Leonys Martin finished 4-for-4 with three doubles and three runs scored Monday against the Angels.

A rare outburst from Martin of late. Martin has just five homers since the beginning of June after hitting nine the first two months. Factoring in his defense, he's still been a solid regular for the Mariners.

Leonys Martin is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday against the Athletics.

It's nothing more than a routine day off for the dynamic center fielder. Ben Gamel will start in his place and bat eighth against Kendall Graveman and the Athletics on Saturday.
Sep 10 - 1:36 PM

Leonys Martin had a single, a sac fly, a stolen base and two outfield assists Wednesday as the Mariners edged the Angels 4-3.

The Angels made a couple too many outs on the basepaths in this one. Martin has been awfully quiet offensively of late; he had 10 homers the first two months before going on the DL, but he's hit just four in 58 games since. He's unlikely to go back to being of much use in mixed leagues, but the Mariners will keep him in the lineup for his defense.

Leonys Martin delivered a two-run double off Aroldis Chapman in the eighth inning on Saturday, propelling the Mariners to a 4-1 victory over the Cubs.

The Mariners entered the eighth inning trailing 1-0, but started a rally with a pair of leadoff walks against Jake Arrieta. Hector Rondon was summoned to face a pair of right-handers, retiring them both before Chapman came on to face Martin. Martin crushed a 1-1 offering to center field, plating the tying and go-ahead run. He then deftly swiped third base and scampered home on a wild pitch providing valuable insurance. Martin finished the day 2-for-4 and is now hitting .250/.324/.427 with 13 homers, 32 RBI and 11 stolen bases.
Jul 30 - 5:02 PM

Leonys Martin secured the Mariners' only hit in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Martin's little single was all the M's could manage against J.A. Happ and company. While he has had a few big moments this month -- including a two-homer performance against the White Sox on July 20 -- Martin has struggled for the most part since the calendar flipped. He entered Sunday's contest holding a soggy .188/.316/.359 triple-slash over 64 July at-bats.
Jul 24 - 3:47 PM

Leonys Martin launched a walk-off solo home run to end Wednesday's 6-5, 11-inning win over the White Sox, his second homer of the game.

Martin's first shot was of the two-run variety. He socked it off White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez in the second inning. The 28-year-old outfielder waited until the bottom of the 11th to crack homer No. 2, this one coming off reliever Dan Jennings. Unfortunately for Jennings, it would finish off the game. For the season, Martin is slashing .245/.324/.427 with 13 homers, 29 RBI and 10 steals over 274 at-bats.
Jul 20 - 9:16 PM

Leonys Martin went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and run scored in Saturday's win over the Astros.

Martin led off the sixth inning with a triple, his second of the season, and came around to score one batter later on a Robinson Cano RBI single. A hamstring injury in late May derailed what was looking to be a breakout year for the 28-year-old, and he's struggled since returning in mid-June. Martin is batting .249/.322/.418 with 11 home runs, 26 RBI, 36 runs scored and nine steals overall.
Jul 16 - 10:06 PM

Leonys Martin went hitless from the leadoff spot Friday and is 4-for-30 with 12 strikeouts to begin July.

Martin has fanned 18 times in his last 10 starts, and he's not looking like much of a leadoff hitter of late. If his slump continues, he could find himself returned to the bottom of the Mariners order.
Jul 8 - 11:22 PM

Leonys Martin laced three singles in five chances and scored a run on Saturday.

Martin is having the best season of his career after being terrible last year. He has traded some speed for more power this year. His 11 home runs are already a career high despite moving from a hitters' park in Texas to a pitchers' park in Seattle. He is hitting .257/.324/.450 with 26 runs, 26 RBI and nine steals.
Jun 26 - 2:06 AM

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.
Jun 18 - 9:05 AM

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. He just missed 15 days between late May and early June with a mild left hamstring strain. Shawn O'Malley is starting in center field and batting ninth Thursday versus Rays left-hander Blake Snell.
Jun 16 - 11:16 AM

Leonys Martin connected on his 10th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Rangers on Sunday.

Martin's fifth inning solo blast came off of tough opposing southpaw Cole Hamels. He has already eclipsed his career high in home runs and is starting to realize the potential that we have all heard about for years. 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.
Jun 12 - 7:25 PM

Mariners activated OF Leonys Martin from the 15-day disabled list.

Martin missed the minimum amount of time with his mild hamstring strain and should jump right back into the starting lineup. He was hitting .262 with nine homers and eight steals prior to the injury.
Jun 10 - 6:39 PM

Leonys Martin (hamstring) will not appear in Thursday's rehab game for Triple-A Tacoma because of soggy field conditions.

The Mariners don't want Martin to risk getting hurt on a sloppy field. The team is still planning to activate him on Friday. Martin was placed on the disabled list with a strained hamstring last month but only needed a couple weeks to recover. He'll return to a .262 average with nine homers and 20 RBI.
