At our PBR at The Rock Fall Championships, Martin was up to 85 mph, from a loose, quick arm that projects while creating some ride on his fastball. He throws a tight breaking ball aggressively, too, offering up some two-pitch upside to monitor. Martin has also added some strength to his 6-foot-1 frame in between looks, and looks like a prospect to check back in on after the offseason.
