RotoWire News: Marte may need an occasional day off early in 2017 as part of his continued recovery from an ankle sprain, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "We're still assessing that," head athletic trainer Todd Tomczyk said. (3/24/2017)

Profile: Back issues forced Marte to miss most of September and you have to wonder how much that affected his power. His home run total fell by more than half, as did his HR/FB rate, though he was coming off a career year in the power department. Still, his power declined to its lowest level ever. He made up for it though by swiping a career best number of bases and posting a career high BABIP that pushed his batting average above .300 for the first time. Assuming good health, I would bet his power rebounds to 2013-2014 levels, while his 2015 may prove to be his career year on the HR/FB front. He clearly still owns excellent speed, but in his late 20's, one would imagine it's going to begin to wane. So the right call would be to expect a dropoff in stolen base attempts, expecting closer to his previous two seasons. Depending on the health of his back, he should once again be good for low teens homers and 30+ steals. (Mike Podhorzer)

The Quick Opinion: Though the power regressed, Marte remains an excellent source of power and speed and manages to post consistently inflated BABIP marks, making him a batting average asset as well. His back issues are a concern worth monitoring, but health is the only thing that would keep him from another top 15 outfielder season.
