ARLINGTON (AP)  Cuban outfielder Leonys Martin has his first assignment with the Texas Rangers.

Martin, who defected from Cuba last year and signed a $15.5 million, five-year contract last week, is scheduled to make his debut in the Rangers organization Thursday playing for Double-A Frisco.

The speedy outfielder was introduced by the Rangers before their game Wednesday. Martin says he has always dreamed of playing in the major leagues, and he may get that chance by the end of the season.

General manager Jon Daniels says the Rangers will see how he does at Double-A before determining the next step.
