On Thursday, we wondered when Damaso Marte would return. His rehab began on July 16, meaning his 30 days are just about up. By my count, it was up last night, as today is Day 31. As Mike noted, Marte pitched another scoreless inning, striking out one while allowing two hits. Yet it doesn’t appear Marte will be back today. Tyler Kepner has a quote from Joe Girardi on the matter: “We’re not sure if he’s going to get there.” Marte still hasn’t gotten his velocity back up to 93, the apparent target, and apparently still has inflammation in his shoulder. So I guess it’s a shut down for now. Look for Marte to appear in a minor league game again sometime next week (I suppose).
