On Tuesday, August 4th the Texas Rangers optioned OF Leonys Martin to Triple-A Roundrock, a move many Rangers fans saw coming. Leonys has had a frustrating campaign so far in 2015 and he’s lost his starting spot in center field because of it. So far this season Martin is hitting a putrid .220 with 5 HRs and 25 RBIs. Many Rangers fans were hoping this would be his breakout year after his 2014 season, but he has been arguably the team’s biggest disappointment.

Leonys Martin can be an impact player for the Texas Rangers as he has an incredible arm in center field to go with some impressive range. When he is on base he is able to steal bases and he has shown that he is a top-notch defensive center fielder. So I dove deep into the stat book to see what is wrong with Martin at the dish and what he should focus on in Triple-A so he can help this team in the stretch run!
