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

|(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.

|(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.
|Starling Marte had a sterling first season as the Pirates' starting left fielder, overcoming his several drawbacks to emerge as more or less a must-start Fantasy option. In particular, his 41 steals -- more than he ever had in the minors -- made him indispensible in Rotisserie leagues. Sure, he had his slumps, hitting worse than .260 in May, July and September while hitting better than .290 in April, June and August, which no doubt made him frustrating to own in Head-to-Head points leagues. But the net result was a point-per-game average on par with Alex Gordon. If Marte hadn't missed those three weeks near the end of the year with a sprained hand, he too may have been a top-15 outfielder in that format. Striking out more than five times as often as he walks, streakiness will remain part of the equation for him, but the high points only figure to get higher for the 25-year-old with his power expected to increase in the prime of his career. Marte will likely last until the middle rounds on Draft Day since he remains a work in progress, but he's potentially one of the more rewarding picks at that stage of the draft.
