Marte Exceeding Expectations

Almost halfway through his first season with the Binghamton Mets, third baseman Jefry Marte is continuing to improve upon his game. The Dominican Republic native was the youngest member of this B-Mets team until the recent call-ups from St. Lucie, and though he just turned 21 years old on Thursday, Marte is exceeding expectations.

"He's been good so far this season," manger Pedro Lopez said. "I've been impressed with how he's handled himself. This year coming in we thought he was going to have a harder time, especially at the plate, but he's done a good job.

"He's been one of the most consistent hitters we have had in the lineup this year and hopefully it stays that way."

Lopez isn't the only one who is impressed with Marte's ability and consistency; hitting coach Luis Natera shares the sentiment.

"Well, I've seen a lot of improvement," Natera said. "I've never had Marte before and he does everything we ask him to do and he improved a lot handling the inside part of the plate.

"He had trouble with it in the beginning and he did a good job of improving in that area, and I'm really happy with the job he's doing. We thought he would have a harder time at this level, but he's handled it well."

One thing both Lopez and Natera stress is Marte's plate discipline, as he has improved steadily. If he continues the pace set in this first half, he is likely to have cut down his strikeouts by over twenty from last season. And for Marte, his time in Binghamton is all about getting better, so every time he takes the field he tries to do just that.

"I feel like my season's been really good," Marte said, "I just try to do my hundred percent in every way, and I feel like I've been doing that. You know I work hard everyday, and I try to keep getting better at everything."

So far his numbers have reflected his work ethic. He is hitting .277 with six home runs and 35 RBIs, as well as boasting an OPS of .928 with runners in scoring position. But while his offense is on track to overtake his numbers from last season in St. Lucie, his defense continues to be a problem. Marte currently leads the team with ten errors at third base.

"He still needs to work on his defense," Lopez said of the ballplayer, "and just overall game. I mean here's a kid that's only 20 years old so I think most definitely his defense - he needs to work a little more on that, and then he's gotta keep on working at the plate in order for him to be successful at a higher level."

Marte too, is aware of his defensive issues, noting it as an area of concern and practice.

"I need to work on my defense," he said. "I want to be much better and be consistent so I've been working on that a lot, just making sure I improve."

Marte's self-awareness is a good trait for a player to have, and his knowledge of the game is something Lopez touts.

"If you look at him he's a quiet kid, but he's also smart," the manager said. "He might not say much but he's got an idea what he's trying to do at the plate, and I think he'll figure it out, and I think he's gonna end up hitting some home runs.

"I know the power is the last thing for a player to develop, but he's getting there. He's hit some home runs, and hopefully he keeps on doing what he's been doing so far to this point, and I think he's gonna be okay."

Already Marte has hit six home runs, leading the team since Matt den Dekker's departure, just one shy of his total last season. With ten doubles and two triples to accompany that, when Marte hits his stride he will be a scary hitter to face.

"I think he'll continue to improve," Natera stated. "I hope he has the same second half as the first half. To me he's doing well, and we're going to see some more power come later in the year I think."

His defensive struggles as well as his issues with discipline at the plate might stem from his young age, something Natera suspects.

"He needs to improve his concentration and play the game the same way every day. Sometimes his concentration level is not there and I think he needs to improve that.

"His plate discipline needs to be improved. Sometimes he chases bad pitches, but that's okay, his age is maybe a part of that, but he's gonna be okay."

Marte just turned 21 years old as he gets older and his game matures, the kinks should smooth out. His commitment to the game should help with that too, and as his improvement over the years has shown, he is most likely going to get better and better with age.

"I've improved a little bit on everything, defensively and at the plate, and I just want to continue to do that. I just want to finish strong, and make sure I finish better than I did last year, so I can be able to help out the team," Marte concluded.
