Return of Rangers' DeShields cutting into Martin's playing time
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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
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.”

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.
