Starling Marte News
New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte's (core) status for spring training is up in the air following core-muscle surgery last November. "It has not yet been determined which of those tracks Marte is gonna be on, but it should be determined early next month," SNY's Andy Martino said. "It's likely that Marte is gonna spend some time with the Mets' medical staff and the training staff and figure out where he's at coming back from that core surgery." It means that Marte may not be ready for Opening Day, but we'll know more next month. It was already announced earlier this month that he won't play in the upcoming World Baseball Classic. The 34-year-old veteran also missed the last month of the regular season with a hand injury, but Marte played well in his first year in Queens when healthy, slashing .292/.347/.468 with an .814 OPS, 16 home runs, 63 RBI, 76 runs and 18 stolen bases in 118 games.
New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte (core) underwent surgery on Tuesday to fix a core muscle injury "sustained in the second half of the season," according to the team. Marte is expected to be "without restriction" in spring training next year. He's expected to be recovered in around eight weeks and can then begin his offseason preparations for next year. The 34-year-old also fractured a finger in early September, and although he made it back for the Wild-Card Series against the San Diego Padres, he was still visibly in pain when swinging the bat. Marte made his second career All-Star squad in his first year in the Big Apple in 2022 by slashing a strong .292/.347/.468 with an .814 OPS, 16 home runs, 63 RBI, 76 runs scored and 18 stolen bases in 118 regular season games.
New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte will jump to second in the order for game two against the San Diego Padres and starter Blake Snell. This move signifies that Buck Showalter and the Mets believe Marte is fully healthy, and he certainly appeared to be in game one, where he gathered two hits and two stolen bases. With Marte moving to the two spot, Francisco Lindor will move down a spot and Jeff McNeil will move from the three spot to the six spot. Expect the Mets lineup for the rest of the postseason to remain similar to today's lineup barring injuries.
New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte had another successful season in 2022, slashing .292/.347/.468 with 16 home runs, 63 RBI, and 18 stolen bases in 505 plate appearances. The 34-year-old has always been known for his high averages with the potential for power and speed. While his 18 stolen bases were valuable, they were his lowest total since his rookie season in 2012 (excluding the shortened 2022 season). In terms of power, Marte did not impact the ball hard, with an exit velocity and hard-hit rate both in the bottom 20 percent of baseball to go with a 7.5-degree launch angle. Marte is currently being drafted at pick 78 overall, making him the 19th OF off the board. Given his age and batted-ball profile, it seems unlikely that Marte will be able to contribute meaningfully in HR. Further, it appears as though his stolen base numbers may be slowing down, while more players should be able to contribute in this category due to the upcoming rule changes. Overall, Marte should be a safe fantasy option, but his ADP seems to be giving him a bit too much credit regarding hypothetical production.
