      Pirates' Starling Marte: Sitting Tuesday

      Marte is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs. Marte continues to hit the ball well in the early portion of the season, as he has a .327/.379/.505 slash line, but he'll be given a day off Tuesday. Gregory Polanco will slide over to left field in his absence, while Matt Joyce is drawing the start in right.

      Pirates' Starling Marte: Plays all 11 innings Sunday

      Marte went 2-for-5 with an RBI Sunday, lifting his batting average to .327. The hand injury he suffered Saturday wasn't enough to keep him from the lineup. Marte continues to play with reckless abandon, diving for a sinking liner in left field, only to see the ball skirt under his glove for a late-inning triple. The outfielder has four singles in 16 career at-bats against Monday starter Jason Hammel.

      Pirates' Starling Marte: Will start Sunday

      Marte (hand) will start in left field and bat cleanup Sunday against the Reds. Marte took a pitch to the hand in Saturday's game, but convinced the Pirates' trainer to let him remain in the contest. The outfielder actually reached base on two occasions when he was hit by pitches Saturday, but saw his five-game hitting streak come to an end. With no lingering complications to the hand, it looks like Marte is a safe activation heading into the coming week.

      Marte was hit by a pitch on his hand Saturday, though he stayed in the contest. He was treated by the team's trainer for several minutes after getting hit. Marte's availability for Sunday is not yet known. He went 0-for-3 Saturday, ending a five-game hitting streak (10-for-24).

      Pirates' Starling Marte: Not in lineup Thursday

      Marte is not in the lineup Thursday against the Rockies, Stephen Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Marte will get a rare day off, as the Pirates go with an outfield of Matt Joyce in left, Andrew McCutchen in center and Gregory Polanco in right. Expect Marte to return to the lineup for Friday's series-opener against the Reds back in Pittsburgh.

      Pirates' Starling Marte: Hits tape-measure shot Tuesday

      Marte hit his third homer -- and first since April 12 -- in Tuesday's 9-4 win over Colorado on Tuesday. It wasn't looking good for Marte early on. He struck out in each of his first three at-bats while Andrew McCutchen homered in his first three plate appearances. Marte is feeding off of a .391 BABIP for his .322 batting average, but keep in mind that his career BABIP (.354) is higher than most players.

      Pirates' Starling Marte: Primed for Tuesday production

      Marte, who stole his NL-leading sixth base Monday, is 4-for-9 with a triple against Tuesday starter Jorge De La Rosa. He went 13-for-20 in Colorado during a four-game series in September and currently has five hits in his last 10 at-bats. Marte will slide back over to left field after starting in center field Monday for the resting Andrew McCutchen.

      Pirates' Starling Marte: Collects four hits versus Arizona

      Marte went 4-for-6 with a double, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk in Sunday's win over Arizona. The outfielder recorded his first four-hit game of the season, and he nearly won the game for his team with a 12th inning RBI before Arizona forced another additional frame. Marte is off to an excellent start to the season, as he has a 0.907 OPS and 11 RBI to go along with five steals. He seems to have settled into the cleanup spot in the lineup and could set a new career-high in RBI this season if he continues to hit at this rate.

      Pirates' Starling Marte: Returns to lineup Tuesday

      Marte (hand) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. The 27-year-old lobbied to play Sunday despite some lingering soreness in his right hand, but the Pirates decided to play it safe and hold Marte out of the series finale against Milwaukee. He was hit by a pitch during Saturday's game. With Monday's team off day, Marte has essentially had two days to rest up. Hopefully it will be a non-issue moving forward.

      Pirates' Starling Marte: Sees outfield time Sunday

      Marte (hand) served as a defensive replacement Sunday, playing one inning in left field and one in center field. He didn't bat at all, but the Bucs probably wouldn't have played him if they were afraid of him further damaging his right hand. While there's always the chance of a setback before Tuesday's tilt in San Diego, Marte appears ready to return against the Padres.
