2019 Fantasy Outlook
Marte got a chance to play close to every day in the major leagues in his age-24 season, and the final numbers were fine if unspectacular. He struck out just 25 more times than he walked in 580 plate appearances, and he added more than 40 points to his ISO. That rate-power boost came in large part thanks to his major-league-leading 12 triples. For a player with his pure speed, he sure didn't attempt many stolen bases as manager Torey Lovullo took a more conservative approach on the basepaths. But at least when he did run, Marte was successful (6-for-7). In total, his offenses contributions added up to a 104 wRC+, so better than league average. It's tough to bank on Lovullo changing his philosophy in the running game, but it's possible he swings more to the aggressive side again after Arizona tore it down this offseason. Either way, Marte should be useful on volume alone. The dual eligibility (shortstop and second) helps his case. Read Past Outlooks
