The Marlins announced Tuesday that Marte (rib) has been cleared for "rotational" work, but he's not yet ready to resume baseball activities, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Marte looks to have taken a slight step forward in his recovery from a non-displaced rib fracture, but the Marlins haven't adjusted his projected timeline. He'll likely remain on the 10-day injured list until at least the early part of June.
Marte (ribs) may not be back in the lineup until early June, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
The Marlins expect the center fielder will be sidelined at least a month, which would make a late May return the best-case scenario, but the club has little reason to rush him back and risk aggravating the injury of a player it might be looking to trade in the second half. Marte has been out since April 18 with a nondisplaced fracture in his 12th rib, on the left side of his chest. The lengthy absence means he'll need a minor-league rehab stint before rejoining the big-league roster.
Marte is still feeling discomfort in his fractured rib and remains without a timetable to return to activity, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Marte has already been out for a week, so he's nearing the time when he'll be able to return from the injured list. It doesn't appear as though he'll have a chance to return when first eligible, though it remains unclear how much more time the Marlins expect him to miss.
The Marlins placed Marte (rib) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Marte's move to the IL was a foregone conclusion after he was diagnosed Monday with a non-displaced fracture in his 12th rib following an MRI. The Marlins plan to re-evaluate Marte in 5-to-7 days before providing an updated timeline for his return. Lewis Brinson was recalled from the alternate site in a corresponding move, and he could take over as the Marlins' primary center fielder while Marte is on the mend.
Marte underwent an MRI on Monday which revealed a non-displaced fracture on his rib.
Marte left Sunday's game against the Giants with what originally appeared to be a left oblique or intercostal muscle injury. He'll be shut down for five to seven days before being reevaluated. He's yet to be officially placed on the injured list, but that transaction is expected to come Tuesday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports. His expected return date should become clearer following that reevaluation.
Marte was lifted for a pinch hitter midway through his at-bat in the bottom of the ninth inning during Sunday's 1-0 loss to the Giants after suffering an apparent injury to his left oblique or intercostal muscle, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Marte, who went 1-for-3 prior to the ninth-inning plate appearance, appeared to pick up the injury while swinging at a Tyler Rogers offering. Manager Don Mattingly said after the game that Marte hasn't been given a firm diagnosis for his injury yet, but the fact that the skipper didn't downplay the issue raises concern that the outfielder might require a trip to the 10-day injured list. The Marlins should provide more clarity on Marte's condition before the team begins a two-game set with Baltimore on Tuesday.
Marte went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's win over the Giants.
Marte broke the tie in the eighth inning with a three-run shot off reliever Wandy Peralta, who had previously allowed a single to Corey Dickerson. This was Marte's second homer of the campaign, and the veteran outfielder is enjoying a strong start to the season -- he's hitting .320 with a .937 OPS while reaching base safely in each of his last eight games.
Marte went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks Thursday against Atlanta.
Marte took Nate Jones deep in the seventh inning for his first home run of the season. The effort also extended Marte's hitting streak to five games, during which he's gone 7-for-20 with two RBI, nine runs scored and a stolen base.
Marte went 2-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and three runs scored in Tuesday's 14-8 win over Atlanta.
Marte reached four straight times after grounding out in his first at-bat, as he singled twice, walked and was hit by a pitch. The 32-year-old plated Miguel Rojas with his first hit of the day in the second inning and then proceeded to cross home in the fourth, sixth and seventh with the Marlins scoring at will off almost every pitcher they saw for Atlanta. Marte has been locked in at the plate over the last three games with a slash line of .417/.533/.500 and has driven in one RBI while scoring six runs over that span.
Marte went 1-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in Monday's 5-3 win over the Braves.
The 32-year-old was quiet for the majority of the game, but he made a real difference in the last three innings. Marte reached base in the eighth and 10th innings, coming around to score in both instances as the Marlins completed a come-from-behind win. He's drawn a walk in three of the last four games, which is promising for a player who isn't known for leaving the bat on his shoulder. However, we're still waiting for Marte's first homer of the year.
Marte went 3-for-5 with a double in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Rays.
After striking out in all four of his at-bats Opening Day, Marte quickly righted the ship with a strong effort Friday, albeit in a losing cause. The veteran outfielder has posted an OPS below .770 only once in the last eight seasons, and there's little reason to think his production will fall off in his first full campaign in Miami.
