Marte optioned; Perez recalled

According to  The Tribe Report on MVN Andy Marte was optioned to Buffalo today in favor of Rafael Perez.  I can't find any confirmation of this on official sites yet. Apparently they're looking to go short on the bench but long in the pen.  I'm not sure if this is a bigger indictment of the perceived value of Marte or worries about the team's pitching going into a tough series with Boston.  We really didn't burn the pen out lately and outside of JoBo, everyone should be pretty much available. Maybe I'm missing something, but since Marte can't be recalled for 10 days, I'd bet that Fransisco or Guitierez will get the call.  I feel for Marte. Update [2007-5-28 15:3:55 by mjmarble]: Here's the confirmation from ESPN wire services.
