2019 was an aberration ... the other four years are 16, 13, 18, and (projected) 15.  But he constantly goes for 24 to 30 ...

What a BAD season ... shocking ...

Rotowire:

Removed again for PR
July 8, 2022
Marte went 1-for-2 with two walks and was removed for a pinch runner in the eighth inning of Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Rockies.
ANALYSIS
It's been three weeks since Marte first suffered a hamstring injury, and Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo continues to play it safe. This was the second consecutive game he was removed for a pinch runner in the late innings. Marte has not played the field since returning from the injury.

Ketel Marte (2B) AZ - Mar. 14
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=13183

Marte didn't participate in Monday's team workout after experiencing left eye irritation, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Marte labeled the eye issue as a minor concern and said he expects to be back on the field Tuesday. The 28-year-old switch-hitter is expected to make a full-time move to second base during the upcoming season, after he primarily played center field in 2021.

Jim Bowden, trying to earn a paycheck during the lockout, has pondered The First Move Each NL Team Should Make When the Lockout Ends and posted his thoughts today at The Athletic.

Leading off...

Arizona Diamondbacks

Offseason needs: Relief pitching, defense

Biggest moves pre-lockout: Signed RHP Mark Melancon; acquired INF/OF Jordan Luplow

First move they should make post-lockout: Trade CF Ketel Marte to Marlins

The Marlins desperately need a center fielder, preferably one with the power and speed of Marte. And although the Diamondbacks don’t want to trade their best player, they’re not going to say no if they get a ridiculous prospect package, which the Marlins could provide if they wanted to. Perhaps a deal centered on top prospects such as outfielder JJ Bleday and left-handed starting pitcher Braxton Garrett would get Arizona’s attention. Marte, 28, is under team control for three more years, which puts his trade value at a maximum level. By the time the Diamondbacks are ready to contend again, Marte will be in his 30s; they won’t be able to get the type of return then that they can now.
