    A Long Beach State recruit, the undersized Martin embodies the Dirtbag spirit. Scouts have a tendency to use the phrase "good little player" when talking about the 5-foot-10, 180-pounder, a high-energy player with decent tools across the board. He's a solid-average runner who projects as an average defensive center fielder with an average arm. He has a compact swing and a knack for putting the barrel on the ball from the left side, giving him a chance to be an average hitter. He has a gap-to-gap approach but could grow into more power down the road. Martin lacks a carrying tool, but scouts love his makeup and aptitude, and giving him a chance to grind his way to the big leagues. He could be drafted between the fifth and eighth round.
