Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Scores twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Padres.

Marte led off the fourth inning with a double and came around to score on a Stephen Vogt sacrifice fly. Marte then clubbed his first homer of the year in the sixth to give Arizona a 2-1 lead. The 31-year-old outfielder is now hitting .372/.481/.558 with three RBI, nine runs scored and two stolen bases in 14 contests.

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Doubles twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Astros.

Marte has been a frequent visitor to the base paths the last two games, going 5-for-8 with two walks and three runs scored. He stood out while many of the Diamondbacks' hitters slumped to start the season, but the offense showed signs of breaking out during the Houston series, Arizona's first series win. Marte has just two RBI, but is slashing .359/.479/.462 with seven runs and two steals in 12 games.

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Swipes bag in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and was hit by a pitch in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Marte singled in the fourth inning and swiped a bag in the ninth after being drilled by Kenley Jansen. The 31-year-old outfielder is slashing .300/.432/.367 and has already been hit by three pitches in nine games this season.

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

Marte began the year with a five-game hitting streak but will now get his first off day of the season. Jon Jay gets the nod in center field in his absence.

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Scores lone run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Padres. He was also caught stealing.

Marte scored the lone run for the Diamondbacks, whose offense has been quieted over the first two games in San Diego. The team is 3-for-16 with runners in scoring position to start the season. Marte has gone 3-for-8 in the two games and has scored two runs.

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte (undisclosed) returned to the Diamondbacks' camp Friday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Marte had missed the past four days of on-field workouts for an undisclosed reason, but he was cleared to rejoin the team Friday. It's unclear whether his absence will impact his preparations for Opening Day, but the team hopes that he'll be able to participate in intrasquad games over the weekend.

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Absent from camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte wasn't present for the Diamondbacks' workouts Thursday for an undisclosed reason, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Marte hasn't been seen in workouts Tuesday or Wednesday, and he was once again absent Thursday. Manager Torey Lovullo didn't provide a reason for his absence, and the team wouldn't legally be allowed to say whether it's related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Whether his absence will impact Marte's availability for the start of the regular season remains to be seen.

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Top of the order batter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte batted .200 (4-for-20) with two extra-base hits, four walks, one RBI and one stolen base over nine Cactus League games.

With a new team after being traded from Pittsburgh to Arizona during the offseason, Marte batted leadoff (eight games) or second (one game) during spring action. He's no stranger to the top of the order, but the 31-year-old center fielder predominantly hit third for the Pirates the last two seasons. Wherever he lands, a healthy Marte should get north of 600 plate appearances, offering plenty of opportunities for the five-category outfielder.

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Makes spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte started in center field and batted leadoff in Monday's spring game against San Francisco. He went 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base.

Marte made his debut for the Diamondbacks, who acquired him from the Pirates a couple of weeks prior to spring training. He's expected to be the team's primary center fielder, although his placement at the top of the order was noteworthy. The 31-year-old outfielder was a middle-of-the-order staple for Pittsburgh each of the last two seasons.

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Acquired by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte was traded from the Pirates to the Diamondbacks in exchange for Liover Peguero, Brennan Malone and international money on Monday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Marte emerged as one of the top options on the trade market once most of the best free agents had been signed. He should slot in at or near the top of the Diamondbacks' lineup and serve as the team's everyday center fielder for all of this season and likely the next, as Arizona will hold a club option for the 2021 season. Marte has stolen at least 20 bases for seven straight seasons and has hit at least 20 homers in each of the last two campaigns, a number which could go up now that he's left a pitcher-friendly park in Pittsburgh. Heading into his age-31 season, he doesn't seem to be slowing down, as he hit .295/.342/.503 for the Pirates last season.

Pirates' Starling Marte: Healthy in offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte (wrist) is going through his offseason training fully healthy, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Marte's 2019 campaign ended prematurely in early September due to a sprained wrist. It doesn't appear as though the issue will affect him heading into the 2020 season. Whether or not the 31-year-old spends that season as a member of the rebuilding Pirates remains to be seen.

Pirates' Starling Marte: Club option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte's (wrist) $11.5 million club option for 2020 was picked up Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 31-year-old hit a career-high 23 home runs with 82 RBI in 2019, so the team's decision to pick up his option isn't very surprising. Once the Pirates gain stability in the front office, Marte could be traded during the offseason if the team can find value as it looks to rebuild.

Pirates' Starling Marte: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte (wrist) will not return this season, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

With just five games left in the season and the Pirates out of playoff contention, the team opted to shut Marte and a few others down. The outfielder appeared in 132 games, slashing .295/.342/.503 while setting career highs in home runs (23), RBI (82) and runs scored (97). He also swiped 25 bases. Marte isn't expected to require surgery and should be ready by the start of spring training.

Pirates' Starling Marte: Return remains in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte (wrist) does not appear close to returning, general manager Neal Huntington said during his Sunday radio show on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh.

"He's continued to fight to get back into the lineup but his body hasn't cooperated the way we would ideally like it to," Huntington noted. With only six games remaining in the season, time is running out on Marte. The center fielder hasn't appeared in a game since serving as a pinch runner Sept. 10.

Pirates' Starling Marte: Out until at least Sept. 24
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte (wrist) won't return to the lineup until Sept. 24 against the Cubs at the earliest, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Marte and Josh Bell (groin) are not being shut down and are still trying to get cleared to return to action before the end of the season. At this point, Marte will have a chance to play in six games maximum over the rest of the season, and we probably won't know his status for the Cubs series until Tuesday.

Pirates' Starling Marte: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte (wrist) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

Wednesday's game will mark the ninth in a row that Marte has opened on the bench. The Pirates still don't have a target date for Marte's return, and with just 10 games to go and the club out of the playoff hunt, the chances of him being shut down increase with each additional game he misses.

Pirates' Starling Marte: Held out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte (wrist) isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Seattle.

Marte hasn't taken the field since Sept. 10, and he remains without a timetable for a return. He suffered a sprained left wrist Sept. 8 against the Cardinals and is now experiencing inflammation. According to Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic, skipper Clint Hurdle stated prior to Tuesday's game that he "doesn't see an immediate return to play" for Marte.

Pirates' Starling Marte: Still no timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Neal Huntington said during his Sunday radio show that Marte is still experiencing inflammation in his left wrist, 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh reports.

Marte has been limited to a couple pinch-running appearances since injuring his wrist last Sunday. Huntington offered no update as to when he expects the outfielder to return to the starting lineup. Bryan Reynolds continues to start in center field in Marte's absence.

September 15, 2019 11:08 AM
Pirates' Starling Marte: Remains out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte (wrist) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

Marte remains on the bench for the series finale and hasn't seen game action since Sept. 10 due to the left wrist sprain. Pablo Reyes, Bryan Reynolds and Jose Osuna will start from left to right in the outfield Sunday.

September 14, 2019 12:48 PM
Pirates' Starling Marte: Still out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte (wrist) is not in Saturday's lineup against the Cubs.

He hasn't been in the lineup since Sept. 8 and hasn't appeared off the bench since Sept. 10 due to the wrist injury. Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Marte is currently only available as a pinch runner. Bryan Reynolds will continue to start in center field while Kevin Kramer starts in left.
