Starling Marte out of the Mets starting lineup Thursday

New York Post

Starling Marte is out of the Mets’ starting lineup for Thursday’s game against the Brewers after getting hit by a pitch Wednesday.

Although he was hit by a pitch on his hand, Marte told reporters that he expects to be right back in the starting lineup Friday against his former Miami Marlins ball club.

X-rays also came back negative on the injury, which is obviously positive news.

The 33-year-old has been off to a good start to his opening 2022 season with the Mets, slashing .284/.329/.446 for 39 runs scored, seven home runs, 34 RBI, and eight steals in 53 games.

Marte joined New York in November in 2021 on a four-year, $78 million guaranteed contract that included a $5 million signing bonus.
