      Mariners' Leonys Martin: Traded to Mariners

      Martin (hand) was traded from the Rangers to the Mariners on Monday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports. While other pieces are expected to be part of the trade, Martin is the big piece from the Rangers' side. He underwent surgery on his hand in late August, but that injury appears behind him at this point, and he could find himself as the primary center fielder for the Mariners next season. He'll have to prove himself better than James Jones, but he'll likely be given every opportunity to win the job.

      Rangers manager Jeff Banister has said despite center fielder Leonys Martin's offensive struggles, his defensive abilities were good enough to keep him in the starting lineup. However, Martin has been held out of the starting lineup for the last three games in favor of Delino DeShields, who recently returned from the disabled list. "We are allowing Delino to get back and get into the rhythm of playing and then we will see how things fit with Leonys and Delino," Banister said, per The Dallas Morning News. "I'm trying to see if we can spark up Delino now that he's active again."

      Defensive ability keeping Leonys Martin in Rangers lineup

      Although Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin continues to struggle offensively, manager Jeff Banister likes what he brings to the table defensively, which is why he remains in the starting lineup. "Leonys takes runs off the board," Banister said, per The Dallas Morning News. "I like premium defenders. They can impact the game with any ball hit to them. Where it becomes a challenge is when you don't score runs. If you aren't [scoring], I could see a lineup where you put all the bats possible in the lineup. If that puts a premium defender on the bench with the possibility of entering the game later to protect a lead, I could see that."
