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.
