Isn’t it great to have a competent (read: not Austin Jackson) center fielder? The Mariners traded for Leonys Martin way back in mid-November, or just over nine months ago.

Having already hit a triple in the second inning, his first homer of the season in the fourth...
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...
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. All you have to do is speak to him to know that's the case. Last season Martin did most of his interviews through a translator as he wasn't comfortable answering questions in English. That's not the case anymore, as Martin handles questions...
