The Indians have acquired outfielder Leonys Martin from Detroit Tigers for shortstop prospect Willi Castro, the team announced Tuesday.

Leonys Martin, 30, was acquired from the Detroit Tigers. Martin is batting .251 with nine home runs in 78 games this season, according to the Indians.

Martin was placed on the 10-day disabled list from July 2-20 because of a left hamstring strain. He could be the starting center fielder for the team that has rotated multiple players at the position.
