    Marte (personal) was reinstated from the bereavement list and is starting the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Marte had been on the bereavement list since Monday, but he'll rejoin the team prior to Saturday's twin bill. He's starting in right field and batting second during the matinee.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Set for activation Friday

    Marte (personal) will be activated from the bereavement list prior to Friday's game in Colorado, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    DiComo previously reported Wednesday that Marte could possibly rejoin the team ahead of Thursday's series finale with the Cardinals, but the outfielder's flight to New York wasn't early enough for him to arrive at the ballpark prior to the game's 1:10 pm. ET start time. As a result, the Mets will wait a day to make a roster move, but once activated, Marte should immediately reclaim an everyday role in the outfield. Prior to being placed on the bereavement list Monday, Marte slashed .266/.311/.403 with three home runs and five stolen bases across 148 plate appearances in his first season with the Mets.

    Marte (personal) will rejoin the Mets on Thursday and could be activated from the bereavement list ahead of the team's series finale with the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The Mets placed Marte on the bereavement list Monday after the outfielder elected to leave the team to be with his family following the passing of his grandmother.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Placed on bereavement list

    The Mets placed Marte on the bereavement list Monday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Notches fifth steal

    Marte went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple and a stolen base Saturday in a 5-4 win against the Mariners.

    Marte scored the first run of the game after tripling with one out in the first inning, and he produced two more base knocks for his third three-hit performance of the campaign. The outfielder also swiped second base in the seventh inning for his first steal since April 24. Marte led the majors with 47 thefts last season, so his production in that area thus far has been somewhat disappointing. He's been caught four times in nine attempts and hasn't had as many chances to run -- his current .315 on-base percentage is his lowest mark since his rookie season.
