    When the season began, Texas A&M planned on making Martin its closer, a role he had success with in the Cape Cod League the previous summer. But Martin has long wanted to be a starter, and when he was finally given the chance, he turned into the the most reliable part of the Aggies' rotation. Martin has backed off on his velocity as a starter to command his fastball better, and it's paid off as he's able to locate better in the low-90s than he did when he was throwing in the mid-90s. His feel for his breaking pitches also improved with the lengthier outings. Martin generally has his above-average fastball and an above-average changeup which he is comfortable throwing to righties and lefties, but whether he relies on his slider or curveball depends on which one he has a feel for that night. His 83-86 mph slider is the more consistent of the two and it's sat in the high 80s when he was pitching out of the pen.
