Is Leonys Martin’s Injury More than it Seems?

Yesterday I had an article over at SeedlingsToStars.com FanSided’s new blog covering the Minor Leagues – It details some of Leonys Martin’s stats to date and how he is performing in Frisco. He has been placed on the DL and I discuss some about his current injury.

Martin’s story has been recounted several times, effectively Martin defected from Cuba – and signed for about 15 million dollars with the Texas Rangers. During the MLB Draft I heard multiple reports that he would have gone in the first round had he been draft eligible. Certainly 15 million would have been well-above slot.
