Marte strikes out three in rehab outing
OAKLAND -- The first results on Tigers reliever Luis Marte's rehab stint were positive, albeit at a lower level in the Minor Leagues.

The right-hander struck out three of the four batters he faced, allowing a hit to the other, in his inning of work in an extended Spring Training game on Saturday against the Braves.

Marte threw 15 pitches in the inning. It marked his first game action since the Tigers' Spring Training finale, when he strained his left hamstring. Marte had made Detroit's Opening Day roster at that point, but instead opened the season on the 15-day disabled list.

Marte is expected to continue a slow road back to pitching. The extended Spring Training outings do not count against a formal rehab assignment, so he'll have 30 days once he is sent out to a higher level in the farm system.
