Noelvi Marte
18-Year-Old ShortstopSS
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Marte has top-five prospect upside, and this will be the last offseason to acquire him in dynasty leagues for a palatable price. He is on the Julio Rodriguez path -- a high-profile international signee ($1.55 million in 2018) who destroyed the Dominican Summer League (.309/.371/.511, nine HR, 17 SB in 65 games) and will be given an aggressive assignment for his stateside debut. He doesn't have as good of an approach as Rodriguez did at the same age, but Marte is a five-tool shortstop with at least 60-grade speed. He needs to work on using the whole field (23.4 Oppo%), but his 40.7 FB% is encouraging for a player who could develop 30-plus homer power. An 18-year-old who is already 6-foot-1, 181 pounds, Marte may have to move to third base, but his bat should profile anywhere. If he is as good as advertised, he should spend a good chunk of the year at Low-A, and if he hits there, his stock will explode. Read Past Outlooks

Marte will be a part of the Mariners' taxi squad this season, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
While prospects like Jarred Kelenic and Julio Rodriguez could get legitimate playing time in the majors as a part of Seattle's taxi squad, it seems unlikely Marte will get similar opportunities. He has never played stateside or above rookie ball, so while his future appears bright, his inclusion on the taxi squad is unlikely to result in notable playing time in the majors this season.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
In every July 2 international signing period, there are a few top players who already project as prospects who will be better in fantasy than reality. Marte, who signed for $1.55 million out of the Dominican Republic, is a prime example from the 2018 crop. He showcases a classic power-hitting swing from the right side, and may have as much home run and batting average upside as any international prospect in his class. Marte has the actions and a good enough arm for shortstop, but may eventually move to third base. He currently measures in at 6-foot-1, 181 pounds, but looks like he will add at least another 20-to-30 pounds in the coming years, so maintaining good eating habits and conditioning will be crucial if he is to reach his ceiling and not fall down the defensive spectrum. While he is a good runner now, that won't be a big part of his game by the time he reaches the majors in five or six years.
