Starling Marte not playing well in winter ball

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Starling Marte is struggling in winter ball, batting just .197 through 20 games.

Fantasy Impact

So far Marte has posted a disappointing .244 OBP with a .316 slugging percentage. Marte also has a 21/3 K/BB ratio, which is less than ideal. He served a long suspension for PEDs this past season, and struggled upon returning. He's a risky fantasy bet right now.

Starling Marte playing winter ball

Starling Marte is playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic this off-season.

Fantasy Impact

Marte was limited to just 77 games in 2017 due to his lengthy PED suspension. He managed to hit seven homers and steal 21 bases during that time. Marte could wind up being a forgotten man in 2018 fantasy drafts, which would make him a value pick. He'll make his winter league debut on Wednesday.

Starling Marte not in Pirates' lineup Friday

Starling Marte is not in the Pirates lineup Friday against the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Looks like a routine day off for Marte. Jordan Luplow is playing LF and batting second in his place.

Starling Marte records three hits Sunday

Starling Marte went 3-for-5 with two RBIs, a run scored, and a stolen base in the Pirates' 5-2 win over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Marte bounced back from a slow stretch with a big performance to end the fantasy week. Today's performance is a good reminder of his upside, as things have been up and down for him since his return from suspension. At the very least, he should be a solid contributor in stolen bases and runs to close the season.

Starling Marte hits two-run homer Tuesday

Starling Marte went 1-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, and one run scored in the Pirates' 8-5 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Marte has started to flash some power once again as he now has two home runs over his past five games. He has also seen his average rise from .245 to .267 since August 12. That said, it appears that Marte is shaking off some of the rust that was apparent immediately after his return from an 80 game PED suspension.
