  • Mets' Starling Marte: Swipes third bag

    Marte went 2-for-5 with a walk, two runs scored and a stolen base in Thursday's win over Atlanta.

    After a rough 2023 in which he never seemed to be 100 percent healthy, Marte has been in much better form to begin the current campaign. The 35-year-old is slashing .271/.340/.354 through 12 games with one homer, three steals, three RBI and eight runs, and he's been moved up to the second spot in the lineup the last couple games. Marte's fantasy outlook would be much improved if he can stick at the top of the order.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Belts homer during loss

    Marte went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Friday's 3-1 loss to Milwaukee.

    Marte was the lone bright spot in a Mets lineup that otherwise went hitless Friday and produced just two additional baserunners. Expectations for the 35-year-old outfielder are low after he posted a .625 OPS last season, but hitting a home run off Freddy Peralta could be a sign Marte is a lot healthier to begin his 2024 campaign.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Spring struggles continue

    Marte went 0-for-2 in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

    Getting the start in right field and batting fifth, Marte flied out to center field in the second inning before popping out to second base in the fourth. The Mets were hoping the 35-year-old outfielder would return to form after a healthy offseason, but so far this spring Marte is batting a worrying .091 (2-for-22) with zero extra-base hits or steals and a 1:3 BB:K. He's still locked into the starting role in right field and has time yet in camp to turn things around, but after he posted a career-worst .248 batting average and .625 OPS in 2023, expectations for Marte have never been lower.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Set for Grapefruit debut Wednesday

    Marte (groin) will make his Grapefruit League debut Wednesday against the Cardinals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Marte has struggled to stay healthy since undergoing double groin surgery last offseason, but he played in the Dominican Winter League this offseason and reported to spring camp healthy. The veteran outfielder played just 86 games in 2023 and slashed a lackluster 248/.301/.324.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: No worries about lower body

    Marte reported to camp fully healthy and appears to have put last season's groin issues behind him, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    A stint in the Dominican Winter League offered further proof that the 35-year-old outfielder is healthy again, as he stole two bases in 11 postseason games for Leones del Escogido while posting a .388 OBP. Marte underwent core muscle surgery in November 2022 and never seemed to fully bounce back, eventually suiting up for only 86 games in 2023 with a career-worst .248/.301/.324 slash line. He's never been an iron man -- Marte's topped 600 plate appearances only twice in his career, and not since 2018 -- but if he feels like himself again, he might produce something closer to the .301/.365/.463 line he delivered in 2021-22 while averaging 516 PAs.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Making debut in winter ball

    Marte (groin) is making his Dominican Winter League debut Wednesday with Leones del Escogido, Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.

    Marte has been practicing with the club and is now in its lineup for the first time, batting second and playing right field. It will be the 35-year-old's first game action since Aug. 5, as his season ended prematurely due to a nagging right groin injury. Marte was considered healthy heading into the offseason, but playing some winter ball should provide him and the Mets with some peace of mind heading into spring training, assuming he has no setbacks. He was limited to only 86 games in 2023, producing a career-low .625 OPS.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Expected to play winter ball

    Marte (groin) is expected to see some game action in the Dominican Winter League soon, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    While no firm plan for Marte's first winter ball game has been established, he's been practicing with Leones del Escogido and it sounds like playing in games is imminent. Marte's last regular-season game with the Mets came on Aug. 5, as he was ultimately shut down with a nagging right groin injury. He didn't require surgery and is now considered healthy, but the 35-year-old wanted to knock off some rust in winter ball. The Mets are hoping for a bounce-back campaign from Marte in 2024, but he'll head into the season as a major health risk.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Won't require surgery

    President of baseball operations David Stearns said Wednesday that Marte (groin) won't need to undergo surgery during the offseason, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Marte landed on the injured list in early August due to a right groin strain and ended up missing the rest of the season as a result. Not requiring surgery is good news for Marte's spring training availability, although the 35-year-old outfielder is coming off his worst season at the plate statistically after slashing .248/.301/.324 with 28 RBI over 341 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Shut down for remainder of season

    Marte (groin) will not return for the Mets this season, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.

    Marte had been hoping to return to action at some point this week, but he didn't wind up playing any rehab games as previously scheduled, and the decision has been made to go ahead and shut him down. There's no indication that he's suffered a setback, but rather the Mets seem to have decided there's little incentive in pushing the veteran outfielder back for some relatively meaningless games. Marte will finish the 2023 campaign having slashed only .248/.301/.324 with five home runs and 24 stolen bases across 86 games.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: On track for final homestand

    Marte (groin) is scheduled to play a pair of rehab games Saturday and Sunday with Triple-A Syracuse, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    If all goes well in those two games, Marte should be cleared to return to the Mets' active roster for their final homestand, which begins Tuesday against the visiting Marlins. Out since early August due to a right groin strain, the veteran outfielder is currently getting simulated reps at the team's spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Traveling with team

    Marte (groin) will accompany the Mets on their road trip to Miami this week, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    While there's still no guarantee the outfielder will play again in 2023, the Mets remain optimistic Marte will be cleared before the end of September. The 34-year-old has been sidelined since early August due to a groin strain that could be connected to the core muscle surgery he underwent in November 2022, and his career-worst .625 OPS through 86 games this season also suggests he hasn't been fully healthy all year. With two years and over $40 million left on his contract, the Mets have to be hoping he's able to rebound in 2024.
