10.28.17 Martin has a long-limbed projectable frame at 6-foot-3, 185-pounds, with plenty of room to add strength in the next two years. The right-handed hitter creates a ton of lift and drove the ball well to the pull side during batting practice. He starts from a tall open stance with his hands set back and away from his body. Early, smooth load back as he triggers his hands down and back, then strides out, landing square and balanced. Gets the barrel on plane early, then works on an uphill path through contact with a high finish. Strong lower half rotation with balance as he transfers his weight. Exit velocity of 85 mph off the tee, but with his frame and long levers, Martin still has a ton of offensive projection left. During the game turned on an inside fastball and hammered it for a single to left field. At first base, Martin makes the routine play look easy as he is able to play low with soft hands out front. Has a good overall feel for the position with rhythm in his feet as he comes off the bag at first base. Clean exchange starting the pivot at second base with a and accurate arm with a velocity to 73 mph across the diamond. Plays the ball to his backhand very well. Ran a 7.53 60-yard dash.


 
 
 
07.22.17 - At 6-foot-3, 180-pounds, Martin has a very projectable, long-limbed frame that projects into a corner-bat, middle of the order hitter at the collegiate level. A right-handed hitter, Martin starts from an open stance, loading easy with a high leg-kick as he triggers his hands down and back, staying tall as he lands with balance. Explosive lower half, he fires hips toward the mound, creating leverage and torque. Front arm bar early, hands work well through the zone, strong, loud contact. Creates lift and carry with power to the pull side, loose, high finish as the barrel is on time and on plane. Handles the ball middle-away extremely well as he can get extended, but also pulls his hands to hit inside pitches on the barrel. Look for Martin to continue to produce power as he adds strength to his frame. At first base, Martin is an athletic defender with smooth, quick footwork and good feel. He has soft hands that play well out front, quick, mid-line exchange into a short, clean, ¾ arm stroke. With his actions at first base, Martin could end up playing both third and first base in the future. Look for big things from him in the future.
