Martin is a lefthanded-hitting first baseman committed to Gonzaga. He has added 10-15 pounds physically and shown big raw power this spring, as he did last summer in the Area Code Games. His power is his calling card, and some scouts giving him plus raw power with a compact swing. He parlayed that tool into a spot in the Power Showcase in the offseason. While his approach is geared for power more than contact, Martin has some feel for hitting, and scouts who think he can get to his power against pro velocity would be banking on his above-average bat speed. He's a below-average runner who may be able to handle an outfield corner as well down the line.
