Leonys Martin to play against left-handers
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin was in the lineup against left-hander James Paxton Sunday against the Mariners, and according to the Dallas Morning News, that'll be the norm for the rest of the season.

"I want to see Marty play," interim manager Tim Bogar, who took over for Ron Washington Friday, said. "I want to know that he's going to be our everyday center fielder next year."

Martin went 3 for 4 with a triple, a stolen base and a run scored. He's now batting .230 against lefties compared to .295 against righties.

Four-hit game comes at opportune time for Leonys Martin
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin totaled a career-high four hits Tuesday against the Rays. The career night came at an opportune time as Martin was mired in a big-time slump, batting .111 (6 for 54) in his previous 16 games.

"I'm just trying to keep fighting every single at-bat," Martin said, per FOX Sports Southwest. "Sometimes I need to try and see as many pitches as I can to get on base. That's my job."

Rangers manager Ron Washington explained Martin's struggles are due to the fact he has been chasing bad pitches and pulling most of the pitches when he does make contact. He has become a predictable hitter.

"He's just got to make an adjustment, that's all," Washington said. "When you're young and inexperienced like Martin is, although he's been three and this is his fourth year, he's still inexperienced. The league makes adjustments. He's got to make adjustments. Marty's just slow in making adjustments. He's just got to make a little adjustment, swing at better pitches and don't try to do too much with the pitches that he's seen."

Leonys Martin goes deep again in loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin has tapped into some rare power recently, as he homered for the second time in three days Tuesday against the Astros.

Martin went 2 for 3 with a pair of extra-base hits Tuesday, including his fifth home run of the season in the second inning. He added a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning to finish the game with two RBI and one run scored.

Martin is hitting .274/.333/.391 in 281 at-bats, while ranking fifth in the American League with 17 stolen bases.

Leonys Martin scores thrice in defeat of Twins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin got quite familiar with home plate Thursday in Minnesota - and not just as a batter. He crossed it three times in the victory.

Martin walked in the second inning, then doubled in the sixth and eighth. He scored after each to give him two three-run performances in the last six games. His two doubles doubled his output for the season.

Poor track record against lefties has Leonys Martin out
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It was not a neck problem that motivated Ron Washington to bench center fielder Leonys Martin on Thursday against Tigers left-hander Robbie Ray. It was a lack of production against lefties that caused him to be replaced at that position and in the leadoff spot by Daniel Robertson, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Martin is batting just .234 with a .280 on-base percentage against southpaws this season and is 2 for 20 against them on the road. He owns a .183 batting average against all pitchers on the road in 2014.

"I'm just trying to put together the best lineup I have with the roster I have," Washington said.

Martin has 29 hits in 95 at-bats against right-handed pitching this season.
