Leonys Martin hit a walk-off, game-winning RBI-single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth on Wednesday against the Mariners. He finished the night 2-for-4 and added a triple and a run scored.
Martin has yet to live up the the hype that surrounded him this March, but on Wednesday night was the talk of the town. Those who drafted Martin for his speed on the base paths are still waiting for him to wake up (only 2 SB thus far), but his on-base percentage indicates that more chances are on the horizon. There is no reason to hit the panic button just yet. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
