Drafted in the 10th round (314th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2012 (signed for $10,000)
While Martin has size (6-foot-7, 240 pounds), arm strength (he can hit 95 mph) and the ability to spin the ball, he has yet to parlays those assets into consistent success. He'll pitch at 90-93 mph with his fastball early in games but dip quickly into the low 80s. His curveball and slider have their moments but lack consistency. His control and command regressed in 2012, and scouts wish he has more deception in his delivery and fire in his belly. He spent his first two college seasons at Vincennes (Ind.) JC.
