Scouting Report

Martin is a stocky, strongly built athlete with impressive tools in many areas. First is his hit tool, which has plenty of upside. He hits from a wide base and produces big bat speed. He tends to over swing at times and when he's under control he's a much better hitter. He also flashes some arm strength that could make a good right field candidate as a pro depending on how his power continues to develop.
