Martin's profile is hard to sell, as all of his value is tied into his lefthanded bat. Martin has quick hands and a patient approach at the plate, with strong strike zone discipline. Martin shows off plus raw power in batting practice, with the ability to drive the ball out from foul pole to foul pole. The Angels took a shot at Martin as a junior in 2014, but the two sides were unable to come to an agreement. Martin did not become a lineup fixture for the Gamecocks until his junior year, and he now has two years of performing in the SEC in his portfolio, he hit 15 home runs this year with more walks (39) than strikeouts (27). Those who believe in Martin's bat could view him a solid senior sign whose offensive upside could carry him.
