Starling Marte picks up a hit Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/2/14) Pirates outfielder Starling Marte collected one of the few hits for his club Wednesday against the Giants.
Marte finished 1 for 4, singling in the seventh inning. He was one of three Pirates to notch a hit against Madison Bumgarner during the contest. Bumgarner gave up just four hits during a complete game shutout. Marte also struck out once and stranded two runners.
Time off helps Starling Marte get back Tuesday
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) Pirates outfielder Starling Marte is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, after sitting out three games with an elbow injury.
Marte was hit by a pitch in Thursday's game, and managed to make just one pinch-hitting appearance in the team's weekend series against the Cubs. That time off was enough for Marte to return to full health, as he is batting sixth and starting in left field Tuesday.
Starling Marte able to pinch hit

|(9/15/14) Pirates outfielder Starling Marte, who has been out of the lineup since taking a pitch off the left elbow Thursday, appeared as a pinch-hitter Sunday against the Cubs. He struck out in his only at-bat.
The Pirates have an off day Monday before hosting the Red Sox Tuesday.
Starling Marte still on the bench

|(9/14/14) Starling Marte was not in the Pirates' starting lineup for Sunday's game versus the Cubs, as Travis Snider got his third straight start in left field. Marte has not played since he exited Thursday's game at the Phillies with a sore left elbow resulting from a hit-by-pitch.
Starling Marte out of lineup Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/13/14) Pirates outfielder Starling Marte remains out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Marte is available for pinch-running duty, but the soreness in his arm will prevent him from participating at the plate. He has hit .286/.357/.447 with 11 home runs, 50 RBI and 26 stolen bases in 441 at-bats.
|2014 summary: Just when you think you're out on Starling Marte, he pulls you right back in. Everything his detractors said about his BABIP in 2013 appeared to be spot on for the first four months of 2014, when he hit .255 with a .713 OPS to make him one of the year's biggest disappointment. But then he hit .354 with a .975 OPS over his final 49 games to finish as the 31st-best outfielder in Head-to-Head points leagues and the 19th-best in Rotisserie.|
Playing time status: Marte missed a two-week stretch in late July and early August with a concussion, but since his turnaround began immediately thereafter, you have no reason to suspect any lingering effects. The bigger threat to his playing time is a prolonged cold
streak with 2014 surprise Travis Snider now confined to the bench, but with Marte signed to a team-friendly long-term deal, the Pirates probably wouldn't do anything to undermine his development.
2015 outlook: For all the concern over Marte's BABIP at this time last year, he finished with an even higher mark in 2014 (.373) than in 2013 (.363), which will of course bring even more naysayers. But you know, sometimes players who strike out a lot still hit for respectable
batting averages. Marte did profile as that kind of player in the minors. He may frustrate you with his inconsistency, but players with 15-homer, 30-steal potential aren't so easy to find. You can feel confident drafting Marte as your second outfielder, particularly in Rotisserie leagues.
