Leonys Martin recalled, added to active roster

The Rangers have added Leonys Martin to the active roster

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Outfielder Leonys Martin has been recalled from the minors and added to the active roster.  Martin was already on the 40 man roster, so no corresponding move was necessary.

Leonys underwent surgery on his hand a few weeks ago, and has apparently been taking batting practice the last few days.  For now, Leonys is expected to be just a defensive replacement and pinch running option, though he could end up being an option as a hitter as well at some point.
