  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Battling hamstring strain

    Marte suffered a strained hamstring while playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic, Mark Sheldon of reports.

    Marte will no longer be able to participate in winter ball, but he should be ready to go for the start of spring training. The 22-year-old infielder slashed .316/.366/.456 across 123 big-league plate appearances last year and is expected to begin 2024 as Cincinnati's primary third baseman.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Raking to wrap up season

    Marte went 4-for-5 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's 15-6 loss to the Cardinals.

    The 21-year-old is having a fantastic finish to the season, hitting safely in seven straight games and batting .355 (11-for-31) over that stretch with two of his three homers since his mid-August promotion to the majors. Marte is expected to be a key part of the Reds' future, and while his spot in the lineup has been secure to close out 2023 due to the absence of Matt McLain (oblique), the team will likely have to do something to alleviate its infield roster crunch in the offseason, either by trading a player such as Jonathan India or by shifting someone like Marte to the outfield.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Smacks second homer in blowout win

    Marte went 2-for-5 with a solo home run -- his second of the season -- and an additional RBI in Friday's 19-2 win over St. Louis.

    Marte slugged one of six Reds home runs on the night, one shy of matching the franchise single-game record. Cincinnati was able to keep its faint hopes for a wild-card spot alive with the win, and Marte has been an integral contributor to the team's postseason push. The 21-year-old rookie has recorded at least one hit in 14 of his last 15 starts and is slashing .357/.400/.471 in September.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Marte is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    Marte started the past three games and will receive a day off after going 3-for-13 with an RBI during that span. Christian Encarnacion-Strand will start at third base and bat fifth.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Not in lineup Tuesday

    Marte is out of the lineup Tuesday versus the Twins.

    Marte had made two consecutive starts at third base for the Reds, but Christian Encarnacion-Strand will get the nod there Tuesday as Elly De La Cruz covers shortstop. Marte, 21, is sitting on an impressive .304/.368/.405 batting line through his first 87 major-league plate appearances.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Logs three hits Friday

    Marte started at shortstop and went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's 5-3 win over the Mets.

    Marte delivered his second three-hit game in the last five starts. He slotted in at shortstop while Elly De La Cruz took a seat for the second time this week against a left-hander. As Reds manager David Bell guides the team during a playoff race, he has managed more tactically over the past week, such as playing lefty-righty matchups or sitting slumping players. One of those slumping is the switch-hitting De La Cruz, who is 1-for-23 against lefties going back to Aug. 23 and hitting .194 with a .526 OPS overall against southpaws. That slump is leading to more opportunities for Marte.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Two hits in return

    Marte started at shortstop and went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's 4-3 win over Detroit.

    Marte returned to the starting lineup for the first time since suffering a fractured nose during warmups prior to a game last Saturday. He had resumed playing Tuesday, when he scored the winning run as a pinch runner in the extra inning. This was Marte's first start at shortstop, as Elly De La Cruz was given his first rest day since the All-Star break.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Returns to lineup

    Marte (nose) is starting at shortstop and batting seventh Wednesday versus the Tigers in his return to the lineup.

    Marte scored as a pinch runner in Tuesday's win over the Tigers, but this will be his first start since he suffered a broken nose pregame Saturday. He's filling in at shortstop for Elly De La Cruz, who is getting a day off.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Scores as pinch runner

    Marte (nose) entered Tuesday's game as a pinch runner and scored a run in a 6-5 win over the Tigers.

    Marte made his first appearance since sustaining a broken nose during pre-game warmups Saturday. He replaced Nick Martini as the automatic runner in the top of the 10th inning, scored the eventual game-winning run, then played third base in the bottom of the frame. It's unclear if the Reds are confident enough to have Marte play an entire game, but he looks like he's trending in that direction.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Remains sidelined Tuesday

    Marte (nose) remains out of the lineup Tuesday at Detroit.

    Marte suffered a broken nose Saturday when he was struck in the face by a ball during pregame warmups, but he cleared the concussion protocol and apparently won't require a stay on the injured list. Nick Senzel is covering third base and batting second for the Reds on Tuesday.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Avoids concussion, is day-to-day

    Marte (face) has avoided a concussion and is considered day-to-day, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Marte was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup against the Cardinals after being hit in the face with a ball during pregame. He was treated for a cut and a bruise. He did not require any stitches, though, and precautionary concussion testing came back clean. "There's a chance he's back pretty soon," Reds manager David Bell said after Saturday's loss to St. Louis. Cincinnati is off Monday, so it's possible the team will hold Marte out until Tuesday just to be safe.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Sitting Sunday with broken nose

    Marte, who is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals, was diagnosed with a broken nose, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The 21-year-old was struck in the face while playing catch ahead of Saturday's contest and cleared the concussion protocol, but he's still managing a fractured nose. Marte wasn't placed on the injured list amid a flurry of transactions by the Reds on Sunday, so he may not require a trip to the shelf. He could play soon depending on his pain tolerance and comfort level.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Scratched from lineup

    Marte was scratched from Cincinnati's lineup ahead of Saturday's game against St. Louis, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Marte was playing catch with Elly De La Cruz before the game and got hit in the face by a throw when he wasn't paying attention. Spencer Steer will move to third base in Marte's absence, and Alejo Lopez will cover second base Saturday. Marte should be considered day-to-day until the Reds provide more information.

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Laces hit, steals home

    Marte went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 9-4 loss to St. Louis.

    Marte managed to steal home in the fourth inning after Willson Contreras tried to throw out Spencer Steer on a steal attempt at second base. He is the second Red to steal home this year after Elly De La Cruz achieved the feat July 8 against Milwaukee. Marte now has six steals and is slashing .254/.329/381 over his first 19 MLB games.

The highly regarded rookie is now hitting .255 with five doubles, one home run, seven RBI, six runs and five steals across his first 17 games (62 plate appearances).

  • Reds' Noelvi Marte: Collects fourth steal

    Marte went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 8-7 extra-innings win over the Diamondbacks.

    Marte has seen regular playing time since he was called up a week ago. He's hitting a modest .227 (5-for-22) with two doubles, one RBI and two runs scored, though he's also logged four steals. His speed was on display with 18 thefts over 89 contests in the minors this year prior to his promotion. Marte has mostly played at third base, moving Elly De La Cruz into a more permanent role at shortstop while Matt McLain handles second base.
