Leonys Martin keeps hot streak going Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:17 am ET) Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin continued his hot streak at the plate Friday against the White Sox.

After striking out in his first at-bat, Martin clubbed a triple his next time at the plate. He followed that up with a solo home run, and a single. Martin came to the plate in the eighth a double short of the cycle, but struck out in his final at-bat.

Martin's triple came against Felix Hernandez in the eighth inning and was enough to chase the Seattle ace from the game after his nearly flawless performance. The center fielder would score on a sacrifice fly by the next batter. He then came up with the bases loaded and his team down one with two outs in the ninth inning before a wild pitch scored the tying run, and Martin's single to left field ended the game. He has hit .277/.346/.319 with two stolen bases in 47 at-bats this season.

Leonys Martin still learning 'how to push himself' amid struggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin appeared in only 15 games for Licey in the Dominican Winter League because he told the club he needed to return to Miami for extensive dental work in December, according to The Dallas Morning News.

ESPN analyst and Licey general manager Manny Acta was disappointed Martin left the team after only 15 games because he could have benefited from more at-bats after hitting just .170 in 53 at-bats. It was the sixth-lowest average among the 87 players who had at least 50 regular-season at-bats in the Dominican.

"He’s very talented and played great defense all around," Acta said. "It was too bad he had to stop playing. He could have used more at-bats against left-handers."

Rangers manager Ron Washington said he's not concerned about Martin's poor offensive showing.

"He might have been tired," Washington said. "He’s a young kid who hasn’t learned how to push himself when things aren’t going good. He hasn’t learned how to grind. He’s learning, but he’s not there yet."
