The New York Yankees placed outfielder Curtis Granderson on the 15-day day disabled with a fractured left pinkie.
Granderson was injured Friday night in the fifth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays when he was hit with a pitch by Cesar Ramos.
The Yankees recalled outfielder Brendan Boesch from Class AAA Scranton Wilkes-Barre to take Granderson's roster spot.
It is not known how long Granderson will be out. He will visit hand specialist Dr. Melvin Rosenwasser on Monday to find out if he needs surgery and how much time he will miss.
Teammate Alex Rodriguez missed more than a month with the same injury last season.
Granderson missed the first 38 games of this season with a broken right forearm. He returned May 14.
