Sherman: Yankees have no interest in bringing Damaso Marte back


Via Joel Sherman, the Yankees don’t have any interest in bringing the still unemployed Damaso Marte back to the organization. This might sound obvious, but the Yankees love their lefty relievers and he can be had on a minor deal now following his various shoulder problems over the last few seasons. Southpaws Cesar Cabral, Mike O’Connor, and Clay Rapada are all in the fold, and at some point enough is enough. We’ll always have the 2009 playoffs, Damaso.

  1. Are they sure they don’t want to bring him back on a two-year 8 million dollar contract?

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      We have a budget. The role of the lefty that won’t pitch is already taken and another would be a luxury. They’re probably tempted but there’s no room.

  2. Paul VuvuZuvella says:

    Hahah. First day of Spring Training and this passes as news??

  3. Cy Pettitte says:

    no he’ll go to the Red Sox and be a super effective LOOGY.

  4. MannyGeee says:

    IN other not-obvious news: CCs ‘hefty’, HUghes dresses like a teenaged douche, and Jeter has an affinity for the ladies.

    seriously, this was a waste of cyber ink, thanks for that Joel Sherman

    This is the kind of story a reporter (i.e. Sherman) reports as ‘news’ to justify that they’re ‘working’ and should be retained on payroll.

    In other news the sun is the center of our solar system

  7. BigDavey88 says:

    I for one am happy to know that Demaso Marte will not be returning.

  8. 2009 World Series MVP runner-up!

    Ninja Cashman, as he is often described by the Kool Aid drinkers on this blog, with another absolute stealth maneuver by deciding to not give Marte the time of day. Understandable though because he needs to keep a slot free for Mitre

  10. Needed Pitching says:

    But are they interested in bringing Kei Igawa back?????

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  11. Robinson Tilapia says:

    Wayne Franklin and Billy Traber still live.

  12. Dave M says:

    Now that is a shocker!

  13. Grover says:

    Keeping an eye on Josh Romanski. This kid is better than the metrics indicate.
