Leonys Martin: Signs to play in Japan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin signed a one-year contract Sunday with 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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Catches breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

Martin has registered a base knock in five of his last seven contests, but he's in line for a night off. Oscar Mercado will start in center field and bat second in Martin's stead.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Launches ninth homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and a walk in Friday's game against the Tigers.

Martin handed his team a two-run lead in the fourth inning with a three-run blast to right field, his ninth long ball of the season. However, the 31-year-old is slashing a dismal .206/.285/.358 through 60 games this season, so he's seen his fair share of struggles at the plate to this point.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Sitting vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Martin will retreat to the bench Wednesday with left-hander Martin Perez starting for the Twins. In his place, Oscar Mercado is covering center field, with Jordan Luplow and Jake Bauers starting in right and left field, respectively.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Cranks seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer to provide the Indians with a three-run cushion in their 5-2 win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Martin connected off Ivan Nova in the seventh inning for his first home run since May 11. The 31-year-old hit just .214 with one homer and two steals in May and now holds a .219/.296/.359 slash line for the season.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is not in the lineup Thursday against the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Martin will retreat to the bench for the second time in three games as the Indians face another left-hander in Manny Banuelos. Given his .495 OPS against southpaws this season (compared to his .722 OPS against right-handers), Martin could continue to sit against same-handed pitchers. Oscar Mercado is starting in center field Thursday, with Greg Allen getting the nod in left field.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is not starting Tuesday against Boston, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

Despite an unimpressive .228/.305/.361 slash line, Martin has remained a constant in an unstable Cleveland outfield, starting 48 out of 54 games. Oscar Mercado gets the nod in center field on this occasion.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Sits Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is not in Saturday's lineup against the Orioles, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Martin is hitting .250 with a 34.1 percent strikeout rate over his last 10 games. Jordan Luplow will start in right field with a lefty (John Means) on the hill for Baltimore, while prospect Oscar Mercado gets the start in center field, hitting ninth.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Hitting ninth again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin will start in center field and bat ninth Sunday against the Athletics, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Martin will hit at the bottom of the order for the third game in a row as the Indians experiment with him as a de facto second leadoff hitter. The low placement in the lineup didn't hinder Martin in Saturday's 3-2 loss, as he went 2-for-4 with a home run while driving in both of the Tribe's runs on the day.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Benched in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Martin recently overcame a sore hamstring, so manager Terry Francona is likely just granting him some rest after back-to-back starts. Jordan Luplow will replace Martin in center field and bat fifth in the series finale.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Returns to starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (hamstring) is starting in center field and batting seventh Tuesday against the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Martin missed two games due to hamstring soreness, but he'll return to action Tuesday for the second matchup of the series. He'll aim to get back on track at the dish, as he's batting .100 with two solo homers over his past 10 contests.

May 6, 2019 03:32 PM
Indians' Leonys Martin: Expected back Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Terry Francona said Martin (hamstring) will be back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Martin is out of the lineup for a second consecutive game, though Francona noted that the outfielder came in feeling good Monday and could be available off the bench. His return should push Jordan Luplow back to a bench role.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Manager Terry Francona suggested over the weekend that the sore hamstring could keep Martin out of the lineup for a day or two, so it's not too shocking that the outfielder will miss a second straight start. Jordan Luplow will take Martin's spot in center field and bat seventh.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Sitting due to hamstring issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Martin exited late in Saturday's 5-4 victory with a tight hamstring, but at this time, the issue isn't viewed as something that will likely result in a trip to the 10-day injured list. Instead, manager Terry Francona expressed optimism that after a day or two of rest to make sure the hamstring problem doesn't worsen, Martin should be ready to rejoin the lineup. Jordan Luplow will replace Martin in center field in the series finale.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Nursing tight hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was removed during the ninth inning of Saturday's win over the Mariners with a tight hamstring, Chris Assenheimer of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Manager Terry Francona indicated it may have been a precautionary exit for Martin given the cold and wet conditions, but it's nonetheless worth keeping an eye on. The 31-year-old should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

Indians' Leonys Martin: Launches fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Astros.

Martin uncorked a solo homer over the fence in right field during the third inning, handing the Indians an early 1-0 lead. Entering Thursday's contest, the 31-year-old hadn't secured an extra-base hit since April 16, so his fourth homer of the year was a welcome sight. He's batting .256 with seven RBI through 23 games in 2019.
