Pirates' Starling Marte an unlikely option to hit cleanup
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Starling Marte isn't your prototypical cleanup hitter. 

Sure, he can produce runs for the Pirates but he's not exactly someone that's going to come to the plate with the intention of hitting a bomb with runners on. But it's his versatility that caused manager Clint Hurdle to try Marte out at the four hole. 

He laid down a bunt on Sunday against the Mets, although he was unable to beat it out. But then later in the game he hit a three-run homer.

"He wasn't as warm and fuzzy about it as I was. And rightfully so," Hurdle said about slotting Marte fourth in the lineup, via MLB.com. "He's a young guy. He's got some experience. He did some good things [batting fifth], and then your whacked-out manager says, 'Hey, by the way, let's just try this. Let's throw you in the four-spot, kid, and let's roll.' I told him why.

Pirates OF Starling Marte goes 1 for 5 with HR in win
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Starling Marte only recorded one hit against the Mets but made sure it counted in a big way. 

In Sunday afternoon's 9-1 victory, Marte hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning. The homer also scored Gregory Polanco and Andrew McCutchen. 

After the game, McCutchen said it was only a matter of time before Marte made someone pay. 

"Pick your poison. That's the way I look at it," McCutchen said, via MLB.com. "I guess they felt since Marte hadn't been swinging the bat the past few games, they could get him out. Nah, you can't do that either."

Marte finished 1 for 5 with two strikeouts. He's now slashing .278/.326/.513. 

Before the homer, Marte had gone 11 at-bats without a hit.

Pirates OF Starling Marte ripped for lazy play on Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Starling Marte was given a stern talking to on Wednesday after making a "lazy" play in Tuesday's game against the Twins, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune

Manager Clint Hurdle considered benching Marte on Wednesday, but kept him in the lineup.

"We talked about a few things," Hurdle said. "So I think we have a very good understanding now of where we're going."

Marte had a slow reaction to a single in the outfield, allowing Brian Dozier to score from first base.

"(Marte) was kind of lackadaisical, to pick it up and just kind of throw it in," Dozier said. "You've got the bases loaded and you're hoping to get the out and get out of the jam, and then three runs (score). That's a backbreaker."

Hurdle couldn't believe what he saw.

"It was a very disappointing play," Hurdle said. "I shared my thoughts with the player, personally. It wasn't the first time I've shared my thoughts with Starling or any of the players when things have happened that we don't believe should happen to us. You've got to be ready every pitch. You've got to be ready to play. You've got to have an awareness of the game."

Pirates OF Starling Marte hits 3-run HR in win
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Starling Marte hit a three-run homer in the third inning of Monday night's 4-3 win over the Phillies. 

Marte hit his home run off of Jerome Williams to center field on a 1-2 pitch. He did a great job of hanging around in the at-bat, fouling off four pitches. For Marte, that's his eighth home run of the season. 

"He's doing a real good job for us there. He's still working on some things, figuring things out. He's aggressive and dangerous," Hurdle said to MLB.com. "He turned out to be dangerous tonight. He pushed through that at-bat, fouled off some balls, then jumped on a mistake. It was a big swing of the bat for us."

Marte has at least recorded one hit in seven of his past 10 games. 

"I do feel very comfortable where I am now," Marte said. "I'm more focused. More chance to drive in runs. I'm very comfortable there."

Marte finished Monday's game 1 for 4 and is now hitting .277/.325/.518.
