Seattle Mariners

Marte signed with the Seattle Mariners as an international free agent on August 13, 2010. He made his professional debut in 2011 for the Dominican Summer League Mariners.[1] He played 2012 with the Everett AquaSox of the Class A-Short Season Northwest League and Clinton LumberKings of the Class A Midwest League. Marte spent 2013 with Clinton and the High Desert Mavericks of the Class A-Advanced California League.[2] He batted .295 with a .687 on-base plus slugging (OPS). Marte started 2014 with the Jackson Generals of the Class AA Southern League and was promoted to the Tacoma Rainiers of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League (PCL).[3] He finished the season hitting .304 with a .746 OPS and four home runs.[4] On November 20, 2014 Ketel was placed on the 40–man roster.[5]

The Mariners promoted Marte to the major leagues on July 31, 2015.[6] His performance led the Mariners to be comfortable with trading fellow shortstop Brad Miller.[7] However, Marte struggled in 2016, batting .259 with a .287 on-base percentage and striking out 84 times in 119 games. He also went on the disabled list three times. The Mariners attempted to trade for the Cincinnati Reds' Zack Cozart during the season.[8]

Arizona Diamondbacks

On November 23, 2016, the Mariners traded Marte and Taijuan Walker to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Jean Segura, Mitch Haniger, and Zac Curtis.[9] Marte began the 2017 season with the Reno Aces of the PCL. The Diamondbacks promoted him to the major leagues on June 28.[10] In his first playoff game in October 4 that same year, he hit two triples in an 11–8 Wild Card win over the Colorado Rockies, becoming only the 8th player to record two triples in the same playoff game and the first to do so in an ambidextrous manner. Marte was moved from shortstop to 2nd base by the Diamondbacks at the beginning of the 2018 season to make room for shortstop Nick Ahmed in the Arizona starting infield. In 2018, Marte led all of MLB in triples with 12.

Batting .316 with 20 home runs and 51 RBIs, Marte was named the starting second baseman for the 2019 Major League Baseball All-Star Game.[11]

Personal life

Marte is the nephew of Wilson Valdez, and is married to the cousin of Vladimir Guerrero Jr.[12]
