Starling Marte
(.282 – 11 HR – 33 RBI) was placed on the 15-day DL last week, retroactive to August 19th, but Marte’s return to the lineup is going to be longer than the 15-day stint. Marte does not need hand surgery but he said today that it will be two weeks before he can start swinging again, putting his return at least a couple weeks away, possibly longer. The addition of Marlon Byrd becomes even more important.
