The Pirates will promote Starling Marte on Thursday.
The 23-year-old Dominican outfielder has registered a solid .286/.348/.500 batting line with 12 home runs, 20 doubles and 13 triples in 98 games this season at the Triple-A level. Marte has also swiped 21 bases, and could be a factor right away in deeper mixed fantasy leagues. The Pirates are truly going for it.

A nice power/speed combo, but I don't see him batting for a high average. He walks a decent amount, though. He could certainly be productive for the remainder of the season as long as AVG isn't a concern. Love the 24 SB to 5 CS this season, and he's 30 of his last 36 attempts. He could also bat .220 and strikeout twice a game.SpecialFNK wrote:Element wrote:Brett Jackson was pulled tonight. Reed Johnson traded. Looks like he's on his way.
if Jackson is coming up, I assume it would be to get playing time and not sit on the bench?
very high K rate in the minors. 34% this season. ouch.
but impressive other numbers. 15 HR/24 SB.
Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer indicated Tuesday that prospect third baseman Josh Vitters is likely to be called up from Triple-A Iowa in the near future.
Vitters, who turns 23 later this month, is hitting .296/.349/.496 with 15 home runs, 63 RBI and an .846 OPS in 106 games this season at the Triple-A level. There are serious questions about his plate discipline, but he should get a look as the Cubs evaluate their internal options for 2013. He might be worth a stash in NL-only formats.
