PG Grade: 10
Harold Martinez is a 2008 SS/3B with a 6'3'', 185 lb. frame from Miami, FL who attends Braddock HS. He has a lean athletic build with excellent strength projection and is often compared to a young Alex Rodriguez physically. Martinez is an average runner (6.89 in the 60) but every one of his other tools grades out as plus/plus or right near the top of the scale. He's an outstanding defensive infielder with easy, fluid actions and arm strength that only ranks behind Ethan Martin in the 2008 class. Defense comes very easily to Martinez and watching him play second base, a position that is probably pretty unfamiliar to him, during games and make big league plays with flair and little effort was exciting. Offensively, Martinez received a "10" grade in every evaluation by PG scouts at the National Showcase. He has a calm pro style approach at the plate and explodes his hands through the ball with excellent bat speed. He showed big power to right centerfield in batting practice and turned around a couple of pitchers throwing 93-94 mph in games with solid contact. He is timed for fastballs at this point and will struggle some with off speed pitches but his explosion and bat speed is exceptional and will play better the higher he gets. Martinez is one of the top players in the 2008 class and has a great future. Selected to 2007 Aflac All-American team.
