Baltimore manager Dave Trembley had a little fun at reliever Dennis Sarfate’s expense on Sunday, when he relayed the details of the right-hander’s recovery. Sarfate, who threw in a Minor League game on Saturday, was right back at Camden Yards Sunday.
“I try to send him out on a rehab and he won’t go,” quipped Trembley. “That guy just keeps showing up.”
Sarfate is expected to throw in another Minor League game on Tuesday and may take the rest of the month to work back to full strength. The veteran was originally sidelined with a circulatory condition and is working in the Minor Leagues at 93 mph, which is a shade better than his velocity earlier in the season and a bit below his peak pitch-speed.
