Bosch on tonight’s 60 Minutes (plus Yankees add option at third base)

First, in case you haven’t heard, tonight’s 60 Minutes includes an interview with Biogenesis chief Anthony Bosch, who says he personally injected Alex Rodriguez with banned substances several times. Should be a must-see for anyone who’s not completely burned out on the whole A-Rod saga. 60 Minutes airs at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

Second, the Yankees have added another option to help fill the hole at third base, agreeing to a minor league deal with Scott Sizemore. The 29 year old has big league experience at second and third, but his career .881 Triple-A OPS hasn’t fully translated in the majors — he’s hit .238/.328/.381 in the big leagues — but he’sĀ been pretty good against lefties, hitting .272/.357/.422. Could be a legitimate platoon option, or simply minor league depth.

Perhaps more important: Ken Rosenthal hears that the Yankees have decided not to offer another major-league deal to a free agent infielder. Could have a lot to do with the options still available. Aside from Stephen Drew — who may prefer a guaranteed shortstop job — the rest of the free agent infielders bring considerable uncertainty, and eventually a minor league deal might be enough to sign one of them. Seems to fit with Mark Feinsand’s report late last night that Mark Reynolds only has a minor-league offer on the table from the Yankees.
