I’ll stick by the poor defense until I hear or see something better. I have a 4 game series in 3 weeks so we will see if there is a difference.

   In 3 games last week I saw him range too far to his right to field a ball right to Holt and they didnt get an out.
  Saw him miss a low throw/scoop
  Saw him flub 2 grounders,one he still got an out
  Saw him miss a line drive right to him that just went off his glove about head high
  Saw him freeze on a grounder between him and Holt,didnt go for it,didnt go towards 1b to cover
  and saw him look lost on 2 popups,one dropped in, one Mercer caught by 1b

  I also saw him make one scoop and make a decent catch running towards the stands in foul territory so it wasnt all bad but the bad far outweighed the good

Marte IS fast, isn’t he? Good to hear he is learning some plate discipline.

His defense was a pleasant surprise to me.
