The New York Yankees placed left-hander Damaso Marte on the disabled list and recalled lefty Boone Logan from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to replace him.

Marte has appeared in 30 games mainly as a lefty specialist in middle relief, pitching 17 2/3 innings with a 4.08 ERA and 12 strikeouts. Logan has pitched 18 1/3 innings for the Yankees, with a 3.93 ERA, 12 walks and 13 K's. He will fill Marte's role as the only left-hander in the Yankees' bullpen.
