A few highlights
Jefry Marte played the 2010 season in better shape than in 2009. ... Still noticeable in 2010 were his muscular shoulders, forearms and lower half which leaves additional room to fill out as he matures.Offense:
Just when I was ready to write him off, something clicked. Instead of flailing wildly at offspeed pitches, he stopped chasing and began forcing pitchers to throw fastballs in the zone....Marte has plenty of start-and-stop in his timing mechanism and lets an awful lot of power go to waste during his weight transfer. This has led to a slugging percentage of a middle infielder, not corner slugger which he needs to be.Conclusion:
Is Jefry Marte a surefire big leaguer? No, but he did make significant strides in 2010 and has somewhat redeemed himself as a prospect.
