Drafted in the 21st round (623rd overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2018 (signed for $40,000)
Martinez bounced back from UC Riverside and became Riverside (Calif.) JC’s do-everything standout. He led the Tigers in on-base percentage (.469), home runs (three), innings pitched (89.1), wins (seven) and strikeouts (77). Martinez is undersized at 5-foot-11 but is a durable, exceptional athlete who teams mostly prefer on the mound. Martinez’s fastball sits 88-91 mph and touches 93. He complements his fastball with a high spin rate breaking ball and a changeup he shows natural feel for. He has no trouble taking the ball consecutive days, sometimes relieving a day after he starts, reminding coaches of former Riverside JC pitcher and 11-year major leaguer Jesse Chavez. Martinez primarily played third base when he didn’t pitch and has a quick lefthanded swing, but he doesn’t have the power to profile for the position. Martinez may see a velocity boost once he focuses solely on pitching and is a candidate to go on the draft’s third day.