Marte has gone 9-for-27 (.333) through 11 Grapefruit League games with a 2:4 BB:K and two stolen bases on two attempts.
The 32-year-old hasn't gone yard yet, but Marte has lashed two doubles and two triples. He's set as the Marlins' Opening Day center fielder, and he'll be looking to put together a big campaign with free agency looming next winter. Marte hasn't hit below .275 in any of the last eight seasons, and his OPS has fallen below .770 only once during that stretch, giving him an exceptionally stable floor for fantasy purposes.
The Marlins informed Marte (hand) on Wednesday that they will exercise his $12.5 million team option for 2021, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Team CEO Derek Jeter told the media earlier this month that he hoped to retain Marte through the upcoming season, so the Marlins' decision to pick up the outfielder's affordable option comes as little surprise. Though he was sidelined for the Marlins' NLDS loss to the Braves after fracturing his left hand, Marte is expected to be back to full strength well in advance of spring training. Between his stops in Arizona and Miami in 2020, the 32-year-old proved he was still a capable bat near the top of the lineup, slashing .281/.340/.430 with six home runs and 10 stolen bases over 61 games.
Marte (hand) will not be on the Marlins' roster for the NLDS against the Braves, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Marte broke his hand after getting hit by a pitch in Game 1 of the Wild Card Round against the Cubs. He remained on the roster for Game 2 as a potential pinch runner, but the fracture will keep him from being able to hit in the near future, so he'll be dropped from the roster for the next series. He isn't expected to require surgery, however, so he could have a shot to return for the NLCS should the Marlins advance past Atlanta.
Manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that the Marlins haven't made any determination on the status of Marte (hand) for this week's NLDS matchup with the Braves, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Marte fractured his left hand in the Marlins' postseason opener against the Cubs on Sept. 30 and sat out the series-clinching win two days later. Despite the severity of his injury, Marte apparently won't require surgery to address the fractured hand, leaving the door open for him to play for the rest of the Marlins' playoff run. When he'll be ready to hit again is more of a question mark, so even if Marte is included on the NLDS roster, he may largely be limited to pinch running and defensive duty.
Marte (hand) remains on the bench Friday for the rescheduled Game 2 of the Wild Card Series against the Cubs, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports.
It would be a surprise to see Marte in the lineup any time soon, as he fractured his pinky after getting hit by a pitch Wednesday. He was reportedly going to be available for Game 2 off the bench when it was originally scheduled to take place Thursday, likely just to pinch run or perhaps play the field. That's presumably still the case Friday. Magneuris Sierra will play center field in his absence.
Marte (hand) isn't in the lineup for Game 2 of the Wild Card Series against the Cubs but could be available off the bench in some capacity, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Marte visited a hand specialist Thursday, who confirmed that he suffered small fracture at the base of his pinky after getting hit by a pitch in Game 1. The issue is apparently minor enough that he can attempt to play through it, though he'll be on the bench Thursday, with Magneuris Sierra getting the start in center field.
Marte suffered a fractured left hand during Wednesday's Game 1 win against the Cubs but is still considered day-to-day, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Marte's X-ray revealed a non-displaced fracture of his left pinky finger, but there's still hope that he could play through the injury. As a result, he's still considered day-to-day by the Marlins for now. If Marte misses time, Magneuris Sierra and Monte Harrison should take over in center field.
Marte will undergo X-rays on his left hand after leaving Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The initial diagnosis for the 31-year-old is a hand contusion, but the X-rays will determine whether or not he sustained a fracture. Marte went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored before he was forced to exit during the ninth inning when he was hit by a pitch. Monte Harrison or Magneuris Sierra figure to take over in center field should Marte miss any time.
Marte exited Wednesday's contest against the Cubs in the top of the ninth inning with a left hand contusion, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Marte was hit by a pitch on his left hand while leading off the ninth inning during Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against Chicago. He appeared to be in considerable pain and immediately left the game with a trainer. He'll undergo an X-ray to determine the severity of the injury, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports. Monte Harrison replaced him as a pinch runner, and Harrison or Magneuris Sierra could serve as the center fielder if Marte misses additional time.
