Mets' Starling Marte: Records 11th steal
Marte went 1-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base in a 4-3 extra-inning win over the Cubs in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.
Marte was on the bench for the matinee, presumably to avoid him playing too much just two days removed from his return from a groin injury. The outfielder returned to his usual role in right field for the nightcap and picked up his third steal in 11 games in July. He's hit well this month, going 16-for-43 (.372), and he's maintained a strong .292/.343/.458 slash line with nine home runs, 41 RBI, 51 runs scored and 11 steals in 17 attempts this year. The fact that he's already making an impact on the basepaths suggests the groin injury shouldn't be a lingering concern going forward.... See More ... See Less

With the Mets holding a big lead late, Travis Jankowski played right field in the ninth inning to get Marte off his feet. The star outfielder is slashing .293/.343/.461 with nine home runs, 41 RBI, 51 runs scored and 10 stolen bases through 327 plate appearances, though he may be a bit cautious on the basepaths for a while to avoid aggravating the groin injury....

Mets' Starling Marte: Deemed day-to-day after MRI
Manager Buck Showalter said Sunday after the Mets' 2-0 extra-inning loss to the Marlins that Marte's MRI revealed nothing more than tightness in his left groin, and the outfielder is expected to return "in the near future," Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
The skipper suggested that a trip to the injured list won't be in play for Marte, who is day-to-day as the Mets prepare for a big three-game set in Atlanta that kicks off Monday.
