Marrero will start at third base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

After occupying the short side of a platoon at third base with Daniel Descalso for much of the season, Marrero's limited workload will only get smaller following Jake Lamb's recent return from the 10-day disabled list. Marrero will pick up just his second start in 13 games Wednesday while the left-handed Lamb and Descalso sit out with southpaw Brent Suter on the mound for Milwaukee.

Marrero went 0-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in the Diamondbacks' 4-2 win over the Padres on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Marrero has picked up the last four starts at the hot corner, but it's worth noting that the Diamondbacks have opposed left-handed starting pitchers on three of those occasions. As such, the lefty-hitting Daniel Descalso still seems in line to receive the bulk of the starts at the position until Jake Lamb (elbow) returns from the 10-day disabled list, at which point Descalso and Marrero will both fade into utility roles.

Marrero went 2-for-4 with a triple, two runs scored and an RBI on Saturday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Marrero has been in the lineup for three consecutive games, but hasn't produced much with the bat. Saturday's triple marked his first extra-base hit of the season, and he is hitting just .233/.250/.300 in 30 at-bats. Marrero's lack of ability at the plate combined with inconsistent playing time keeps him largely off the radar.

Marrero went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's 9-1 win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Marrero was initially credited with a three-run home run -- his first of the season -- in the top of the fourth inning, but the hit was later changed to a single following an appeal by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. Officials determined that Marrero passed teammate Alex Avila between first and second base, resulting in Marrero being called out after the first two runs scored. While the fluky baserunning gaffe was undoubtedly frustrating for Marrero, the scoring change likely didn't have many fantasy implications. As a part-time player who receives starts mainly on the strength of his defense, Marrero carries little appeal even in NL-only settings.

Marrero started at third base and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

With Jake Lamb (shoulder) hitting the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a sprained AC joint, Marrero received the first look at third base in his stead. Marrero has always been held in high esteem for his defensive abilities, but a career .210/.260/.309 will limit his fantasy upside if he ends up seeing semi-regular starts. For what it's worth, manager Torey Lovullo said he plans to mix and match at third base while Lamb is sidelined, meaning that Daniel Descalso, Ketel Marte and potentially Chris Owings could see more opportunities at the position.

Marrero was traded to the Diamondbacks on Saturday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old was fighting for an Opening Day roster spot with the Red Sox, but Boston ultimately opted to go with Brock Holt as their utility man instead, sending Marrero, who is out of options, to Arizona. The former first-round pick, who is out of options, never quite found his offensive stroke with the Red Sox, hitting just .243/.309/.330 across all levels in his six-year professional career. He'll now look to carve out a role as a utility man with the Diamondbacks.

Marrero (arm) will start at shortstop and bat seventh for the Red Sox in their exhibition opener Thursday against Northeastern University, Sean McAdam of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Red Sox shut Marrero down during winter ball in November after he experienced a sore arm, but it was always considered a minor injury and nothing that would affect his preparation for the upcoming season. Marrero's presence in Boston's first lineup of the spring adds credence to that notion, so look for the infielder to pick up plenty of at-bats this spring as he aims to win an Opening Day spot as a utility man.

Marrero has returned from winter ball due to a sore arm, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Marrero and Sam Travis (hip) both returned to Boston with what the team is describing as minor injuries. The 27-year-old appeared in 71 games for the Red Sox last season, compiling an unremarkable .211/.258/.333 line with 61 strikeouts in 188 plate appearances. He should be healthy for spring training, where he'll fight to make the Opening Day roster as a utility man.

Marrero went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer against the Orioles on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Since being recalled back on Sept. 3, Marrero had seen a slender total of seven at-bats before getting into Wednesday's lineup. As a reserve infielder with an unimpressive track record in the minors, Marrero holds nearly zero fantasy value.

The Red Sox recalled Marrero from Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Marrero saw extensive run at third base earlier in the season after Pablo Sandoval battled injuries and ineffectiveness before being released, but the promotion of prospect Rafael Devers and trade-deadline pickup of Eduardo Nunez have shored up Boston's weakness at the position. As a result, the glove-first Marrero is expected to serve as a utility infielder for the Red Sox as the season winds down, a role he's probably best suited for over the long haul.
