Banister: Leonys Martin will remain the Rangers' leadoff hitter
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Leonys Martin will remain the Rangers' leadoff hitter over Rougned Odor, despite his early season struggles, manager Jeff Banister said, per the Dallas Morning News.

On Tuesday, Bannister tweaked the lineup, moving Odor to the leadoff spot and sliding Martin to the No. 8 spot.

"Leonys is going to be our lead-off hitter," Banister said. "That structure has been a little inconsistent. More than anything else, I wanted to give it a different look. There are times when you give the lineup a different look."

Odor doubled in a run in the second inning, stole a base and scored a run to help his club secure an 8-2 win over the Angels on Tuesday. Odor has a hit in all but one of his last six games. He is hitting .172 (5 for 29) with three doubles, a home run and four RBI.

"I feel happy," Odor said. "I helped my team."

Martin reached base twice on Tuesday and is hitting .154 (5 for 39) with two RBI in nine games.

Rangers move Odor, Moreland to top of lineup
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor has been moved to the leadoff spot for Tuesday's game against the Angels.

Odor has batted in the bottom third of the lineup in each of the team's first eight games, hitting .160/.323/.360 in 31 at-bats. He said his approach will stay the same in the leadoff spot, FOX Sports Southwest reports.

Center fielder Leonys Martin, who has also struggled early, has been moved to the No. 8 spot.

"Leonys is going to be our lead-off hitter," manager Jeff Banister said, per the Dallas Morning News. "That structure has been a little inconsistent. More than anything else, I wanted to give it a different look. There are times when you give the lineup a different look."

In addition, designated hitter Mitch Moreland will bat second Tuesday. He has yet to bat higher than fifth this season while hitting .217/.321/.435 in 23 at-bats.

The Rangers are home underdogs (+104) against the Angels Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.

Rangers concerned with center fielder Leonys Martin's defense
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Rangers weren't too pleased with how center fielder Leonys Martin handled himself on defense on Opening Day, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Martin had a chance to leap into the center field wall on the opening play of the game when Athletics hitter Sam Fuld ripped a shot into the gap. Martin misjudge his jump, leading to a triple. Fuld later scored on a Ben Zobrist home run.

Rangers' Leonys Martin to get long look in leadoff spot this spring
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin will get the first chance this spring to bat leadoff, as he is penciled in to the top spot in the lineup for Wednesday's spring opener against the Royals.

The Rangers intend to take a long look at Martin in the leadoff spot this spring to see if they can move Shin-Soo Choo to a more traditional “production” spot in the batting order, manager Jeff Banister said.

“I want to make sure that mentally he is prepared to be able to lock down the leadoff spot vs. both right-handers and lefties,” Banister said, per The Dallas Morning News. “He does possess the skills to jump start our offense.”

Martin had a .354 on-base percentage in 164 plate appearances in the leadoff spot last year.
