How has he looked this year when healthy?  I'm already thinking about next year and what the keep price might be on him. Seems like the speed fell way off this year either because of age or manager.

Week away from returning
September 21, 2022
Marte (finger) said Wednesday that he's optimistic that he'll be able to return in time for the Mets' three-game series against Atlanta that begins Sept. 30, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Marte hasn't yet been cleared to throw or swing, but he hopes he'll be able to get clearance as early as Wednesday. The 33-year-old attempted baseball activities last week but was ultimately shut down since his finger remained sore.
Alex Patton Alex

We are 3/4 of the way through the season and he is on pace for a $32 season.

That would give him 32, 39, 30, 32, 32 going back five years if he ends there. That's a pretty steady pace unlike almost any other player these days.  Freeman and Trea Turner are the only NL hitters that match up on value with him over the past 5 seasons.

If you're a Mets fan, it's fun to watch the WPA+ climb in the boxscore. And if you're not, it's still interesting Lindor's home run barely changed the expected outcome.

Starling Marte (OF) NY-N - Mar. 21
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=11333

Marte suggested Sunday that the injury to his left side may not be just an oblique issue, Deesha Thosar of The New York Daily News reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The outfielder has been able to run and play defense but has yet to begin hitting, and it's possible Marte won't be ready for Opening Day. Both he and Mets manager Buck Showalter have indicated the issue was oblique soreness, but Marte also hinted that an MRI has picked up something else that might be related to the fractured rib he sustained last season. "I don't know. It's weird," Marte said. "They think it was my oblique. I think [so] too. But [the] MRI shows something a little bit different."

My biggest concern here is that Showwalter's 2018 Orioles were slightly below league average for SB, but they did have a high SB steal percentage. So maybe he let's Marte run?

Benchmarks, by the way, has the averages for all the Statcast metrics that kick off the player pages.

I am eliminating the surfeit of scans as they come to light in various comments.

Marte's HardHit%, Statcast version, is the same as the average of all players last year with at least 200 plate appearances. His average exit velocity is below average.

Maybe that's why he gets five pans and nary a pick in the forthcoming Guide.

One example (one of the shorter ones)

LEIBOWITZ PAN: Mets paying long-term for
a career year they will likely never see repeat.
Home run output has stabilized in the low 
to mid-teen HR/FB level. BABIP was out of
context with career and will decline. 

The Forecaster pans him big-time, calling him the biggest SB Overperformer in baseball in 2021.

Even Statcast pans him:

Statcast xBA: .270

Statcast xSA: .422

To which the market is going to say phooey in auctions this April, as well it should.
