RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Marte slightly improved upon his numbers from his first full season in 2014, slashing .291/.356/.453 with 13 homers and 30 stolen bases in 545 plate appearances. When Pittsburgh moved him out of the leadoff spot to seventh in order, he strung together four multi-hit performances in the next seven games and never looked back. His RBI total improved from 35 to 56 (year over year) and he ended up batting mostly fifth against left-handed pitching. A .373 BABIP appears ripe for regression, but he's never dipped below a .333 BABIP in six pro seasons. Marte, who signed a six-year, $31 million extension in March of 2013, played a more-than-capable center field when Andrew McCutchen went on the DL. After bottoming out June 8 with a .230 batting average, the 26-year-old hit .338/.397/.529 in 305 plate appearances. Provided he stays healthy -- he's been hit by 41 pitches the last two seasons -- expect another strong campaign from Marte.

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.
