Tigers have decision to make on Marte's return

CLEVELAND -- The waiting game is on for the Tigers to decide on reliever Luis Marte following his three innings of one-hit ball Monday at Triple-A Toledo as part of his rehab stint.

Leyland had no news as to whether Marte would be available to rejoin the Tigers later in the week once he gets enough rest to throw again. The report, however, was positive.

"He was very good, got a little tired, but he didn't really show it pitching," Leyland said of the outing, which team president/general manager Dave Dombrowski watched in person.
