Leonys Martin DFA'd
SEATTLE, WA —
Struggling Seattle Mariners center fielder Leonys Martin has designated for assignment just two days after he was benched by the team.
In a corresponding move, the Mariners recalled first baseman Dan Vogelbach from Triple-A Tacoma. Martin registered just 6 hits in 54 at-bats for a .111 average.
Martin, 29, was acquired by trade in 2015 from the Texas Rangers.
