Leonys Martin collects two hits Tuesday

Leonys Martin went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday’s win over the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

Martin is off to a decent start in the leadoff spot for the Tigers, hitting .288 with a home run, six walks and a stolen base. He is going to need to be more successful on the base paths to gain much fantasy value (caught twice to one stolen base), but a leadoff hitter always has appeal in AL-only leagues.

Leonys Martin reaches base three times, steals a base Sunday

Leonys Martin went 2-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base, and a run scored in Sunday's 1-0 victory over the White Sox. The stolen base was his first of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Martin, who had been struggling to start the season, was the only Tigers player to record a hit on Sunday. If he can stay healthy and continue to get on base at the top of the Detroit lineup (two big ifs, given Martin's past), he could be a sneaky source of steals for fantasy owners this season.

Leonys Martin goes deep in win

Leonys Martin hit his first home run of Spring Training against the Braves on Saturday. He went 1-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored in the 6-3 win.

Fantasy Impact

Martin can be a key contributor for the Tigers in 2018 if he can stay healthy. He has eclipsed 20 plus stolen bases three times in his career. Martin could be a cheap source of speed this year.

Leonys Martin looking to lead things off and start in center field

Leonys Martin is currently projecting to be the starting center fielder and potential lead off hitter for the Tigers this season. Last season was a struggle at the plate hitting an average of .172 in 49 games played.

Fantasy Impact

The Tigers are looking to showcase Martin's speed on the bases this year, which is something that the Tigers have lacked in the past. In his career, Martin has stolen more than 24 bases three separate times. Martin should be considered a depth player, but he is one to watch with his ability to run the bases.

Leonys Martin signs with Tigers

The Tigers signed Leonys Martin to a one-year deal, according to Anthony Fenech.

Fantasy Impact

Martin had a terrible season splitting time between the Mariners and the Cubs, batting just .172. But he has showed before that he can hold down an everyday job, and stole 105 bases from 2013-2016. Martin will likely get the opportunity to compete for a starting outfield job, and should be kept in mind during draft season for those in AL-only leagues.
