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.

Rangers OF Leonys Martin spent offseason working on baserunning
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin said one of his goals for the 2015 season will be to improve his baserunning skills.  He managed 31 stolen bases on 43 attempts in 2014 for a 72.1 percent success rate, which ranked 28th among major-league qualifiers, per The Dallas Morning News

Martin said he focused this offseason on getting better jumps when running. 

“It was 100 percent concentration on my baserunning,” Martin said of his offseason work. “I’ve got to do a better job.”

Martin added he also hopes to spend more time in the leadoff spot this season. He had a .354 on-base percentage in 164 plate appearances batting leadoff in 2014.

“I’ve been leadoff all the time in my career,” Martin said. “I’m ready.”

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."
