Miami Marlins center fielder Starling Marte suffered a non-displaced fracture of his left pinkie after getting hit by a pitch Wednesday, but there is optimism that he could continue playing, and he is considered day-to-day.

Marte, 31, was hit in the hand on a fastball by Chicago Cubs reliever Dan Winkler in the ninth inning of Miami’s 5-1 wild-card-opening win in Chicago. Marte was in obvious pain and quickly retreated down the clubhouse tunnel and underwent X-rays in the hand.

He was replaced by Monte Harrison.

Marte, acquired at the trade deadline from the Arizona Diamondbacks, hit .281 with 6 home runs, 27 RBIs and 10 stolen bases this season.

He was deemed to be “100 percent” by manager Don Mattingly entering the game after he was hit by a 94-mph fastball on the front of his helmet by New York Yankees pitcher Clarke Schmidt during Sunday’s regular-season finale.
