The Yankees put some power back in their lineup Friday, signing outfielder Brennan Boesch to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million plus another $600,000 in incentives.

Boesch, 27, hit .240/.286/.372 last season in 132 games with the Tigers, hitting 12 home runs with 54 RBI. Detroit released him on Wednesday. With Curtis Granderson out until early May, Boesch is likely to occupy one of the corner outfield spots, though it’s unclear what the lefty-hitting outfielder will do once Granderson returns.

The Yankees have been looking for a righthanded hitter to serve as the fourth outfielder, as their starting three are all lefties. Boesch could also be viewed as insurance for injury-prone DH Travis Hafner, also a lefty hitter.
