Yankees release Russell Branyan


A back injury robbed Russell Branyan of having a chance at making the team out of spring training. Raul Ibanez filled the role Branyan would have played with the Yankees and he never got a chance despite hitting .311/.444/.656 in 153 plate appearances in the minors.
