Pirates | Starling Marte returns to action

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:36:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand) is back in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter Friday, April 24. Marte is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) homered twice earlier this week before sitting out with a minor hand injury Thursday. After a slow start, he's hitting .400 (8-for-20) with four home runs since April 17, and you should continue to ride him in a hitter's environment against a pitcher that must be precise to avoid trouble.

Pirates | X-rays negative for Starling Marte

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 18:57:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand) had x-rays on his right hand Wednesday, April 22, and tests were negative.

Fantasy Tip: Marte was hit by a pitch, and it appears he only has a bruise. FantasyScore owners will still want to be careful with him at $4,800 (or 9.6% of cap). Wait to see him officially play and make it through a full game without setbacks before plugging him back in.

Pirates | Starling Marte leaves after HBP

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 18:02:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand) left the game Wednesday, April 22, against the Chicago Cubs after being hit on the hand by a pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($4,800; 9.6% of cap) initially was able to stay in the game, but later replaced by Andrew Lambo ($1,600; 3.2% of cap). Marte should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and play without any lingering effects of his injury.

Pirates | Starling Marte heating up

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 09:55:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte hit his third home run in the last four games in a losing effort against the Chicago Cubs Monday, April 20. He went 1-for-4 with a run and RBI, but he's still only hitting .178 on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is off to a slow start in 2015, but his home run barrage recently could be a sign that he's ready to break out of it. Because of his slow start, he'll be a nice sleeper play at FantasyScore Tuesday night against Cubs starter Travis Wood.

Pirates | Starling Marte with day off

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 12:47:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene Tuesday, April 14. OF Corey Hart is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Hart ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) had a pinch-hit home run in Monday's win, so he's entering with a little momentum. However, he's more of a low-end outfield option at FantasyScore against Greene and the Tigers.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen out Saturday

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 12:15:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, April 11, because of left knee pain. OF Starling Marte will play center field and bat cleanup, with OF Andrew Lambo playing left field and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain how much time McCutchen ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) will miss or even if he'll be available to pinch-hit later in the game, so keep checking back for updates. Marte ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is a viable option for FantasyScore owners looking for a low-cost, high-potential outfielder but Lambo ($1,600) isn't worthy of consideration in daily leagues.
