Rangers | Leonys Martin has decent shot to make team
Wed, 23 Jan 2013 14:08:06 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin has a decent shot to make the team out of spring training as he competes with OF Craig Gentry for the center field spot. Martin probably has the best chance out of SS Jurickson Profar, 3B Mike Olt, OF Engel Beltre and C Jorge Alfaro at making the opening day roster. Martin has been compared to Boston Red Sox OF Jacoby Ellsbury, who hitting coach Dave Magadan also worked with in Boston. "The ceiling is limitless on him. So we'll let him go at his pace and whatever we can to make him better, and he's definitely a lot like Jacoby in the way he's very coachable, very open. He's got that personality where he's very approachable, those are all good things," Magadan said.
