Hitting

Marin has a loud bat. He has a bit of a complicated swing, but he lifts well and squares the ball up very consistently.

Power

Fielding

Speed

Marin is a plus to plus-plus runner. He's going to be a significant stolen base threat at the professional level.

Summation

The value in Marin's game is the combination of athleticism and his hit tool. There's a lot of development required in his game but the upside is solid.
