Drafted in the 9th round (263rd overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2013 (signed for $10,000)
A sidearming reliever who drafted in the 35th round by the White Sox a year ago, Martin created some buzz last summer when he raised his arm slot to a high three-quarters angle and touched 95 mph as a starter in the Texas Collegiate League. His success didn't carry over to his senior season in 2013, however. The 6-foot-7, 220 pounder struggled with his control and command, pitched his way out of the Aggies rotation and returned to sidearming. He works at 88-91 mph with his fastball and has some feel for a changeup, but he hasn't had much success throwing a breaking ball from down under. Martin also was drafted out of a Texas high school in 2009, by the Nationals in the 39th round.
