Diamondbacks Place Ketel Marte On 10-Day Injured Record, Recall Andrew Younger
The Diamondbacks have positioned Ketel Marte on the 10-day injured listing with a proper hamstring pressure, the group introduced. Andrew Younger has been recalled from the Taxi Squad to take his roster spot.
It is a powerful blow for the Diamondbacks, who’re off to a 2-Four begin this season. Marte is off to an unbelievable .462/.500/.846 begin to the season, already posting 0.7 fWAR in six video games. The long-term outlook is as of but unclear. That stated, the preliminary plan was to have Marte assessed with an MRI tomorrow in Phoenix earlier than making an choice, per MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert (through Twitter). That they went forward and made the transfer previous to that analysis isn’t a fantastic signal.
Younger, 26, got here to the Diamondbacks from the Cardinals as a part of the Paul Goldschmidt deal. He made his Main League debut final season with 34 plate appearances throughout 12 video games. Younger, like Marte, can transfer across the diamond defensively. Tim Locastro is taking part in centerfield immediately, the place Marte began every of the primary six video games.
