Starling Marte has '21 club option exercised by Marlins

The Miami Marlins exercised Starling Marte's 2021 club option.

Fantasy Impact

CEO Derek Jeter announced earlier this month that Miami would be making this move and now it's official. The option comes with a $12.5 million price tag, which is more than reasonable for Marte's services. He'll once again be a valuable fantasy asset in spring drafts.

Starling Marte having 2021 option picked up by Miami

Starling Marte's $12.5 million option for 2021 has been picked up by the Marlins, per beat writer Barry Jackson.

Fantasy Impact

Marte will remain in South Florida for the 2021 season as the upstart Marlins will look to build on their surprise 2020 playoff appearance. Unfortunately, the 32-year old center fielder fractured his hand after getting hit by a pitch in Game 1 of the Wild Card series against the Cubs. He finished the regular season with a .281/.340/.430 batting line to go along with six home runs and 27 RBI across 228 at-bats between the D-Backs and the Marlins.

Starling Marte (hand) roster decision to go down to the wire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly says the team has not yet made a decision on whether or not Starling Marte (hand) will be on the NLDS roster.

Fantasy Impact

Mattingly adds that a decision will likely go right up to their deadline to submit. Marte suffered a non-displaced fracture on his left hand in Game 1 of the Wild Card Round. His absence would be a blow to a feisty, upstart Miami ball club.

Starling Marte (hand) 'no determination' on status for NLDS

Marlins' manager Don Mattingly said the Marlins have "no determination" on the status of OF Starling Marte (hand) for this week's NLDS matchup with the Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Marte exited Game 1 of the NLDS against the Cubs with a fractured hand. He won't require surgery to correct the issue and is day-to-day. Marte will be included on the playoff roster, but it is unclear at this time if he will return. Magneuris Sierra will continue to hanle CF duties while Marte is sidelined.
