquired outfielder Joe Benson on a waiver claim from Minnesota and optioned him to Double-A Frisco.
