As if losing wasn’t bad...

Leonys Martin, a late steal for steals

In looking at Leonys Martin’s stat sheet, you see a number of issues. Thankfully he plays in a hitters park so his overall slash numbers still are decent enough to maintain fantasy production, but he does not produce much in the average or on base departments, has limited power, struggles against left-handed pitching, and doesn’t hit in a good spot in the order for run production...

Martin expects big things in second full season with Rangers

Texas centerfielder Leonys Martin talks a lot about how he's more comfortable this spring as he prepares for his second full season in the majors.

Rangers' Leonys Martin victom of kidnapping and extortion

Leonys Martin Tapanes seemed like yet another Cuban baseball player with tremendous promise when he signed a $15.5 million contract with the Texas Rangers in 2011. But there apparently is a darker story behind Martin’s climb from poverty to Major League Baseball success.

Martin starts opener but no platoon in center

HOUSTON Leonys Martin followed up a spring that saw him make the Opening Day roster for the first time by nabbing a spot in the Opening Day lineup. Martin, who batted ninth and started in center, got the nod over Craig Gentry.
