Rangers | Leonys Martin will be allowed to run

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said the team will allow OF Leonys Martin to try to steal bases whenever he wants during the regular season. "We told him at the beginning of spring training that we were turning him loose," Washington said. "We're going to stay aggressive. Some nights, it's going to turn us off the field. Some nights, it's going to run us into some big innings."

Fantasy Tip: The freedom Martin will receive on the base paths certainly will help his value in mixed leagues and American League-only leagues even though he likely will be part of a platoon.
