Leonys Martin (hamstring) returned to the Mariners starting lineup on Friday, going 0-for-4 in a loss to the Red Sox.

It's encouraging to see him back in the lineup against a left-handed pitcher, given his overall struggles against southpaws, which must mean that his hamstring is feeling better. The dynamic outfielder has 10 homers and nine stolen bases in 50 games on the season.

Leonys Martin is out of the Mariners' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Rays.

Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times says Martin looked like he was bothered by his left hamstring on Wednesday night.

Martin finished the afternoon 1-for-4 and is now slashing .242/.316/.459 with 10 homers, 21 RBI and eight stolen bases on the season.

The next step for Martin will be running, and he should be ready to take a crack at that this weekend. The 28-year-old outfielder initially injured his left hamstring on May 25.

May 31 - 2:07 PM

Mariners expect Leonys Martin (hamstring) to return from the disabled list after the 15-day minimum.

Manager Scott Servais said on Saturday that Martin's hamstring injury should only keep him out 7-10 days. That should enable him to return fully healthy at the 15-day mark. The 28-year-old outfielder is hitting .262/.339/.483 with nine homers and eight stolen bases, taking the road-less-traveled of improving offensively after moving to a more pitcher-friendly ballpark.
May 28 - 7:16 PM

Mariners placed OF Leonys Martin on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Rather than rush the hot-hitting outfielder back, they'll give him the proper time to heal his injury. Stefan Romero has been recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the M's roster.
May 27 - 8:44 PM

Leonys Martin said that his hamstring was feeling much better on Friday and he remains optimistic that he'll avoid a trip to the disabled list.

He's still expected to miss the next 3-4 games, so fantasy owners should plan to be without him for the remainder of the weekend. He's scheduled to take some swings on Friday, and if all goes well he should return to the lineup early next week.
