Drafted in the 4th round (136th overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2016 (signed for $600,000)
A showcase veteran and USA Baseball stalwart in his prep days, Martinez served mostly as a DH in his first two seasons at USC behind All-American Garrett Stubbs. He finally got to catch regularly for a disappointing Trojans club in 2016 and was one of the few bright spots. A below-average athlete and 20 runner, Martinez doesn't do it pretty, but he's got strength, knows the strike zone well and has become a good hitter who has adjusted his prep approach, when he appeared to be trying to mimic Albert Pujols. He has high contact ability and pull power while showing a better feel for using the whole field. He has a solid-average arm but lacks the athleticism and agility to be a strong defender behind the plate as a pro. Martinez profiles as a backup catcher who has the makeup to fit the job description.
