Martin went 2-for-5 with two home runs, including a walk-off solo shot in the bottom of the 11th inning Wednesday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Martin also hit a two-run homer in the second that started the comeback win, and he now has a career-high 13 on the season. His previous season high was eight homers in 457 at-bats with Texas in 2013. Wednesday performance busted a couple of poor streaks the outfielder was riding, including a three-game hitless skid and a home run drought dating back to June 23.

Martin went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and run in Saturday's 1-0 victory over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old was an intergral part of the low-scoring victory for Seattle, coming home on Robinson Cano's RBI single in the sixth for the only run of the game. Martin has multi-hit efforts in two of his last three games, but is still only slashing .209/.320/.326 in July.

Martin (hamstring) made it through Wednesday's simulated game without any issues, Bob Dutton of The News Tribune reports. The Mariners plan on having him play seven innings at Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Martin was able to get in some base running during Wednesday's sim game and he also reportedly connected on a deep home run to center field during the session. Provided that he can make it through Thursday's tuneup at Triple-A, Martin will likely be activated in time to return to the Mariners' lineup Friday. Prior to landing on the disabled list, Martin had been on an absolute tear, batting .500 with four home runs in his last nine games played.

Martin (hamstring) participated in extensive agility work and sprints Wednesday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Martin appears just about ready to begin a rehab assignment which will likely occur Thursday or Friday. If all goes well in those appearances, he should have the green light to return to Seattle's lineup this weekend. The 28-year-old outfielder will inherit a .262/.339/.483 slash line when he returns to action.

Martin (hamstring) could return as soon as Friday, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The goal had been June 10, and Martin is close to meeting that target date. He will run the bases in a simulated setting Wednesday before heading to Triple-A Tacoma for a one-game rehab assignment. If the hamstring responds well, Martin will be back in center field for the series opener against the Rangers.

Martin (hamstring) will resume running the bases Monday and remains on track for a June 10 activation from the DL, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Assuming the running session goes well, Martin will be cleared to start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma, where he'll likely play the outfield for two games. Martin should recapture his role as the Mariners' primary center fielder upon activation, which would bump either Norichika Aoki or Franklin Gutierrez to a bench role.
