Starling Marte suspended 80 games after testing positive for PEDs

Starling Marte has been suspended 80 games after testing positive for Nandrolone, a performance-enhancing substance.

Fantasy Impact

This is a remarkable development for the Pirates and MLB, as Marte is one of the more significant names to be suspended under baseball's drug-testing policy. Marte is an exceptional talent and fantasy asset, so if there's any way to hold him on your roster for the 80-game suspension, he will almost assuredly provide dividends down the stretch. In the meantime, it's possible that Austin Meadows will get a look, but he's currently batting just .162 at Triple-A. As for other Pirates, other hitters, such as Andrew McCutchen and Gregory Polanco, get a small downgrade with Marte's absence from the lineup.

Starling Marte has big day on Saturday

Starling Marte went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs, and a stolen base in the Pirates 8-7 win over the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Marte filled the stat sheet on Saturday and is an illustration of his fantasy value. He hasn't been consistent, but his production remains on track due to a few big performances. Marte has been on track this year and his fantasy value remains as expected.

Starling Marte swipes first stolen base of the season

Starling Marte went 1-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base in the Pirates 6-2 loss to the Reds on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Marte recorded his first stolen base of the season in fashion as the Pirates deployed a double steal, allowing him to steal home. While that will be a rare feat for Marte, plenty more stolen bases should be coming for him in the upcoming weeks.

Starling Marte hits walk-off home run Sunday

Starling Marte went 4-for-5 with two runs scored, one home run, and two RBI in the Pirates 6-5 win over the Braves Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Marte had started the season relatively quietly as he had not recorded any extra-base hits or stolen bases. While he still has not stolen a base, he did hit his first home run of the season. This is promising for fantasy owners who hoped to get a bit more power out of Marte this season, as he hit just nine home runs all of last season.

Starling Marte drives in two on Friday

Starling Marte went 2-for-4 with two RBI and one run scored in the Pirates 5-4 win over the Braves on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Marte recorded his first multi-hit game of the season and made it count as he racked up the counting stats in today's game. This should come as no surprise as Marte is one of the most coveted outfield assets in fantasy baseball. He has yet to attempt a stolen base on the season, his main fantasy contribution, but fantasy owners will be happy with today's performance regardless.
