Yankees recall Logan, Marte to the DLBy
The Yankees have recalled lefty reliever Boone Logan from Triple-A today, taking the place of Damaso Marte, who was placed on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation. His shoulder started barking in Seattle, and he will begin a shoulder strengthening program. The Rays have some dangerous lefties in their lineup with Carl Crawford, John Jaso, Carlos Pena, and Matt Joyce, so it’s understandable why Joe Girardi would want another southpaw during Marte’s absence.
Meanwhile, Girardi indicated during his pre-game press conference that he would “do what’s best for the team” in the 8th inning, and that his players are going to have to “earn their roles.” Doesn’t exactly sound like a ringing endorsement of Joba Chamberlain, does it?
