Marte is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds, according to the Reds' Jamie Ramsey.
Marte went hitless in four at-bats with three strikeouts Tuesday.
Marte has five walks in seven games after totaling 25 in 135 games in 2013.
Marte went 1-for-3 with three runs, a double and two walks Tuesday against the Cubs.

Marte doubled off the right-center field warning track Monday, going 1-for-3 against the Cubs.
Marte agreed to a six-year, $31 million contract with the Pirates on Wednesday, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.
Marte hit his first Grapefruit League home run Sunday and is batting .282 with three stolen bases and a 0:8 BB:K ratio.
The Pirates are attempting to sign Marte to a multi-year contract, but the outfielder has already turned down two offers, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Marte, who was thrown out stealing 15 times in 59 attempts last year, believes his experience will help in 2014. "I want to be more aggressive this year," Marte said. "That's me. That's my game. Sometimes we get bad jumps. Sometimes (it's) knowing the pitchers, sometimes it's the count. That's where experience comes in."
