Rangers CF Leonys Martin in starting lineup Wednesday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/15) Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin is back in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox. He will bat seventh in the order.

Martin was held out of Tuesday's contest with a left-hander on the mound, but socked a pinch-hit home run in the ninth inning.

With Martin back in the lineup, Delino DeShields slides over to left and Kyle Blanks will be on the bench. 

Kyle Blanks makes debut in left field Friday for Rangers

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/15) Kyle Blanks has been too productive to remove from the lineup, so the Rangers have placed him in left field for the first time Friday night against Cleveland left-hander Bruce Chen.

Blanks, who had been at first base, emerged from a 1-for-15 slide with a three-hit game Tuesday. He is 5-for-15 with three home runs against southpaws. His slash line on the year is a fine .314/.364/.549.

Rangers' Kyle Blanks working through sore feet

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/14/15) The Rangers aren't in a rush to have Kyle Blanks in the outfield because he experiencing some soreness in his feet, according to MLB.com. Mitch Moreland was reinstated from the disabled list, which could open the door for an appearance in the outfield in the near future for Blanks.

Blanks is hitting .314 (16 for 51) with three homers and six RBI in 13 games.

Rangers could move Kyle Blanks to outfield

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/7/15) The Rangers called Kyle Blanks up to play first base with Mitch Moreland injured. But with Moreland's left elbow injury is nearly healed, Blanks may not be heading back to the minors. 

Blanks has impressed thus far as he held a .357 batting average entering Thursday's game against the Rays. He's hit three home runs and totaled five RBI. Therefore, the Rangers are considering moving Blanks to the outfield when Moreland returns. 

However, Blanks' injury history is a concern for the Rangers. At first, the risk of injury is a lot lower than in the outfield. 

"We are aware of that," manager Jeff Banister said, via MLB.com. "This is a big man and that is a lot of area and a lot of wear and tear. A guy swinging the bat like he is, you want to keep him healthy and on the field."

Rangers' Kyle Blanks collects three hits, including HR vs. Houston

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/6/15) Rangers first baseman Kyle Blanks continued to swing a hot bat, collecting three hits, including a home run in Tuesday's 7-1 win over Houston. 

Blanks took Kevin Chapman deep in the fifth inning for a solo home run. He added a pair of singles and finished 3 for 4 with two runs scored and an RBI. Over his last five games, Blanks is hitting .450 (9 for 20) with two walks, a double, three homers and five RBI.
