  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Sits in series finale

    Marte is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

    Marte will head to the bench for only the second time since he made his return from a hamstring injury June 21. Because the injury still inhibits his lateral movement in the infield, Marte has served exclusively as a designated hitter in his eight starts since returning to the lineup, going a collective 6-for-27 with a home run, nine walks, four runs and two RBI over those games. Cooper Hummel will serve as Arizona's DH in the series finale Sunday.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Knocks fifth homer

    Marte went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Saturday's 11-7 loss to the Rockies.

    Marte went 0-for-8 in his previous two games, and his homer Saturday was his first extra-base hit in eight contests since he returned from a hamstring injury. The 28-year-old is expected to remain as the designated hitter, as he's been kept out of the field since his return. The second baseman is slashing .264/.351/.424 with five homers, 24 RBI, 37 runs scored, four stolen bases and 23 doubles in 285 plate appearances. Given how cautious Arizona has been with the star infielder, it would be surprising to see him test his luck on the basepaths much in the near future.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Remains DH through weekend

    Marte will continue to serve as the designated hitter at least through the current series against the Rockies, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    The Diamondbacks are being extra cautious with Marte, who sustained a hamstring injury more than two weeks ago. He's since returned but served as the DH in seven games played. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo mentioned giving Marte a day off in the coming days.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: On base four times

    Marte went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Padres.

    Marte once again served as the designated hitter as he works his way back from a hamstring injury. He was never tested on the basepaths, scoring easily from second base on Buddy Kennedy's double in the seventh inning and walking home from third base when Carson Kelly was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the eighth. This was the fifth straight game in which Marte served as the DH, and he's 4-for-15 with eight walks during that stretch.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Not full speed yet

    Marte is taking groundballs and hitting during practice but is not yet up to full speed after missing time due to a hamstring injury, Jose M. Romero of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Marte served as the designated hitter for a fifth consecutive game Sunday. The Diamondbacks are being careful with their starting second baseman, who's had a history over hamstring injuries. The team is off Monday, so the next chance for Marte to take the field is Tuesday against the Padres.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Marte isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Padres, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: No hits in return

    Marte (hamstring) went 0-for-4 with a walk and two strikeouts in Tuesday's 3-2 extra-innings loss to the Padres.

    Marte didn't get on base until the 11th inning, and he was promptly lifted for a pinch runner (pitcher Luke Weaver). Marte missed four games before serving as the designated hitter Tuesday, and he may need to stick in that role for a little longer before returning to his regular position at second base. He's now batting .264 on the year after Tuesday's lackluster performance at the dish.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Re-enters lineup as DH

    Marte (hamstring) will serve as Arizona's designated hitter and No. 3 batter in Tuesday's game in San Diego.

    Though he'll be eased back into action in a non-defensive role, Marte demonstrated enough progress in his recovery from a left hamstring strain to put an end to his four-game absence. Arizona will likely see how Marte's hamstring responds to any baserunning he might do Tuesday before deciding whether he's fit to return to the field at his normal spot at second base in Wednesday's series finale.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Expected back for Padres series

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo expects Marte (hamstring) to be available during the team's three-game series in San Diego that begins Monday, Theo Mackie of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Marte was held out of the weekend series against the Twins due to a Grade 1 left hamstring strain. The Diamondbacks downplayed the injury, which Lovullo described it as "very, very mild." The club initially didn't request an MRI but eventually did when the second baseman didn't respond as quickly as hoped. Jake Hager started at second base Friday while Buddy Kennedy started Saturday and Sunday.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: On bench again Sunday

    Marte (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

    Marte's Grade 1 left hamstring strain hasn't forced him to the 10-day injured list yet, but he'll miss a third straight game in any event. Buddy Kennedy will draw the start at second base in place of Marte, who can be viewed as day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener in San Diego.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Day-to-day with Grade 1 strain

    Marte has a Grade 1 left lateral hamstring strain and is considered day-to-day, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    He has been sidelined since Wednesday and was hitting .306/.390/.500 with one home run over his last 10 games. The team will see how Marte progresses over the next day or two before deciding if a roster move needs to be made.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Managing tight hamstring

    Marte was removed from Wednesday's win over the Reds with tightness in his hamstring, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

    Marte went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run before being replaced in the field for the ninth inning, and manager Torey Lovullo labeled the second baseman's removal a precautionary move. Marte has not been scheduled for to undergo imaging, per Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, which suggests the club does not consider the injury serious. The Diamondbacks have a scheduled day off Thursday, so the 28-year-old will have a full day to recover ahead of Friday's series opener versus the Twins.

He's posted a .268/.338/.432 slash line with 18 RBI, 25 runs scored and three stolen bases this season.
