Ketel Marte was removed from Saturday's game due to knee soreness.
X-rays came back negative for Marte, but his knee is still sore and the Diamondbacks will check in on the matter Sunday before making a decision on putting him in the lineup. Geraldo Perdomo would likely fill in at second base if Marte is out.
Ketel Marte had a strong performance in Thursday's game against the Cubs, driving in three runs on two hits, including a home run.
