Pirates | Starling Marte progressing

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand, finger) is "slowly improving" from a right hand contusion and a sprained right ring finger. He isn't able to hold a bat with both hands yet, though, or throw without pain.

Fantasy Tip: Marte will probably make it back before the end of the regular season, but he's quickly running out of time to make an impact down the stretch for your fantasy squad. Keep him reserved and find other outfield options in the meantime.
