Martin first drew attention from scouts with his eye-opening performances at the Area Code Games preliminaries and the showcase itself last summer. His strong, projectable 6-foot-3, 200-pound build is nearly perfect for a young lefthander, and his raw stuff is equally impressive. His fastball ranges from 88-91 mph and will peak at 92. His best pitch is his hard curveball, which when thrown properly has wicked late break and is effective against both lefthanded and righthanded hitters. His mechanics are a concern, however, hampering his command and making him wildly inconsistent from outing to outing. Martin's high school team has no pitching coach, and he has to travel for specialized coaching, so with hard work and more instruction he figures to overcome his technical flaws. When he is not pitching, Martin plays first base. With 13 home runs this spring, he has drawn attention as a lefthanded-hitting slugger, and Cal State Fullerton covets him as a two-way recruit.
