Ketel Marte Next Team Odds

Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

  • 👀The Diamondbacks have yet to live up to their World Series run last season.
  • 📈Below, we provide odds on if GM Mike Hazen could move Ketel Marte ahead of the July trade deadline.
  • ⚾Expect the Seattle Mariners (+400) to be among the teams to check in on Marte next month.

It’s been another solid season in the infield for Arizona Diamondbacks veteran Ketel Marte, who currently has 14 home runs, 37 RBIs, an OPS+ of 146 and 4.0 WAR in 67 games with the team this year.  

But with the D-backs finding themselves 8.5 games out of first in the NL West (and one game out of the third and final Wild Card spot), it’s not inconceivable that GM Mike Hazen opts to start fresh at the deadline, which could lead the team to part with longtime starters like Marte.  

That reality across Arizona sports betting means that Hazen and his staff will likely be working the phones in the runup to the July 30 trade deadline, with Arizona buying or selling depending on which way the wind blows by late summer in the Valley.  

One thing to remember is that Marte is signed through 2027, with $16.6 million due in each of the next two years before receiving $14.6 million in 2027 and having a $13 million team option with a $3 million buyout in the 2028 MLB league year. 

With that in mind, BetArizona.com compiled some hypothetical odds on which MLB teams could vie for Marte’s services this year, though we still see the D-backs as the frontrunners to keep the 30-year-old in town right now.

Who Will Land Marte?

It’s hard to see Hazen punting on such a valued member of the franchise at the current moment, with Arizona having won six of 10 and sitting at 33-36 (.478) for the year, one game back of the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals for the final playoff berth in NL. 

That’s why we still list the D-backs as our top spot for Marte post-deadline, at -150, while the outside contenders to trade for the veteran utility man are up-and-coming squads with deep farm systems, such as the Seattle Mariners (+400), Kansas City Royals (+750) and Minnesota Twins (+900).

Marte arrived in Phoenix via Seattle, having signed as an international free agent with the Mariners back on Aug. 13, 2010, before being traded alongside pitcher Taijuan Walker for Jean Segura, Mitch Haniger and Zac Curtis back on Nov. 23, 2016.  

Now, the 30-year-old that’s wracked up 28.4 WAR in 1,035 MLB games has a shot at returning to the Northwest, though it’d likely take quite the haul of prospects to make Hazen trade his All-Star infielder.  

The other two contenders for Marte’s services are surprise playoff contenders, with the Royals sitting at 40-30 and needing someone to fill in for starting second baseman Michael Massey, who is on the IL with a back injury after posting 1.2 WAR across 29 games this season.  

Throw in the Twins, who are chasing down the Royals at 37-32 and also in need of a middle infielder to plug in alongside Carlos Correa, and you have the full picture of the teams that could swoop in before July 30 to land a player of Marte’s caliber this season.
