Starling Marte, Superstar?

37

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. While Marte did hit his tenth homer of the season and go 2-4 tonight he's far from a perfect prospect. But none the less in the latest installment of his 'Prospects Will Break Your Heart' series for BP Jason ranks the top centerfield prospects and there Marte is. I'd say it's the the most positive independent assessment of Starling I've read. If you're a subscriber check it out. It's certainly heartening given the dearth of position prospects in the system. The money quote which references Marte's ceiling as discussed by folks in the industry and about which Jason tweeted in earlier in the week: "If Marte even scratches the surface of that praise, he’s a first-division starter. If he reaches his ceiling, he’s a superstar."
