Jason Martinson originally attended Texas State on a football scholarship, but tearing his hamstring on his first catch as a wide receiver convinced him his future was in baseball. A 6-foot-1, 190-pounder with solid speed and arm strength, he'll likely move from shortstop to third base after turning pro. While he has good bat speed, scouts wonder if he'll hit enough for the hot corner, because he varies his approach and chases fastballs up in the zone. He batted just .321 with four homers through the Southland Conference tournament, hurting his chances of going in the first five rounds.
