Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Starling Marté has announced the death of his wife Noelia. While no official cause of death has been announced, Marté says that his wife had a heart attack.
Marté posted the news on his social media account on Monday.
“Today I go through the great pain of making public the unfortunate death of my wife Noelia, due to a heart attack,” Marté wrote on his Instagram account. “It is a moment of indescribable pain. On behalf of my family, I am grateful for the expressions for esteem and solidarity in this difficult time.”
In the Diamondbacks story on her death, MLB Network Insider Jon Heyman said that Marté’s wife recently broke her ankle. She was reportedly waiting to have surgery when she had the heart attack.
She is survived by Marté and their three children. They are two sons; Starling Jr. and Smerling, and their daughter Tiana.
“We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic passing of Noelia Marté,” the Diamondbacks said in a statement. “Starling and his family are part of the D’Backs family and we will do all we can to support him and their children during this incredible difficult time.”
Marté has not even played in a game yet with the Diamondbacks. The 31-year-old Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic native was acquired in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates on January 27, 2020.
In exchange for Marté, the Pirates acquired minor leaguers Brennan Malone, Liover Peguero, and an International bonus slot money.
He spent eight seasons with the Pirates before the trade to the Diamondbacks. In spring training, Marté appeared in eight games with a .200 batting average including one RBI in 20 at-bats.
