Starling Marte: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Although Marte is expected to move down in the Bucs' batting order, he doesn't intend to stop running. I want to be on base, steal bases, and get in scoring position, Marte told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. I have the same approach no matter what position I hit."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

A finger injury suffered Aug. 19 prematurely ended Marte's breakout season -- he saw just 27 of his 510 at-bats after the injury. The 25-year-old batted .280/.343/.441 with 12 homers, 35 RBI and 41 stolen bases (in 56 attempts). He ranked second in the NL with 24 Hit-By-Pitches. His 10.2 UZR and 20.1 UZR/150 ratings were the best among qualified NL left fielders. Despite a horrendous 25:138 BB:K ratio, Marte offset that number with a .363 BABIP -- which was actually his second lowest mark in five pro seasons. Expect more of the same from Marte in 2014. At some point, the team might move Marte out of the leadoff spot, but only if an adequate replacement can be found.

2013

Marte's offensive ceiling may be as high as another other Pirates positional player not named Andrew McCutchen. His first foray with the Bucs proved to be a bumpy ride, but he gave glimpses of why the organization values him highly. The outfielder, who homered on the first big-league pitch he ever saw in Houston, never played above Double-A prior to 2012. WIth Triple-A Indy, Marte hit .286/.347/.500 with 13 triples, 12 homers and 21 steals in 99 contests. A season after winning a Double-A batting title, not even a 28:91 BB:K ratio could hold him down. Marte then hit six triples, five homers and stole 12 bases in 47 games for Pittsburgh, despite an oblique injury. Plate discipline will likely always be an issue for the free swinger. He heads into 2013 as the odds-on starter left fielder, but he will be pushed by the several others and Pittsburgh management showed in 2012 that it can be quick to pull the trigger on a struggling left fielder -- see Alex Presley. The scenario for a breakout season is real, but the chance that he gets sent back to Triple-A for additional seasoning is also a distinct possibility. Marte represents a high-risk, high-reward offering, especially in one-year leagues.

2012

Marte made his Double-A debut in 2011 to the tune of a .332/.270/.500 slash line in 536 at-bats. Coming off a broken hamate bone in 2010, Marte showed a bit of the power (12 homers) that makes him the closest prospect Pittsburgh has to a five-tool talent. The 22-year-old righty hit 38 doubles, eight triples, stole 24-of-36 bags and hit .332. Marte lacks plate discipline (22:100 BB:K ratio) and it will be interesting to see how he fares against Triple-A pitching. Oddly, he hit .346 against righties (in 405 at-bats) and .288 (in 125 at-bats) versus lefties. It wouldn't be surprising to see him in a big league uniform by September, if not sooner.
