Mariners outright Leonys Martin to Rainiers

After finding no takers in four days after they designated him for assignment, the Mariners Thursday outrighted OF Leonys Martin to AAA Tacoma.  Martin’s poor work at the plate through spring training and the regular season — .111 with five runs, one double, four steals, a .172 on-base percentage and a .130 slugging percentage in 15 games with Seattle — caused his demotion this season.

In 2016, Martin hit .247 with 15 home runs and 24 steals in 143 games, and ranked second among American League center fielders with 11 outfield assists.

The Mariners acquired Martin along with RHP Anthony Bass from Texas in exchange for RHP Tom Wilhelmsen, OF James Jones and Patrick Kivlehan Nov. 16.

Martin has appeared in parts of seven MLB seasons with the Rangers (2011-15) and Mariners (2016-17), posting a career batting average of .248 with 245 runs, 70 doubles, 18 triples, 35 home runs, 167 RBI and 112 steals in 587 games.
