When will my prospects see some MLB playing time?

I'm in a 16 man keeper where you can have 2 minor leaguers. I've got King Felix and Andy Marte. I know that everyone sees Felix getting some playing time in the second half of the season, but does anyone have an idea of when Marte will see the bigs?

wow nice prospects for a 16 team league.... if marte can learn LF in AAA this year, you very well might see him in Atlanta sometime this summer..... but 3b is blocked in front of him for a while with chipper there, so he will either have to learn LF or be traded... i would think he will learn LF and possibly be this years mcab for the braves.....

Agreed. Marte might end up playing 3B, once the Braves end the Raul Mondesi/Brian Jordan thing in their outfield. The only problem is Chipper is probably very reluctant to give up his spot at 3B. At any rate, the Braves should end up making room for his bat this season.

I have a strong feeling about Andy taking over for BJ, but it'll take atleast a month to prove to Bobby that BJ is really that bad.

Marte is absolutely tearing up AAA at the moment, though, so I can see him having M-Cab like numbers, with a better OBP. Somewhere along the lines of a David Wright-esque splash would not be out of the question.
