Marte went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday. Win or lose, Marte continues to thrive on an individual basis on the majority of days. Sunday, the veteran outfielder extended his hitting streak to six games with his third multi-hit effort in the last four contests. In a testament to his status as one of the most elite sources of balanced fantasy production in all of baseball, Marte now boasts a .356/.383/.600 slash line with three doubles, a triple, two home runs, six RBI, a walk, a hit-by-pitch, three stolen bases and 12 runs over his last 11 games.
Marte went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Saturday's 8-6 loss to the Rangers. Marte got the Athletics on the board early with a solo homer off Texas starter Wes Benjamin.

He'll command a pretty penny in free agency this winter.
Marte went 3-for-5 with a triple, two runs and two RBI in Friday's 10-5 win over the Rangers. Marte knocked in a run with a second-inning single and tripled two frames later to notch another RBI. The three-hit effort pushed his average to .351 over his past nine games, during which he has scored 10 runs and collected five extra-base hits.

The red-hot veteran has recorded a double, Friday's three-bagger, three RBI, two stolen bases and three runs in that sample, which simply represents an extension of the jaw-dropping tear he's been on since joining the Athletics in late July. Marte's season slash line is now up to .321/.395/.464 following Friday's prolific night, with the first two figures qualifying as career bests.
