    • Leonys Martin: Signs to play in Japan
      By RotoWire Staff

      Martin signed a one-year contract Sunday with the Chiba Lotte Marines of Japan's Pacific League, the Associated Press reports. The 31-year-old hit just .199 prior to being designated for assignment by Cleveland in late June and going unclaimed on waivers. He managed to hit for some power, driving in nine home runs through 65 games in 2019 (his career high is 15). It wouldn't be surprising to see Martin pursue a contract with a major-league club next year after refining his skills in Japan, but it's likely that his best days are behind him, as he'll turn 32 next March.

    • Leonys Martin: Becomes free agent
      By RotoWire Staff

      Martin has cleared waivers and elected free agency. No team decided to add Martin to their active roster via the waiver system, but he will now get the chance to decide where his next stop will be. Martin hit just .199 over 65 games with Cleveland this year, but he did hit nine home runs, so it remains to be seen if his next contract will be of the major- or minor-league variety.

    • Indians' Leonys Martin: Loses roster spot
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Indians designated Martin for assignment Saturday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. The writing was on the wall for Martin to notice a downsized role after he was left out of the lineup for the second straight day Saturday against the Tigers, but it's more surprising that he'll be removed from the roster entirely. That being said, the decision was a justifiable one given that Martin supplied a meager .619 OPS across 264 plate appearances this season. With Martin out of the picture, Oscar Mercado should take over as the Tribe's primary center fielder, while fourth outfielder Jordan Luplow could step into an everyday role after previously being limited to the short side of a platoon in right with Tyler Naquin.

    • Indians' Leonys Martin: Benched against righty
      By RotoWire Staff

      Martin is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Martin sat out the series opener Friday with a lefty (Matthew Boyd) on the mound for Detroit, but the outfielder's absence Saturday comes as more of a surprise with right-hander Spencer Turnbulll on the bump. Manager Terry Francona could be considering dropping Martin from the everyday lineup with the 31-year-old sitting on a hideous .199/.276/.343 batting line for the season.

    • Indians' Leonys Martin: Takes seat vs. lefty
      By RotoWire Staff

      Martin isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Tigers. Martin will head to the bench with a lefty in Matthew Boyd slated to toe the rubber for the opposition. Oscar Mercado draws the start in center field, allowing for Jordan Luplow to man left in Martin's absence.
