Former top prospect Andy Marte has been killed in a car accident in his native Dominican Republic.
Marte never reached expectations after being ranked as one of the top prospects in the game back in the early 2000s, but that hardly seems to matter right now. The former Brave, Indian and Diamondback had played the last two seasons in Korea. He turned just 33 last October. Sun, Jan 22, 2017 08:22:00 AM

Fox Sports 1's CJ Nitkowski reports that Andy Marte has signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Korean Baseball Organization's KT Wiz.

The former top prospect made it up to the majors with the D'Backs briefly this season after a great year at Triple-A that saw him bat .329/.388/.531 with 19 homers. Now 31, Marte will almost surely never get another long look in the big leagues.

Diamondbacks sent 3B Andy Marte outright to Triple-A Reno.

He had been designated for assignment but has cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. Marte made it up for six games with the D'Backs.

Diamondbacks designated INF Andy Marte for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-promoted Jake Lamb on the 40-man roster. Marte was just called up to the big club a week ago and batted .188 (3-for-16) with one home run and three RBI over six games. There's a decent chance the former top prospect will pass through waivers unclaimed.

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of INF Andy Marte from Triple-A Reno.

Back in the majors for the first time since 2010, the former top prospect was batting .330/.384/.513 with 13 home runs and 62 RBI over 102 games this season in Triple-A. Now 30 years old, Marte could get semi-regular playing time at third base now that Martin Prado is with the Yankees, at least in the short-term, but we're not expecting much of anything in fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks signed INF Andy Marte to a minor league contract.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training. The former highly-touted prospect hasn't appeared in the major leagues since the 2010 season. He did have a resurgence in 2013 between York in the Independent Atlantic League and Triple-A Salt Lake, slashing a combined .313/.373/.536 with 25 homers and 92 RBI in 122 games. It's a nice low-risk signing for the D'Backs.

Angels signed INF Andy Marte to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Salt Lake City.

Marte was batting .301/.367/.526 with 19 home runs and 74 RBI in 96 games this season for the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League. The 29-year-old hasn't played in the majors since the 2010 campaign.

The Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly reports that Andy Marte has signed with the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League.

A former top prospect, Marte didn't play in 2012 after batting an ugly .202/.278/.328 with seven homers over 97 games with the Pirates' Triple-A affiliate in 2011. Now 29, he's obviously not close to making it back to the big leagues.

Pirates reassigned 3B Andy Marte to minor league camp.

Also sent to minor league camp were LHP Brian Burres, RHPs Sean Gallagher and Tyler Yates, Cs Dusty Brown and Wyatt Toregas and INF/OF Corey Wimberly. RHP Daniel McCutchen was optioned to Triple-A. With Marte sent out, that means Steve Pearce has won a spot on the Pirates' bench. Burres is a fairly surprising cut with both Scott Olsen and Joe Beimel slated to open the year on the DL.

Andy Marte went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored Friday versus the Rays.

With Garrett Atkins and Josh Fields gone, it's down to Marte and Steve Pearce for a spot on the Pirates' bench. The team could keep both, but it doesn't seem likely. Marte remains the underdog, even though he's had a nice spring with a .364 average, six doubles and five walks in 33 at-bats.

Andy Marte went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI against the Phillies on Friday.

Marte is right there with Josh Fields behind Steven Pearce and Garrett Atkins in the competition for a spot on Pittsburgh's bench. It's possible that the team will carry two members of the group, but Marte would still be a long shot, partly because he's on a minor league deal and can be easily farmed out to Triple-A.

Pirates signed INF Andy Marte to a minor league contract.

The contract includes a spring training invite. Marte, 27, became a free agent after being removed from the Indians' 40-man roster last month. The former top prospect owns a meager .218/.277/.358 batting line in the big leagues and batted just .229/.298/.382 with five home runs and 19 RBI over 170 at-bats with the Indians this past season. He'll try to make the Pirates as a bench player.

Indians sent 3B Andy Marte outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Marte is now eligible to become a free agent and might do well with a change of scenery. Once considered a top infield prospect, he batted just .229/.298/.382 this year in 170 big league at-bats for the Indians.
Fri, Nov 5, 2010 09:21:00 AM

Andy Marte went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer to lead the Indians past the Red Sox in Fenway on Wednesday night.

Marte got a spot start at third base while Jayson Nix manned the designated hitter spot. He's hitting just .211 on the season -- but has only 90 at-bats. Marte appears destined for a utility man role after once being considered a top prospect with the Braves.
Wed, Aug 4, 2010 10:37:00 PM

Indians activated INF Andy Marte from the 15-day disabled list.

Marte missed a little over two weeks due to a non-baseball medical issue. The Indians haven't cleared up what exactly was plaguing him, but his versatility will certainly be welcomed back with open arms.
