SUN, MARCH 17, 2019 - Marte homered in his third straight start Sunday against Boston. The center fielder has also stolen three bases in Grapefruit League action. "He's swung the bat from a strong position," manager Clint Hurdle said. "When he's getting on, he's looking for opportunities to run, so he's healthy. He's seeing pitches. He's heading into a good position to start the season." Marte is expected to bat second in the lineup behind Adam Frazier on most occasions.
