Rangers’ Martin says he was held captive in Mexico after defecting
Arlington — Texas Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin has never gone into detail about his defection from Cuba and his path to freedom in the United States.
But his story has come to light through a civil lawsuit that Martin filed a year ago in Broward County (Fla.) Circuit Court against his former agents and a Mexican-based company, Estrellas del Beisbol, which managed him.
Martin alleges that he and his group were held hostage by a number of gunmen.
