Fantasy value of Pirates lineup
Flanking McCutchen are speedy defenders Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco, each owned in 100 percent of ESPN standard leagues, but each a tad flawed. Marte homered twice in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves, but that brings his season total to just eight. He is not much of a power hitter, and while he's raised his grisly walk rate a tad since 2013, he's not running as much, either. Marte is worth owning but I actually moved him in a keeper format, because it's tough to see much statistical upside from last year. He isn't quite a top-30 outfielder this year.
