News: Marte is back in the leadoff spot Thursday against Yovani Gallardo and the Brewers. Impact: The Pirates wanted to give Marte the day off Wednesday, but he came in to replace an injured Jose Tabata. Marte has three hits, including two doubles, in 14 career at-bats against Gallardo. He's struck out 18 times in his last 10 games.(RotoWire, )

News: Marte went 2-for-4 with a walk, three runs scored and pair of steals in Thursday's win over Milwaukee. He also struck out once. Impact: Marte is a dangerous hitter atop Pittsburgh's lineup, but he continues to strike out at an alarming rate, with 25 Ks in just 64 at-bats. If Marte could improve upon that strikeout rate just a little, it would obviously make him more of an effective player, both in real terms and from a fantasy perspective.(RotoWire, )

News: Marte is 2 for 9 with six strikeouts in the first two games of a series vs. the Reds. Impact: Marte has struck out 23 times - one behind former Pirate Garrett Jones for the highest total in the majors.(STATS, 11:19am)

News: Marte is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds, according to the Reds' Jamie Ramsey. Impact: Manager Clint Hurdle picked Wednesday for Marte's first day off of the season with the Pirates playing an early afternoon game and facing tough right-hander Johnny Cueto. Marte already has piled up 23 strikeouts on the season -- second-most in the National League -- and can probably benefit from the rest. Jose Tabata will get the start in left field in Marte's place.(RotoWire, )

News: Marte went hitless in four at-bats with three strikeouts Tuesday. Impact: He made a shoestring, back-handed catch to keep Pittsburgh in the game, but his plate discipline has fallen off. The leadoff hitting Marte has struck out 10 times without a walk the past five games.(RotoWire, )

Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Marte has five walks in seven games after totaling 25 in 135 games in 2013. Impact: While he's never going to be a bastion of plate discipline, any improvements could lead to increases in runs scored and stolen bases.

Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Marte went 1-for-3 with three runs, a double and two walks Tuesday against the Cubs. Impact: He also recorded his first two steals of the season, which was his most valuable asset in 2013.
