I love Starling Marte. I think there's a chance that he'll really break out. A lot of people have rightfully pointed to his bad K rate and BB rate but perhaps too much has been made of it?
I was able to come up with a number of big name players who had similar K and BB rates. I won't try to draw any direct comparisons but I do think that he has been talked down too much.
The predictions on Fangraphs range from as low as .269/.311/.428 (Zips) to as high as .297/.336/.479 (Bill James)
His preseason - not that I put much weight on preseason stats mind you - .375/.423/.542 (.965 OPS) but that doesn't include todays 2/3 with a triple.
Oh and he's also speedy, good with the glove and he's got a good arm.
