Starling Marte still out of the Lineup

Starling Marte will remain out of the lineup as he continues to deal with discomfort from being hit in an arm by a pitch against the Phillies on Thursday. “He’s improving to some degree, but not where he’s going to be able to start,” Clint Hurdle said. “The level of competing is still minimal at best.” Though he’s not extremely hampered by the injury, the discomfort...

Curve Balls No Longer Kryptonite for Starling Marte

Starling Marte has been red hot since returning from the Disabled List on August 5th. Over his last 32 games he has a triple slash line of .342/.402/.575. But there is more to these numbers from Marte than just a hot stretch. He seems like a completely different hitter. Marte has made adjustments to cut down on his whiffs considerably. Prior to his stint on the DL with a concussion...

Starling Marte’s Emergence

Of all the “breakout” talk going around the Pittsburgh Pirates, I think it’s safe to say Starling Marte’s breakout has been the most impressive lately.

Starling Marte doesn't care about money, signs with Pirates

Yesterday if you would have asked me if I think the Pirates would reach an agreement to extend Starling Marte's contract at some point during the 2014 season, I would have said absolutely not. I know that's true because Daniel Dudley asked me just that on TribLIVE Sports Radio last night. Fortunately for us, I was wrong. The Pirates inked Marte to a 6 year, 31 million dollar...
