    • The Marlins informed Marte (hand) on Wednesday that they will exercise his $12.5 million team option for 2021, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Team CEO Derek Jeter told the media earlier this month that he hoped to retain Marte through the upcoming season, so the Marlins' decision to pick up the outfielder's affordable option comes as little surprise. Though he was sidelined for the Marlins' NLDS loss to the Braves after fracturing his left hand, Marte is expected to be back to full strength well in advance of spring training. Between his stops in Arizona and Miami in 2020, the 32-year-old proved he was still a capable bat near the top of the lineup, slashing .281/.340/.430 with six home runs and 10 stolen bases over 61 games.

    • Marte (hand) will not be on the Marlins' roster for the NLDS against the Braves, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports. Marte broke his hand after getting hit by a pitch in Game 1 of the Wild Card Round against the Cubs. He remained on the roster for Game 2 as a potential pinch runner, but the fracture will keep him from being able to hit in the near future, so he'll be dropped from the roster for the next series. He isn't expected to require surgery, however, so he could have a shot to return for the NLCS should the Marlins advance past Atlanta.

    • Manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that the Marlins haven't made any determination on the status of Marte (hand) for this week's NLDS matchup with the Braves, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Marte fractured his left hand in the Marlins' postseason opener against the Cubs on Sept. 30 and sat out the series-clinching win two days later. Despite the severity of his injury, Marte apparently won't require surgery to address the fractured hand, leaving the door open for him to play for the rest of the Marlins' playoff run. When he'll be ready to hit again is more of a question mark, so even if Marte is included on the NLDS roster, he may largely be limited to pinch running and defensive duty.

    • Marte (hand) remains on the bench Friday for the rescheduled Game 2 of the Wild Card Series against the Cubs, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports. It would be a surprise to see Marte in the lineup any time soon, as he fractured his pinky after getting hit by a pitch Wednesday. He was reportedly going to be available for Game 2 off the bench when it was originally scheduled to take place Thursday, likely just to pinch run or perhaps play the field. That's presumably still the case Friday. Magneuris Sierra will play center field in his absence.

    • Marte (hand) isn't in the lineup for Game 2 of the Wild Card Series against the Cubs but could be available off the bench in some capacity, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports. Marte visited a hand specialist Thursday, who confirmed that he suffered small fracture at the base of his pinky after getting hit by a pitch in Game 1. The issue is apparently minor enough that he can attempt to play through it, though he'll be on the bench Thursday, with Magneuris Sierra getting the start in center field.
