Starling Marte swipes two bases Friday

Starling Marte went 2-for-5 with four runs scored and two stolen bases in the Pirates' 13-5 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Marte played a big role in the Pirates' victory on Friday and that translated very well for fantasy owners as well. Not only did Marte swipe his first two bases since returning from suspension, but he also scored four runs. Though the performance was aided by Coors Field, it is a good time to remember the massive stolen base and run producing potential Marte provides to fantasy owners.

Starling Marte reaches base twice in debut

Starling Marte went 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored in the Pirates' 4-3 win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Marte played in his first major league game since April 17 after serving a 50 PED suspension. Expectations are hard to set for him, though tonight's performance has to be considered a positive sign. Considering that he immediately batted atop the lineup, Marte should be viewed as a strong contributor for runs, stolen bases, and batting average moving forward.

Starling Marte reinstated from the restricted list

Starling Marte (suspension) was reinstated from the restricted list Tuesday in advance of the Pirates' game with the Brewers. He'll bat leadoff and play left field.

Fantasy Impact

Marte should maintain the starting left field job for the rest of the season. He started the year off slowly hitting .241 over 13 games before his suspension. But the 28-year-old outfielder did hit .304 while rehabbing in Triple A before his reinstatement. Marte brings speed and fantasy owners should be grabbing him if he is available on any waiver wires.

Starling Marte set to begin rehab assignment

Starling Marte is set to begin a rehab assignment on Sunday, July 2nd with Class A Bradenton.

Fantasy Impact

Marte will begin working his way back into baseball shape as his 80-game PED suspension is set to end July 18. With this news, many fantasy owners will likely head to the wire to pick him up. That said, make sure he is owned in your league, especially for those teams in need of speed, batting average, and run production.

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.
