Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Just like spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte went 2-for-2 with a double and a home run during an intra-squad game Monday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Marte opened summer camp much like spring training when he homered in his first at-bat of the Cactus League. He could move around defensively but is expected to make second base his primary home.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: An option at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo talked about using the designated hitter position as a way to keep Marte's bat in the lineup while giving him a break in the field, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Marte had a breakout season in 2019 before he suffered a stress reaction in his back in September. The theory was that he played too much, particularly in center field, which was a new position to him. "It will give me a chance to get guys off their feet," Lovullo said of the DH. "Knowing the workload is going to be pretty heavy and we're going to be going full throttle, getting a guy off his feet for a day game in Colorado is probably something we would be addressing." The manager had every intention of giving Marte more downtime in 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic put a halt to MLB. The desire to rest him is still there during the 60-game sprint of a regular season. Only now, the rest will be in the form of having Marte serve as the DH. Others being considered for the DH rotation are Jake Lamb, Christian Walker, Eduardo Escobar and Kevin Cron.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Has healthy spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte showed no effect from last season's back injury during a productive spring, batting .375 (9-for-24) with four extra-base hits, three runs scored and four RBI over nine Cactus League games.

Marte's breakout 2019 season ended prematurely in September due to a stress reaction in his back. It was an injury the Diamondbacks felt was brought on by him playing center field, a more active position than second base, his primary home on the diamond until last season. He showed no residual effects of the injury before spring training was suspended -- he homered in his first at-bat and didn't stop hitting. Marte will move back to the less stressful second base position in 2020. The switch-hitter bounced between leadoff and second in the order during the Cactus League, switching up with the newly acquired Starling Marte.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Homers in first spring AB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-3 spring win over Oakland.

Marte wasted little time, jumping on a mistake from Athletics right-hander Chris Bassitt during his first spring at-bat. Marte, who had a breakout campaign in 2019, started at second base in Arizona's first Cactus League game. That's likely the position he'll occupy most frequently in 2020 after the Diamondbacks acquired Starling Marte to man center field. Ketel Marte led the Diamondbacks in 2019 with 96 starts in center.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Impacted by addition of other Marte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks could have Ketel Marte (back) primarily play second base after the team acquired center fielder Sterling Marte from the Pirates, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ketel Marte, who shuttled between second base and center field in 2019, appeared in a career-high 92 games in the outfield before sustaining a back injury late in the season. The Diamondbacks believe the extra activity involved in being a center fielder contributed to the injury, so the acquisition of Sterling Marte gives manager Torey Lovullo the flexibility to have Ketel Marte play a less stressful position.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Looking like center fielder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen said Marte (back) may be the everyday center fielder in 2020, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Hazen has actively pursued a center fielder during the offseason without success. "I would imagine that would put Ketel a little bit more squarely in center field, but we still have a ways to go and we still have some opportunities to explore," Hazen said. "But I would say we're probably moving more in that direction by the day." The Diamondbacks will proceed cautiously with Marte, who had a breakout 2019 season but suffered a stress reaction in his back. One theory is that Marte, an infielder by trade, sustained the injury partially due to the extra running involved in playing center field. That, coupled with increased baserunning opportunities -- Marte had a career-high .389 on-base percentage -- are seen as contributing factors. Marte played 96 games in center field last season, and Hazen added the organization has not established a threshold of a number of games it would be comfortable with him playing there this coming season.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Talks about root cause of injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Headed for CT scan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: MRI scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Exits with back stiffness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Plays three positions Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Flexing muscle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Launches three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Hits grand slam in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Makes outfield start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Zeroing in on 30 homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Returns Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
