Defensive ability keeping Leonys Martin in Rangers lineup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.”

Joey Gallo starting in center field for Rangers for Leonys Martin
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Joey Gallo will play a brand new position for the Rangers in Saturday's game. 

Gallo is in the starting lineup, playing center field. He had previously played third base and left field for the Rangers since being called up from Triple-A, but he said he's "never" played center, in the minors or amateur ball, per the Star Telegram.

Leonys Martin, who had started the previous 21 games in center, gets a day off.

Rangers looking for consistency from Leonys Martin
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Despite going hitless in his last four games (0 for 13), Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin contends he is doing a lot better since getting past a wrist injury he sustained in early May.

Even with his recent slide, Martin is still batting .303 with two doubles, two home runs and 12 RBI in his last 19 games.

“When you go to home plate you think about it [the wrist], and I didn’t want to get hurt again,” Martin said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “A couple weeks ago it started feeling good. I’m really happy.”

Martin began the season as the Rangers' leadoff hitter, but when he struggled in that role, he was moved to the bottom third of the lineup. The Rangers still believe in Martin, but they need him to find consistency at the plate.

“It’s just competitive at-bats,” manager Jeff Banister said. “We’d like for him to string at-bats together. I still think, in the end, Leonys possesses all those qualities to be a leadoff hitter. But you’ve got to be able to string them together to be consistent with them.”
