A big change in the Rangers' lineup has taken place Saturday as center fielder Leonys Martin jumps from the No. 9 spot in the lineup to second, alleviating David Murphy of that duty against right-handed pitchers. Martin is batting .291 compared to .217 for Murphy, who went hitless in the No. 2 hole Friday in a 7-2 loss. He struck out in the fourth with the bases loaded and two outs after the Rangers had already plated two runs. It's Martin's first career start anywhere higher than No. 7 in a lineup.
