  • Mariners' Noelvi Marte: Struggling for AquaSox

    Marte owns a .234/.329/.365 slash line with 17 extra-base hits and 23 RBI across 20 games at High-A Everett this season.

    The precocious 20-year-old has hit a bit of a speed bump this season after an impressive showing over a modest eight-game stint with High-A Everett at the tail end of the 2021 minor-league campaign. Marte has seen a slight bump in strikeout rate to 25.5 percent from his 22.2 percent figure at Modesto last season, and Brent Stecker of 710 ESPN Seattle reports Marte's average has been under .250 since May 25.

  • Mariners' Noelvi Marte: Warming up in High-A

    Marte is hitting a modest .252/.358/.417 with four homers, three steals and a 14:37 BB:K across 26 games for High-A Everett.

    He's shown some signs of warming up lately, going 6-for-17 (.353) with a homer and a steal across the last four games, but Marte has run hot and cold for the entirety of the season's first month-plus. Before this stretch, he went 3-for-24 in a six-game span -- and before that, he went 8-for-19 over four games. The net is that while Marte's plate discipline has remained strong, his power production and consistency have been issues. After last season's 17 homers and 23 steals in (what was then) Low-A, much more was expected from Marte with the bat. He's had his struggles with the glove, too, with eight errors giving him an unpleasant .922 fielding percentage and making it look increasingly likely that he'll be moved off shortstop at some point. Marte should still be considered a high-end prospect, but it would be good to see more power from him, especially after he closed out 2021 with a lengthy homer drought.

  • Mariners' Noelvi Marte: To see regular Cactus League action

    Marte (lower leg), the Mariners' No. 2 prospect, will see regular playing time during Cactus League games per manager Scott Servais, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    Marte finished 2021, his first professional season, at High-A Everett, slashing .290/.333/.419 over eight contest after a productive 99-game tenure at Low-A Modesto. The 20-year-old shortstop is a significant part of the organization's long-term plans, so even though Seattle would reportedly like to add one more impact pitcher, it would be highly hesitant to part with Marte, who's primed to gain some valuable seasoning against big-league arms in spring training.

  • Mariners' Noelvi Marte: Leaves game as precaution

    Marte left Saturday's intrasquad game after fouling a ball off his left shin, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com

    By all reports the move was a precautionary one as there's no reason for Marte to push himself through an injury this close to the start of the season. The infielder is thought of as one of the top prospects in the game after an impressive 2021 campaign at Low-A and High-A.

  • Mariners' Noelvi Marte: Bumped up to High-A

    The Mariners promoted Marte from Low-A Modesto to High-A Everett on Monday.

    The top prospect in the lower levels of the Seattle system, Marte was handed the promotion after slashing .271/.368/.462 with 17 home runs, 23 stolen bases and a 22.2 percent strikeout rate over 478 plate appearances at Low-A. He'll likely finish the season at Everett and begin the 2022 campaign with the affiliate, but a hot September could put him in position for a quick call-up to Arkansas at some point next spring.

  • Mariners' Noelvi Marte: Huge game at Low-A

    Marte went 4-for-5 with three home runs, a walk, nine RBI, two additional runs and one stolen base Tuesday in Low-A Modesto's 16-15 loss to Stockton.

    There was no shortage of offensive fireworks from either team Tuesday, and no player shone brighter than Marte. On the heels of the massive performance, the 19-year-old shortstop pushed his slash line up to .277/.361/.482 over 349 plate appearances. Marte has met expectations and then some during his first season at a full-season affiliate, and a promotion to High-A Everett could be in the cards before the year is out.

  • Mariners' Noelvi Marte: Rolling in Low-A

    Marte, who snapped an 11-game hitting streak with Low-A Modesto on Sunday, is hitting .286 with an .882 OPS across 49 games this season.

    One of three super-prospects for the Mariners, Marte has 10 homers and seven steals with a 29:49 BB:K -- showing the sort of power, speed and patience that makes for star potential. He'll likely step up to High-A at some point this season, but we won't likely see him in the big leagues until 2023.

  • Mariners' Noelvi Marte: Joining taxi squad

    Marte will be a part of the Mariners' taxi squad this season, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

    While prospects like Jarred Kelenic and Julio Rodriguez could get legitimate playing time in the majors as a part of Seattle's taxi squad, it seems unlikely Marte will get similar opportunities. He has never played stateside or above rookie ball, so while his future appears bright, his inclusion on the taxi squad is unlikely to result in notable playing time in the majors this season.

  • Mariners' Noelvi Marte: Organization enthralled by upside

    Marte, who is projected to remain at shortstop for the foreseeable future, is considered one of the organization's brightest prospects, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Brock notes the 18-year-old Marte is still unsurprisingly growing into his body, now standing closer to 6-foot-2 after being drafted at almost two inches shorter and appearing to have a more chiseled frame in spring training than he did during his time in the Dominican Summer League last year. Marte may be robbed of a minor-league season this year, but in the event of such, he could potentially continue to get baseball-related work as part of developmental games each team might organize for some of its top prospects.
