D-Backs' Marte forced to leave game vs. Rockies with apparent leg injury


Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder Ketel Marte left Wednesday's game against the Colorado Rockies with an apparent leg injury after attempting to beat a throw to first base.

Marte crumpled to the ground after passing the base and was ultimately helped off the field by trainers.

A diagnosis was not immediately available and it's unclear how much time, if any, Marte may miss.

Tim Locastro slid to center from right field following Marte's departure with Josh VanMeter taking over in right.

The 27-year-old entered Wednesday as one of baseball's hottest hitters. Through the first five games of the season, Marte was batting .522 with two home runs over 25 plate appearances.
