RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Dodgers' top pick in the 2008 amateur draft, Martin hasn't got off to the best of starts in his pro career. His already-shaky command took a nosedive in 2010, as the 21-year-old posted a 6.35 ERA and 6.5 BB/9IP for High-A Inland Empire. Granted, the California League is a tough environment for pitchers, but that is still an overly-high walk rate. Martin had strong strikeout rates in his two professional seasons (10.8 K/9IP in 2009 and 8.4 last year), but he's got a ways to go to regain his top prospect status. Expect a High-A repeat in 2011.
A minor knee injury delayed the former first-round pick's pro debut until 2009, and Martin responded well to the full-season assignment. He finished with a 3.87 ERA and 120:61 K:BB in 100 innings for Low-A Great Lakes with opposing batters hitting just .232 against him. Command was obviously the big issue, but Martin is just 20 and has plenty of time to make adjustments. He'll open 2010 in the thin air of the High-A California League, and ultimately has the ceiling of a No. 2 starter.
The Dodgers drafted Martin as the 15th overall pick in the 2008 draft. A high schooler out of Georgia, Martin was thought of more as a third baseman than a pitcher, but his mid-90's fastball and advanced secondary offerings were too much for the Dodgers to pass up. Martin suffered a knee injury shortly after signing in July, forcing his pro debut to wait until 2009. Martin is a ways away from the majors, but the future looks bright.
