Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin declined to report to the Rangers' instructional facilities in Arizona over the weekend. Martin was one of many players asked to report and work out in case the club needed extra players for the postseason, but general manager Jon Daniels said Martin "apparently was miffed" over being left off the playoff roster in the first place.
Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) lost his job in the outfield to Delino DeShields late in the season, and he shouldn't be in your lineup either. Not only will Martin not be in the roster for the rest of the playoffs (most likely), Martin may be finished as a Ranger.
