Pirates | Starling Marte takes swings

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand) took swings in a simulated game Thursday, Sept. 12, and was looking good, according to manager Clint Hurdle. "I don't know how much pain he's going through," Hurdle said. "We're going to find out more about that as well. We'll find out what the level of pain was."

Fantasy Tip: Marte still isn't 100 percent, so for now, expect him to continue serving as a late-inning defensive replacement or pinch runner.
