Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: MRI scheduled

Marte (back) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday and won't play in the Diamondbacks' series finale against the Marlins later in the day, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Marte was pulled from Tuesday's 12-6 loss with what was described as back stiffness. The Diamondbacks are technically still in the hunt for a postseason berth, but the team faces long odds to come away with one of the National League's two wild-card spots. As such, the organization may not want to push a valuable asset like Marte, who has enjoyed a breakout campaign.
