“He’s here and we could not be more excited,” the Reds said on social media.

The Reds acquired the infielder in the trade that sent pitcher Luis Castillo to the Seattle Mariners in 2022.

Marte spent time in Dayton with the Dragons in August 2022.

This marks the 139th Dragons player to make it to the big leagues. The team congratulated him on social media this afternoon.
