Leonys Martin will be the Rangers' starting center fielder today against Houston even though Craig Gentry had a double and a triple and scored twice Tuesday night. Manager Ron Washington stated again that the position is not a platoon, even though the left-handed Martin is starting against Astros right-hander Philip Humber. The right-handed-hitting Gentry is expected to start Friday against Angels left-hander Jason Vargas.
