Finally some really good news for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Starling Marte is back after recovering from a groin injury earlier this month in winter ball. Marte went 0-for-3 last night, but has an .810 OPS with three doubles, a homer and five steals.
MLB Prospect Portal has some new footage of Marte while he was with Altoona this year. We’re guessing that you probably missed them while stuffing yourself with turkey.
The bat position Marte uses is an interesting one and really stands out, but what the hell do I know. Here he shows some nice patience at the plate.
Marte drills this ball.
