Minor Moves: Victor Marte

Today's minor moves roundup…

  • The Cardinals have outrighted right-hander Victor Marte to Triple-A after he cleared waivers, according to MLBDailyDish's Chris Cotillo (Twitter link). Marte was designated for assignment last week after the Cards claimed Joey Butler off waivers from the Rangers. The 32-year-old Marte posted a 4.98 ERA with 7.9 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 in 43 1/3 relief innings with the Cards from 2012-13. Those numbers are similar to the 4.94 ERA, 9.1 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9 he posted in 54 2/3 innings at Triple-A this season.
  • Earlier today, the Cubs outrighted six players, including outfielder Darnell McDonald and right-hander Rafael Dolis, who briefly served as the Cubs' closer in 2012.
  • With Marte's outright, Henry Blanco of the Mariners and Jeff Baker of the Rangers are the only players currently in DFA limbo, as shown in MLBTR's DFA Tracker.
