Starling Marte is ranked by many as the Pirates’ top hitting prospect. He lit it up in Spring Training this season, but was sent to AAA-Indianapolis after winning the Eastern League batting title last season in AA-Altoona.
It was the first time I had seen Marte in person and it is easy to see the tools he possesses. He lined a ball into the right field corner in his 2nd at-bat of the game and easily reached third base with a triple. For the game, Marte was 1 for 4 with the triple being his only hit. Below you will find all four of his at-bats.
