Marte went 3-for-8 with a double and a stolen base over the weekend since returning from the effects of a migraine headache Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Although Marte drove a double to right-center Sunday, he's totaled only seven extra-base hits in his last 118 plate appearances. Fortunately for fantasy owners, the outfielder is running at nearly every opportunity -- he's already swiped 13 bases in July, his highest monthly total in the majors and ranks second overall with 34 stolen bases.

Marte supplied all the Pirates' offense Sunday, going 3-for-7 with a walk, a double, a stolen base and two RBI including a solo home run in a 18th inning of a 2-1 win over the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

It was his first home run since June 14 and first multi-hit game in July, as Marte finally shows signs of shaking out of the slump that had him hitting just .190/.292/.190 in 42 at-bats on the month heading into Sunday. Despite the weak slash line however he's still been active on the basepaths, as the steal was his 11th in July and 32nd on the season.

Marte (foot) is in the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Marte was able to return to the lineup Friday and collected two hits in the Pirates' win, manager Clint Hurdle expressed some concern that Marte seemed to be favoring the foot as the game wore on. Fortunately, the issue will not force him back to the bench Saturday, but it remains something to keep an eye on in the days ahead.
