Marte has been diagnosed with a stress reaction in his back and will be shut down for the rest of the season, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Marte was removed from Tuesday's matchup due to a stiff back, and the team announced prior to Friday's clash that the outfielder is done for the year. He won't require surgery and is expected to be ready to roll for the start of spring training, per Piecoro. Jarrod Dyson figures to see time in center field against right-handers while Tim Locastro slots in against lefties with Marte out of commission.
Marte (back) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres.
Marte was held out of Wednesday's game after leaving Tuesday's contest with a stiff back, and he will miss another game Friday despite the Diamondbacks coming off a team off day. It's not yet clear how long Marte will be sidelined, but with Arizona's playoff hopes fading, there is little incentive for the club to risk Marte's long-term health.
Marte believes the added running that comes with playing center field has been a contributor to his current back discomfort, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
At first, Marte talked about how the new artificial turf at Chase Field "took a toll on me," echoing similar comments earlier this season from fellow outfielders Adam Jones and David Peralta. When reporters pressed on with follow-up inquiries, Marte walked back the comments, instead saying the increased running that comes with playing the outfield for the first time in his career was a possible source of back pain. "I feel like next year, when I'm more used to playing center and I have all that experience under my belt, then my body will be more conditioned to play the outfield," he said. Marte has started 92 games in center field in 2019.
Marte is dealing with lower-back inflammation and will get a CT scan Thursday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
He had an MRI Wednesday and will undergo further testing. With the Diamondbacks essentially out of the playoff mix, it would not be surprising if Marte did not return this season. We should learn more before this weekend's series against the Padres.
Marte (back) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday and won't play in the Diamondbacks' series finale against the Marlins later in the day, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Marte was pulled from Tuesday's 12-6 loss with what was described as back stiffness. The Diamondbacks are technically still in the hunt for a postseason berth, but the team faces long odds to come away with one of the National League's two wild-card spots. As such, the organization may not want to push a valuable asset like Marte, who has enjoyed a breakout campaign.
Marte left Tuesday's game against the Marlins in the fifth inning due to back stiffness, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
He went 2-for-2 with a double and a run prior to being replaced by Josh Rojas. This is not the first time Marte has dealt with back issues this season, so hopefully he is able to continue to manage the issue without being shut down before the end of the season.
Marte went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Monday's 7-5 win over the Marlins.
Marte started in center field, then moved to second base when Jarrod Dyson pinch ran for Wilmer Flores, before he ended up at shortstop when Nick Ahmed (finger) left the game. Ahmed was confident when talking to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic about returning in time for Tuesday's game. If Ahmed is not cleared for Tuesday, Marte could slot in at shortstop for the 11th time this season.
Marte went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Reds.
Marte's sixth-inning blast gave the Diamondbacks a lead the bullpen would later give away. He has four homers and 14 RBI over the last six games. Marte has hit safely in his last 18 starts, posting a .427/,469/.853 slash line with eight home runs and 23 RBI dating back to Aug. 14.
Marte went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and a walk in Friday's win over the Reds.
Marte's homer, his 31st of the season, gave his team a two-run lead in the fifth inning. He's been on a tear at the plate over the last four games, going 11-for-17 with three homers and a massive 11 RBI over that stretch.
Marte went 3-for-4 with a grand slam in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Padres.
During a scoreless game in the bottom of the seventh, Marte came up to bat with the bases loaded and crushed a 411-foot grand slam off Luis Perdomo. It was the second grand slam of Marte's career and his 30th long ball of the season. The 25-year-old has been scorching hot, tallying eight hits and eight RBI over the three-game series with San Diego.
Marte started in center field and went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple and a run scored in Tuesday's 2-1 win over San Diego.
Marte made his first start in the outfield since missing time with a hamstring injury. He had started at second base the previous two games before slotting into center field, an indication the hamstring is no longer a bother.
Marte went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run and four RBI in Monday's 14-7 win over the Padres.
Marte launched homer number 29 on Monday to go along with his 30th double. Throw in his eight triples and the infielder/outfielder leads the Diamondbacks in slugging (.577). Since returning from a hamstring over the weekend, Marte's been relegated to second base only.
Marte started at second base and went 1-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's 4-3 extra-innings loss to the Dodgers.
Marte was back in action after missing two games with a right hamstring injury. It's the same injury that popped up at the beginning of last week. That he was able to score from second base on an infield hit is a good sign the hamstring has healed.
Marte (hamstring) will bat third and start at second base Sunday against the Dodgers.
Marte was held out of the lineup the last two days with the right hamstring issue, though he did appear as a pinch hitter Friday. The 25-year-old had a .356/.431/.611 slash line with five home run and four stolen bases over 23 games in August.
Marte (hamstring) said that he thinks he will return to the lineup Sunday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
The Diamondbacks held Marte out of Friday's lineup due to a lingering right hamstring issue and he will sit again Saturday, though he's available to pinch hit. Marte's slash line has only gotten better since the All-Star break and he's stolen four bags in August after swiping five total over the first four months of the season. He's been a top-eight outfielder so far in terms of year-to-date fantasy value.
Marte (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.
Marte left Tuesday's game with a right hamstring cramp, and while he was able to return for the Diamondbacks' next game, he's now been on the bench for two straight. His absence Friday was said to be precautionary. Tim Locastro is starting in center field Saturday with lefty Clayton Kershaw due up for Los Angeles.
Marte is out of Friday's lineup as a precaution due to his right hamstring issue, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Marte was pulled from Thursday's game after feeling something around the area where he experienced the hamstring cramp earlier in the week, and manager Torey Lovullo isn't taking any chances. It's unclear if the 25-year-old will be available off the bench, but he should be considered day-to-day for now.
Marte is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers.
Marte made a late exit Thursday once Arizona had a big lead, but there's been no official indication that he's nursing an injury. The 25-year-old was dealing with a right hamstring cramp earlier in the week but had remained in the starting nine until Friday. Jarrod Dyson receives the start in center field while Adam Jones takes over in right.
Marte, who had been dealing with a hamstring injury, was replaced in center field to start the seventh inning during Thursday's win over the Dodgers.
There's nothing to indicate Marte was removed due to an aggravation of the hamstring strain, so his removal may be attributed to an abundance of caution. The Diamondbacks were leading 10-4 at the time, and it's logical to assume manager Torey Lovullo did not want to push Marte.
Marte (hamstring) is starting in center field and hitting leadoff Thursday against the Dodgers.
Marte exited Tuesday's game with a right hamstring cramp, but he's good to go for Thursday's series opener after a scheduled off day Wednesday. The 25-year-old is in the midst of a 10-game hitting streak -- during which he's slashing .415/.467/.805 with four home runs, nine RBI and a steal -- and will look to keep things rolling against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu on Thursday.
