Marte’s Triple-A tour ends
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman relayed Saturday that left-hander Damaso Marte has concluded his 30-day rehab assignment at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but has been excused for personal reasons that are not injury-related.
In other words, don’t expect to see him on a big league mound anytime soon. The Yankees never saw the consistency of Marte’s fastball, which touched 93 mph at times at Triple-A but also clocked in the mid-80s. Phil Coke will likely finish up the year as the Yankees’ only left-handed reliever.
