Source – Miami Marlins outfielder Sterling Marte suffers from Pinkie’s fractured suffocation

Sources said Miami Marlins Center fielder Starling Marte suffered a non-displaced fracture of his left pinky after hitting a pitch on Wednesday, but there is optimism that he can continue playing, sources said ESPN’s Jeff Pasan and Jason Told Rogers.

Marte was hit on a fastball in the ninth inning in Miami’s 5–1 wild card-opening win at Miami by Chicago Cubs reliever Dan Winkler. Marte was in apparent pain and retreated quickly down the clubhouse tunnel.

He was replaced by Monte Harrison.

The Marlins said that Mart had to undergo an X-ray after an injury after the game.

Marte, acquired at the trade deadline from the Arizona Diamondbacks, hit .281 with 6 home runs, 27 RBIs and 10 stolen bases this season.

He was deemed “100%” upon entering the game by manager Don Mattingly, after being hit by New York Yankees pitcher Clarke Schmidt in front of his helmet at a top speed of 94 mph during Sunday’s regular season finale.
