Damaso Marte activated

The Yankees have activated left-hander Damaso Marte and optioned infielder Ramiro Pena to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Joe Girardi said that he believes Marte will be used more situationally than Phil Coke, perhaps to come in and get one tough left-handed batter. He said that the Yankees could go with 13 pitchers until rosters expand Sept. 1.
