Leonys Martin drives in a run versus the Pirates Saturday

Leonys Martin came in off the bench and went 1-for-3 with a RBI. It was his first run driven in with the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

He is mostly a speedy pinch-runner and possible defensive replacement right now for the Cubs. He did show appealing potential earlier in his career so it is possible he regains it someday.

Leonys Martin came in as a pinch-runner in the ninth inning. He then stole second base and scored on Alex Avila's triple.

Leonys Martin traded to the Cubs

Leonys Martin was traded to the Cubs on Thursday for a player to be named later or cash.

Fantasy Impact

Martin was the Mariners' opening-day center fielder but spent much of the year at Triple-A Tacoma because of poor performance. The 29-year-old veteran slashed an anemic .174/.221/.287 in 34 games this year with the Mariners. The Cubs did not add Martin to their 40-man roster, but because he was acquired prior to Sept. 1, he will be eligible to play for them in the playoffs.

Leonys Martin designated for assignment

Leonys Martin was designated for assignment by Seattle on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Martin was removed from the 40-man roster to make room for relief pitcher David Phelps who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move. Martin had been designated for assignment and cleared waivers earlier this year after slashing a dismal .111/.172/ .130 over 58 plate appearances. He then spent time in Triple-A Tacoma and performed well enough to be recalled to the big club on July 30, hitting .230/.266/.426 with three home runs and eight RBIs since then in 19 games. If he doesn't get claimed, the 29-year-old outfielder could remain with the organization and return when rosters expand in September, if not sooner.

Leonys Martin homers in his Seattle return

Leonys Martin hit a Seth Lugo pitch for a solo home run over the right center field wall in his first at-bat since being recalled to the Majors in Seattle's 9-1 win over the New York Mets on Sunday. Martin also singled and struck out twice.

Fantasy Impact

Martin was called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday when Mitch Haniger was placed on the 10-day disabled list. The 29-year-old outfielder was designated for assignment on April 23 after slashing a poor .111/.172/.130 in his first 58 plate appearances, and outrighted to Tacoma after he cleared waivers on April 27. There Martin hit well (.312/.352/.506) with 24 stolen bases. He is not likely to add much fantasy value before Haniger returns. If Martin is to contribute, it will be in the steals department.
