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.

Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin went 3-for-4 with one RBI and a steal Wednesday at Miami.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
