Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Leonys Martin has been one of the bright spots for the Rangers this season offensively, putting up a .291/.340/.435 line while stealing 18 bases in 21 attempts. Nevertheless, every game he's started this season, he's been in the bottom third of the lineup, despite clamoring from fans for him to move up in the order.

Well, today, its happening...Leonys is hitting 2nd in the order today.

The full lineup:

Kinsler -- 2B

Leonys -- CF

Cruz -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Pierzynski -- C

Elvis -- SS

Moreland -- 1B

Profar -- DH

Murphy -- LF

Derek Holland goes against Max Scherzer.
