Damaso Marte has been away from the team for nearly all of the season with arm troubles. Now, he finally might be close to a return.
He completed his second rehab outing with the GCL Yankees yesterday.

I am sure the Yankees will be taking it slow with Marte, as he seems to be very delicate and the the Yankees’ bullpen has been as good as ever recently.
If Marte ever gets right, he would supply the Yankees with a second left arm out of the pen — joining Phil Coke — and could provide the second half boost they need.
