Rangers Expected To Sign Leonys Martin Today

The Rangers are expected to sign Cuban outfielder Leonys Martin today for a signing bonus in the neighborhood of $15MM, reports Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.  Martin, who will receive a 40-man roster spot, took his physical yesterday.  Grant believes Martin could become a Major League option at some point this season.

The 23-year-old outfielder became a free agent last month after defecting from Cuba last year and establishing residency in Mexico.  Back in September, Baseball America's John Manuel wrote that Martin's "best tools are his speed and defense."  ESPN's Jorge Arangure Jr. tweeted in March that Martin is "considered an elite prospect."
