Overall Summary
Martin displays a cognizance of the game, which helps to play-up his awareness and range in the field. The bat is light, and he is a gap-to-gap style hitter that will need to make contact to provide value at the plate. His approach is advanced, which may help to play up his fringe bat. Martin is a high-floor player that lacks any impact tools outside of the glove, but the glove will provide value.
