Martin ranked on the BA 500 out of high school thanks to impressive running ability and a slap-and-dash offensive approach at the plate. His profile quickly changed in college, when he filled out and moved to a corner outfield position, and after hitting .315/.398/.449 in his 2019 freshman season, it looked like he might have the bat to profile in a corner at the next level. Teams wanted to see Martin tap into more power this spring to further give them confidence he could profile as a left or right fielder. While he did hit a career-best 11 home runs, that came with a .260/.352/.451 batting line and a 22% strikeout rate. Most of Martin’s home runs this spring went to right field to his pull side, but he does have some pop to drive balls to the left-center gap. While he was an above-average runner coming out of high school, Martin is more of a solid runner at the moment, with average tools across the board. His hitting track record over three years in the ACC could give teams some confidence in his bat-to-ball skills, and perhaps a more leveraged swing in the future could translate to more in-game power, but Martin did struggle with a wood bat in a brief 14-game stint in the Cape Cod League in 2019 (.167/.265/.233). His solid all-around collection of tools could make him an early Day Two selection.
