CLEVELAND, Ohio – Leonys Martin has struggled at the plate this season. On Thursday, he struggled in center field.

Martin misplayed a fly ball hit by Elvus Andrus in the first inning that ended up being an RBI Triple. Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor wasn't pleased with Martin's effort, which led to a heated exchange between the two in the Indians dugout. 


Martin has a .199 batting average, with nine home runs and 19 RBI on the season. The 31-year-old is known for his defense, but he's struggled at the plate all season.
