Rangers hold OF Martin out of lineup
Texas Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin was not in the lineup
Sunday against the Chicago White Sox after spraining his right
ankle the previous night.
Martin was injured during the ninth inning of Saturday’s game
against the White Sox in a collision with left fielder David
Murphy. Martin called off Murphy as both charged Paul Konerko’s fly
to center, but Murphy kept pursuing and made the catch.
Martin grabbed his ankle when he hit the ground and immediately
left the game. X-rays showed no structural damage.
Martin received treatment before Sunday’s game and was walking
around with a slight limp. He is day to day.
