Found September 07, 2012 on Pirates Prospects:

Outfielder Starling Marte has been recalled from his rehab assignment and activated from 15-day disabled list. He is in the Pirates starting lineup batting second and playing in left field today.

Marte was placed on the disabled list on August 19 due to a right oblique strain that he suffered running the bases. Marte went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in his first rehab assignment on Tuesday as the designated hitter with State College. The rookie went a combined 2-for-7 with a walk, four runs and a RBI over two games with Triple-A Indianapolis, who are currently in the playoffs.
