Pirates | Starling Marte placed on concussion DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:57:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Pittsburgh Pirates placed OF Starling Marte (head) on the 7-day concussion disabled list Wednesday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: With Marte sidelined, Travis Snider made the start in left field and was in the two-hole. Snider is likely to benefit the most from Marte's absence, and is a good short-term pick-up in NL-only leagues. In daily salary cap leagues, Snider has a minimal salary with most providers, and he could be a steal for a few days if he gets regular at-bats.

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:08:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (head) underwent a concussion test, and the team is waiting for the results of the test before placing him on the disabled list.

Pirates | Starling Marte to be placed on DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 12:27:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (head) will be placed on the disabled list, but it is not known if it will be the seven-day disabled list or the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Travis Snider may receive more playing time while Marte is out of the lineup. Josh Harrison could also receive some playing time in the outfield but could also play third base, depending on Pedro Alvarez's injury. Snider should help in NL-only leagues but may not have much value in mixed leagues.
