Few players made more strides this year than this slight righthander, who dominated with a 9-1, 0.24 record, 111 strikeouts and 11 walks in 59 innings. In one five-inning outing, all 15 outs were strikeouts. His polish and command of four pitches are rarely seen in a high school pitcher and had scouts comparing Martin to a young Greg Maddux. Martin isn't overpowering, as his fastball registered only 87-89 mph and peaked at 91-92, but the pitch has Kevin Brown-like sinking action. The best may be yet to come for the 6-foot-4, 160-pound Martin, who projects to add another two inches and 50 pounds as he matures.
