Description: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker has pitched well this season, but one guy he hasn't figured how to get out is Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin.
Insight: Martin is 5-for-7 (.714) with a pair of doubles against Shoemaker. Martin should post a second consecutive 30-plus stolen base season and is batting a respectable .279, but until he bats higher in the lineup his runs and RBI totals will fall a bit short.
 
Hot8/27/2014 9:08:00 PM
Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin has gone 22-for-50 (.440) in his last 14 games.
Insight: However, just two of those hits were for extra bases. One of them came Wednesday at Seattle, when he went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI.
 
Hot8/20/2014 8:22:00 PM
Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin went 3-for-4 with one RBI and a steal Wednesday at Miami.
Insight: Martin has gone 15-for-30 (.500) in his last eight games, but with just one extra-base hit, one RBI and three runs during that span.

Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin is missing his second game in a row Wednesday against Seattle. SOURCE: Rangers on Twitter
Insight: He's still out with a sore neck. Michael Choice (.202, 2 HR, 14 RBI) will hold down the fort in center until Martin (.282, 2 HR, 14 RBI) feels better.
 
5/20/2014 5:01:00 PM
Description: Texas center fielder Leonys Martin has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup with neck pain, according to Richard Durrett of ESPN.
Insight: Martin has been solid this season, hitting .282 with two homers, 14 RBI, 15 runs and nine steals.
 
5/4/2014 1:00:00 PM
Description: Texas center fielder Leonys Martin won't start Sunday against the Angels.
Insight: It's only his second absence of the season. Martin lost his eight-game hitting streak on Saturday (0-for-4). Michael Choice (.196, 1 HR, 8 RBI) will take over in center field.
 
4/8/2014 4:20:00 PM
Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin will get Tuesday off. Michael Choice will start in his place.
Insight: Martin has hit .240 with a couple of stolen bases in seven games this season, but is hitless in his last three games (11 at-bats). Given a full season he should hit 10-12 homers and steal 40 bases which certainly has fantasy value.
 
2/20/2014 11:28:00 AM
Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin is projected to bat ninth in manager Ron Washington's preliminary lineup, according to a Dallas Morning News report.
Insight: Martin hit .260 with eight home runs, 49 RBI, 66 runs, 36 steals last season, but looking deeper into the numbers he knocked in 40 percent of his RBIs from the top spot in just 28 percent of his at-bats. The good news is that his batting average and OPS were higher at the bottom of the order.
 
8/29/2013 9:33:00 AM
Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin went 2-for-6 with a homer and four RBI Wednesday at Seattle.
Insight: Martin has hit .269 with seven home runs, 35 RBI, 54 runs, 29 steals and a .715 OPS, making him a solid fourth outfielder in deep leagues.
 
8/27/2013 10:07:00 AM
Description: Texas center fielder Leonys Martin didn't play Monday, but is probable for Tuesday's game against Seattle.
Insight: Martin (.271, 6 HR, 31 RBI, 29 SB) sprained his ankle over the weekend and has now missed two games in a row. He had been just one for his last 14 before the injury.
 
Cold8/26/2013 6:18:00 PM
Description: Texas center fielder Leonys Martin won't play Monday against Seattle.
Insight: Martin (.271, 6 HR, 31 RBI, 29 SB) sprained his ankle over the weekend and has now missed two games in a row. He had been just one for his last 14 before the injury.
 
8/26/2013 11:15:00 AM
Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin is probable for Monday's game against Seattle with a sprained right ankle.
Insight: Martin collided with David Murphy and came off the field limping. He's batting .271 with 6 HR, 31 RBI, 52 runs and 29 SB.
 
8/24/2013 10:52:00 PM
Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin hurt himself in a collision with teammate David Murphy on Saturday.
Insight: It wasn't clear what the injury was though Dallas Morning News writer Evan Grant noticed Martin was limping when he came off the field. Alex Rios is occupying center field in his absence.
 
8/18/2013 12:09:00 PM
Description: Texas center fielder Leonys Martin won't be available Sunday against the Mariners.
Insight: Martin (.274, 6 HR, 29 RBI) looked fine in Saturday's 15-3 win so he doesn't appear to be injured. We're guessing it's just a maintenance day for the 25-year-old.
 
6/25/2013 10:35:00 PM
Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin hit two homers Tuesday against the Yankees.
Insight: Martin will get most of the starts in center field with Craig Gentry out with a fractured hand. He's batting .289 with five home runs and 12 steals this year and should be considered in AL-only leagues.
