  • Mets' Starling Marte: Won't require surgery

    President of baseball operations David Stearns said Wednesday that Marte (groin) won't need to undergo surgery during the offseason, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Marte landed on the injured list in early August due to a right groin strain and ended up missing the rest of the season as a result. Not requiring surgery is good news for Marte's spring training availability, although the 35-year-old outfielder is coming off his worst season at the plate statistically after slashing .248/.301/.324 with 28 RBI over 341 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Shut down for remainder of season

    Marte (groin) will not return for the Mets this season, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.

    Marte had been hoping to return to action at some point this week, but he didn't wind up playing any rehab games as previously scheduled, and the decision has been made to go ahead and shut him down. There's no indication that he's suffered a setback, but rather the Mets seem to have decided there's little incentive in pushing the veteran outfielder back for some relatively meaningless games. Marte will finish the 2023 campaign having slashed only .248/.301/.324 with five home runs and 24 stolen bases across 86 games.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: On track for final homestand

    Marte (groin) is scheduled to play a pair of rehab games Saturday and Sunday with Triple-A Syracuse, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    If all goes well in those two games, Marte should be cleared to return to the Mets' active roster for their final homestand, which begins Tuesday against the visiting Marlins. Out since early August due to a right groin strain, the veteran outfielder is currently getting simulated reps at the team's spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Traveling with team

    Marte (groin) will accompany the Mets on their road trip to Miami this week, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    While there's still no guarantee the outfielder will play again in 2023, the Mets remain optimistic Marte will be cleared before the end of September. The 34-year-old has been sidelined since early August due to a groin strain that could be connected to the core muscle surgery he underwent in November 2022, and his career-worst .625 OPS through 86 games this season also suggests he hasn't been fully healthy all year. With two years and over $40 million left on his contract, the Mets have to be hoping he's able to rebound in 2024.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Does full workout Wednesday

    Marte (groin) went through a full pregame workout Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Marte is now making steady progress in his recovery from the right groin strain that sent him to the injured list back in early August and told reporters Wednesday that he is aiming to return to the Mets' active roster for the final week of the 2023 regular season. When healthy this year, the veteran outfielder has slashed .248/.301/.324 with five home runs and 24 stolen bases across 86 games.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Responds well to physical therapy

    Marte (groin) said Sunday that he had a productive week of physical therapy in Philadelphia and remains optimistic that he'll return from the 10-day injured list before the end of the season, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The non-contending Mets likely won't be eager to bring Marte back from the IL unless he's 100 percent healthy, but he'll at least be given the chance to play again in 2023 if he remains free of setbacks as he navigates the rehab process for his right groin strain. However, if Marte fails to progress in his recovery as anticipated, he'll be at risk of undergoing surgery for the second offseason in a row. Marte previously had surgery last November to address injuries to both of his groins.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Getting physical therapy for injury

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said Marte (groin) will head to Philadelphia this week to take part in physical therapy, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.

    Marte was placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 7 with what the Mets classified as a right groin strain, but the extent of the injury still remains somewhat hazy. Showalter didn't offer much clarity on that front Monday, nor was the skipper willing to provide any real timeline for Marte to return from the 10-day injured list. Given that Marte underwent surgery last November to repair both of his groin tendons along with the fact that the Mets are out of playoff contention, it wouldn't be surprising if the 34-year-old remained sidelined for the rest of the season.
