|Martinez reaches the mid-90s with his fastball. He hasn’t pitched much yet, but he’ll open 2015 at age 20.
Martinez pitched in relief in the DSL. He missed some bats, but obviously had trouble locating the strike zone.
The Pirates moved Martinez up to the GCL, where he made significant strides with his control while also getting hit harder.
Martinez returned to the GCL bullpen, where his peripherals weren’t as good as his ERA.
Martinez will turn 22 early in the 2017 season. He could open at Bristol.
