Yankees Decline Marte’s Option

The Yankees announced today that they have declined Damaso Marte‘s ’09 option. Yesterday we learned that the Yankees were seeking to sign Marte to an extension.  Marte is a Type A free agent, so figure on at least an offer of arbitration.

The option was for $6MM and was bought out for $250K.
