Martin is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox.

Martin and Delino DeShields have been splitting playing time in center field, with DeShields getting the starts against lefties and some righties. There's been talk of DeShields playing some second base, which would likely leave a few more at-bats for Martin.

Martin is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Indians, according to Rangers VP of Comm. John Blake.

Martin and Delino DeShields have alternated the starts in center field of late, and that will remain the case Wednesday with DeShields getting the nod after sitting out Tuesday. With Josh Hamilton now entrenched in left field in Texas, and Shin-Soo Choo already playing every day in right field, expect Martin and DeShields to continue sharing the center field duties moving forward.

Martin is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Yankees.

Martin's wrist sprain from earlier in May shouldn't be too much of a concern at this point, as he's likely just getting some rest. Delino DeShields will move over from left field and get the start in center.
