Marte started at first base Thursday, scoring a run after getting hit by a pitch in his lone at-bat in a win over Seattle.

The 27-year-old received his second consecutive start against a southpaw, but he was subbed out for Luis Valbuena after Mariners starter James Paxton (back) exited the contest in the first inning. Marte has been exclusively deployed against left-handed starters on days where Shohei Ohtani sits since returning from the disabled list July 5. Marte is slashing .242/.296/.408 in 91 plate appearances this season, and he won't move the fantasy needle in his limited role.
