Drafted in the 2nd round (70th overall) by the San Francisco Giants in 2004 (signed for $537,500)
An unsigned third-round pick of the Mariners out of a Miami high school in 2002, Martinez-Esteve might improve on that standing, considering the paucity of power bats in the '04 draft. He became one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's top sluggers this year, hitting .377 with 14 homers, and has some of the best raw power in the country. He's stayed healthy after a severe hamstring pull short-circuited his freshman season. Martinez-Esteve has lost some life in his lower half since the injury, and is a well-below-average defender who appears indifferent about getting better. Scouts invoke Manny Ramirez when describing his defensive play. His best position is the batter's box, where he punishes mistakes with brute strength. The consensus is that Martinez-Esteve has slider-bat speed, can be beaten inside by a good fastball and will have to make adjustments at the plate as a pro.
