Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 A flat stroke and plus bat-to-ball contact skills generate hard contact from line-to-line. He can occasionally get too pull-oriented, but at his best when utilizing middle-of-the-field approach.
Power 55 Sneaky pop in a compact frame. Good power to right-center field and enough strength to drive the ball to the opposite field. Hit oppo-HR against top LH pitching prospect MacKenzie Gore on 6/20/19.
Baserunning/Speed 55 Not a burner, but good quickness and moves well around bags. Good instincts and can steal the occasional base.
Glove 55 Can play all three OF positions, but may be best suited in a corner. Good routes and aggressive pursuit of the baseball maximize his range. Willing to sacrifice his body to make a play.
Arm 55 Good accuracy and a quick release will make runners think twice about taking the extra-base.

Martinez is an all-around ballplayer who can help his team win in a multitude of ways. He's able to provide plus-contact and on-base abilities at the top of a lineup, and be a plus-defender at any outfield position. He'd be a great "glue-guy" on a talented roster.
