Career1,116.14.201.342.187.05
Drafted in the 12th round (372nd overall) by the San Francisco Giants in 2005
After going just 3-5, 7.23 combined as a sophomore and junior for the Eagles, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Martinez went 8-3, 2.63 as a senior, showing some of the potential that prompted the Pirates to draft him out of a New Jersey high school in 2001. He throws three pitches for strikes, including an 88-91 mph fastball, and keeps hitters off balance with a true 78 mph curve--his strikeout pitch. He fanned 97 in 89 innings this year. Scouts say he should be even better as a pro as his 6-foot-3, 185-pound frame is undeveloped.
