Leonys Martin returns to the leadoff spot for the first time since being activated from the disabled list Friday, as the Mariners have him atop the order in their series opener with Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Martin is 1 for 12 since coming back from a strained left hamstring, but that one hit was a 401-foot home run on Sunday, his 10th of the season.

The pitching matchup is Taijuan Walker for Seattle against Jake Odorizzi of the Rays.
