Pirates' Starling Marte coming out of funk vs. Brewers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Pirates left fielder Starling Marte carried a .103/.156/.241 line into this weekend's series against the Brewers but has found his swing, going 4 for 10 with two home runs, seven RBI and two stolen bases in his last two games.

"Look where he was four days ago, and look where he is now," manager Clint Hurdle said after Saturday's win.

Marte struck out 14 times in 26 at-bats over his first seven games, and while he still didn't manage a hit Wednesday, he was able to avoid striking out for just the second time this season at that point. He's yet to strike out in his team's current series against the Brewers.

"Sometimes, it's extra work (on an off night). Sometimes it's us talking," Hurdle said. "It's always important for players to know the expectations of the manager. And it's never an average, a home run or RBIs; it's intangibles. They need to hear that you believe in them when things might not look very good. And he responded very well."

With his recent upturn, Marte has hit .189/.225/.459 with three home runs and nine RBI in 37 at-bats. He's batting fifth in Sunday's series finale against the Brewers.


Pirates outfielder Starling Marte totals five RBI in win Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Marte then ripped a 1-1 pitch from Lohse in the fifth inning over the left center field wall for a three-run homer, driving home McCutchen and Neil Walker, this third home run of the year.

Marte is now hitting .189 in 37 at-bats on the year with nine RBI.

Marte finished the game 2 for 4 with two RBI and two runs scored. He is now hitting .152 on the season after starting Friday's game at .103.


Pirates outfielder Starling Marte returns to the lineup Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Pirates outfielder Starling Marte will return the starting lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, the team announced.

Marte was given the day off Tuesday to rest and gather himself, manager Clint Hurdle said. Marte is hitting just .115 in 26 at-bats to begin the year. The Pirates are currently the favorites (-150) over the Tigers.


Pirates outfielder Starling Marte out of the lineup Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has decided to go with Corey Hart in right field Tuesday and moved Gregory Polanco to left, pushing Starling Marte to the bench, the team announced.

Hart has made one start so far this season and is hitting .500 in six at-bats. He is a career .269 hitter while playing right field and .268 while batting fifth.

"He's just being challenged right now," Hurdle said. "We've seen Starling get in some funks. He's been able to work his way out of them. One of the ways you help him is just to sit him down, give him a chance to catch his breath."

 He is hitting just .115 with 14 strikeouts in 26 at-bats this season. The Pirates are currently the favorites (-120) over the Tigers Tuesday.


Starling Marte homers for Pirates in win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Pirates outfielder Starling Marte hit a solo home run in the eighth to cap a 6-2 win over the Brewers. 

Marte went one for three with a run and two RBI. He had a sacrifice fly in the fifth. 

Manager Clint Hurdle still isn't sure where to slate Marte in the batting order, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.

"I never felt the optimum position for (Marte) was as the lead-off guy," Hurdle said. "He's a free-swinging, free-playing ballplayer that profiles well for me in the middle of the lineup. It's just a mentality of not having to be at the top. I think sometimes players will take on that (lead-off) mantra more so than you want them to."


Starling Marte picks up a hit Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Pirates outfielder Starling Marte collected one of the few hits for his club Wednesday against the Giants.
