Pirates Starling Marte Suspended 80 Games - PEDs

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte has been suspended 80 games for violating the MLB performance enhancing drug policy.  Marte was ranked in the top 20 entering the fantasy baseball season and a top 10 outfielder.  He had an ADP ~25.

Marte was off to a rough start, batting just .241 with a .288 OBP and a 28.8 K%.  The Pirates as a team were struggling at the plate and were one of just 8 teams to have yet to score 50 runs.  It would appear as though Adam Frazier will fill the hole in the lineup with Andrew McCutchen moving back to CF.
