Leonys Martin finished 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Martin hit a solo home run in the second inning and added an RBI on a sacrifice fly in the fourth. Martin also hit his fourth triple of the season in the game, boosting his average up to .274 with a .725 OPS. Martin should continue to start almost every day going forward, and with an injury-riddled Rangers squad the 26-year-old will likely continue to get more RBI opportunities as he hits near the middle of the lineup as well.

Leonys Martin singled in Luis Sardinas in the top of the ninth Saturday to lead the Rangers past the Mariners 4-3.

It wasn't one of Martin's better swings, but it worked, as he snuck a ball down the third base line to plate the run against Fernando Rodney. Martin, who was batting leadoff for the third time this season, also had an earlier single and a walk in the game. He was 2-for-3 stealing bases. If he can hang on to the leadoff spot, he should be quite a bit more valuable in mixed leagues.

Leonys Martin's solo home run(his third of the year) off Tanner Roark in the seventh inning was all the offense the Rangers would need in its 2-0 win over the Nationals.

Martin, who owns a respectable .277/.325/.375 slash line, won't hit for much power, but with 11 stolen bases he still makes for a useful fantasy play.

Leonys Martin doubled his season doubles total from two to four and scored three times Thursday against the Twins.

Martin entered the day with exactly two doubles, two triples and two homers in 170 at-bats, but that symmetry is gone now, likely never to return. More power would be nice, given that he entered the game with a Juan Pierre-like .071 isolated slugging percentage (.347 slugging percentage - .276 batting average).
