Rangers | Leonys Martin back in lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:48:27 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is back in the starting lineup Sunday, June 28, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Martin will start in center field and hit eighth in the order against RHP Drew Hutchison. OF Ryan Rua comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) biggest upside comes in the stolen base category, as he has 12 on the season. Martin is hitting just .222 against righties, and he should be avoided against Drew Hutchison, who has been dominant when pitching at home.

Rangers | Leonys Martin on the bench

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:31:55 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Matt Boyd Saturday, June 27. 3B Joey Gallo will start in center field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return in the next game or two. Gallo ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has four hits in his last eight games and is batting only .125 against left-handed pitchers, so owners on FantasyScore may want to look at other options.

Rangers | Leonys Martin in June funk

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 16:36:31 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin has seen his average drop to .227 and his on-base percentage to .270 in the month of June, and he's hitless in his last 11 at-bats and 2-for-33 entering Friday, June 26, since his average peaked this year at .255 on June 14. The Rangers don't really have any other options to play center field right now, so Martin will be allowed to fight through his slump. However, OFs Josh Hamilton (hamstring) and Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) are both nearing returns and can both play center field. Martin is 7-for-44 (.159) against left-handed pitchers since May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) shouldn't have been in many FantasyScore lineups tonight while facing Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle. Expect Martin to lose valuable playing time once both Hamilton and DeShields return to action.

Rangers | Texas has struggled against Sonny Gray

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 10:01:19 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, OF Leonys Martin, 3B Adrian Beltre, 2B Rougned Odor and C Robinson Chirinos are a combined .128 (14-for-109) in their careers against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray, who they face Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: None of the players mentioned for Texas are hitting particularly well at this time, either, so it's best to stay away from them on FantasyScore this afternoon. Beltre ($4,800, 9.6% of cap), who came off the DL early the other day, is still swinging with pain in his thumb.

Rangers | Leonys Martin batting eighth

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 13:25:39 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is starting in center field and batting eighth against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has been better of late, and his seasonal value is on the rise with Josh Hamilton (hamstring) out for approximately a month. Martin has an active 13-for-40 streak with six runs, two home runs, eight RBI, a stolen base and a .325/.357/.575 slash line. FantasyScore players have a risk/reward play on their hands Thursday, as Martin faces capable-lefty Carlos Rodon.

Rangers | Leonys Martin out vs. lefty

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:39:22 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Wednesday, June 3. OF Delino DeShields Jr. is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) and Martin are likely to be in some sort of platoon in center field as long as Josh Hamilton is healthy and playing regularly in left. While DeShields was impressive last month with regular playing time, he could struggle to become a value play on FantasyScore tonight while facing the always tough Sale.

Rangers | Delino DeShields not starting

Fri, 29 May 2015 13:55:50 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 29. OF Leonys Martin is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) hasn't really done much for fantasy owners to hang their hat on this year. However, if you're feeling frisky on FantasyScore tonight, he does have some upside while setting the table for a surging Texas lineup Friday. The soft-tossing Wright presents Martin with a nice matchup, too.

Rangers | Leonys Martin leading off

Fri, 29 May 2015 12:48:29 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is batting first and playing center field against the Boston Red Sox Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has really struggled this season, but he holds nice upside setting the table for a surging Texas lineup. Martin has just six runs, two home runs and three RBI over his past 56 plate appearances with a .176/.236/.353 slash line. He is worth considering as a risky low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Friday. His value is plummeting in seasonal formats, and he currently doesn't hold value outside of deep mixed and AL-only formats.

Rangers | Leonys Martin sitting vs. Tribe

Wed, 27 May 2015 07:04:04 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, May 27. OF Delino DeShields is starting in center field and leading off Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Martin ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Wednesday. He is reeling along a 7-for-36 stretch with just three runs, one home run, one RBI and one stolen base over his last 14 games. DeShields ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is sporting a .441 on-base percentage over his past 14 games with 14 runs and four stolen bases. He is an excellent target for FantasyScore players Wednesday.

Rangers | Delino DeShields not starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 11:24:49 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 26. OF Leonys Martin is hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) looks like he's getting a normal night off, as he and Shin-Soo Choo have formed a fairly good 1-2 punch at the top of the lineup. Martin ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is worth a flier in your league as he is hitting .333 (6-for-18) with a home run and stolen base.
