He was also less aggressive at taking the extra base...65% of the time last year...just 43% this year.

The operative words here are "when healthy" and what that means. As a Met fan and New Yorker I saw most of his season. We know about the broken finger at the end but he also had a pulled groin that we eventually heard about, but I'm pretty sure he had some leg  (hamstring? calf? hip? ) or groin issues for months.

I love the guy and had him for the sbs but the power was a pleasant surprise. But on the running side I saw two things. His caught stealings were way up this year. In a combined 2021 between Miami and Oakland he stole 47 bases with only 5 caught stealings. This year he had 18 steals and was caught 9 times. It seems unlikely to me that he simply lost his elite speed.

I don't have it at my fingertips but again as a Met fan I am very aware that he hit into a shit-ton of double plays. I also saw him not run very hard on grounders but to me it did not seem that he was dogging it. It seemed more likely to me that he was told not to run too hard out of the box because he might aggravate whatever leg/groin issues he was dealing with and the team surely felt it was more important to have him in the line-up and the outfield.

I'm betting he gets healthy with five months off.

How has he looked this year when healthy?  I'm already thinking about next year and what the keep price might be on him. Seems like the speed fell way off this year either because of age or manager.

Week away from returning
September 21, 2022
Marte (finger) said Wednesday that he's optimistic that he'll be able to return in time for the Mets' three-game series against Atlanta that begins Sept. 30, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Marte hasn't yet been cleared to throw or swing, but he hopes he'll be able to get clearance as early as Wednesday. The 33-year-old attempted baseball activities last week but was ultimately shut down since his finger remained sore.

We are 3/4 of the way through the season and he is on pace for a $32 season.

That would give him 32, 39, 30, 32, 32 going back five years if he ends there. That's a pretty steady pace unlike almost any other player these days.  Freeman and Trea Turner are the only NL hitters that match up on value with him over the past 5 seasons.

If you're a Mets fan, it's fun to watch the WPA+ climb in the boxscore. And if you're not, it's still interesting Lindor's home run barely changed the expected outcome.

Starling Marte (OF) NY-N - Mar. 21
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=11333

Marte suggested Sunday that the injury to his left side may not be just an oblique issue, Deesha Thosar of The New York Daily News reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The outfielder has been able to run and play defense but has yet to begin hitting, and it's possible Marte won't be ready for Opening Day. Both he and Mets manager Buck Showalter have indicated the issue was oblique soreness, but Marte also hinted that an MRI has picked up something else that might be related to the fractured rib he sustained last season. "I don't know. It's weird," Marte said. "They think it was my oblique. I think [so] too. But [the] MRI shows something a little bit different."

My biggest concern here is that Showwalter's 2018 Orioles were slightly below league average for SB, but they did have a high SB steal percentage. So maybe he let's Marte run?
