The center fielder of the Diamondbacks de Arizona, Ketel Marte, left tonight’s game Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies in the sixth inning with an apparent right leg injury; famous journalists Zach Buchanan of Athletic and Steve Gilbert of MLB.com were among those who reported.

Marte was running to first after hitting a grounder when he stopped and showed pain in his hamstring area. A trainer and manager, Torey Lovullo, helped him off the field. It goes without saying that any major injury to Mars would be a severe blow:

The 27-year-old won an All-Star selection and finished fourth in the 2019 National League MVP voting after posting a .329 / .389 / .592 all-star line with 32 home runs in 628 appearances in the dish.

Mars posted merely average numbers in 2020, but it’s off to a spectacular start to this season. In Arizona’s first six games, he’s hitting .462 / .500 / .846 with two home runs and four doubles.

Ketel was replaced in the outfield by Josh VanMeter, who took over right hand and Tim Locastro moved to center. The D-Backs currently do not have suspected starting right fielder Kole Calhoun, who is recovering from knee surgery, performed in early March.
