Martin scored twice and drove home a pair of runs in the contest. With the big day, he's now slashing .286/.375/.405 on the Cactus League season. A popular sleeper pick in fantasy drafts, Martin should have no problem delivering double-digit power totals to go along with his elite speed.

Leonys Martin went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI, leading the Rangers to a 7-5 win over the Rangers in Cactus League play on Friday.

The speedy outfielder also scored a run in the process. The 26-year-old outfielder has a dynamic blend of power and speed, but his fantasy upside is limited hitting at the bottom of the Rangers lineup. He should still be a nice source of speed and provide double-digit homers, but the run and RBI totals will hamper his overall value.

Rangers manager Ron Washington laid out his Opening Day lineup on Wednesday, projecting Leonys Martin to bat at the bottom of the order.

Washington's full lineup, which he adamantly asserted he would use in the team's first game on March 31, was Shin-Soo Choo, Elvis Andrus, Prince Fielder, Adrian Beltre, Alex Rios, Mitch Moreland, Geovany Soto, Jurickson Profar and Martin. Earlier this offseason Washington suggested Martin could bat leadoff in 2014, but that was before the team brought Choo on board. At the bottom of the lineup, the 25-year-old won't score as many runs as he would at the top and should be knocked a bit on draft day accordingly.

Rangers manager Ron Washington said Monday that Leonys Martin projects to hit leadoff in 2014.

That's assuming the Rangers don't make a big move for a better-suited leadoff hitter. Martin got most of his plate appearances from the ninth spot in the lineup in 2013 and still managed to provide a considerable amount of fantasy value. He'd get a major boost in all standard leagues as the everyday guy at the head of the Texas lineup. Martin had 36 steals and 66 runs scored in 147 games this past year.
