Marte (hamstring) will play center field in a four-inning simulated game Friday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. Marte had hoped that he'd be able to begin a rehab assignment Thursday or Friday, but he'll instead see game action in a sim game. If his appearance in the simulated game goes well, the 27-year-old could begin a rehab assignment in the near future.
Marte (hamstring) hopes to begin a rehab assignment Thursday or Friday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. The 27-year-old has been on the shelf for over a month with the hamstring strain, so it's not much of a surprise he'll head to the minors to get back up to game speed before being activated. Marte could return sometime next week if he does begin the rehab stint Thursday or Friday.
Marte (hamstring) will rejoin the Diamondbacks for an assessment Monday or Tuesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. The purpose of the evaluation is to determine how close Marte is to beginning a potential minor-league rehabilitation assignment. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo is "strongly in favor" of Marte playing games in the minors prior to returning from the injured list. Marte has been out since April 7.
Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Marte (hamstring) is "very close" to beginning a rehab assignment, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Marte is currently at the alternate training facility at Salt River Fields and has performed running drills. At this point, he's mostly running straight ahead with "some arcs and some curves and some change of direction."
Marte (hamstring) will begin taking at-bats during games at Arizona's alternate site, NIck Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. The plan is to have Marte lightly jog out of the batter's box before ramping up his intensity. Manager Torey Lovullo did not have an update on where Marte was in his running progression.
