Latest Showcase Report
2003 Southeast Top Prospect Showcase   Aug 08, 2003
PG Grade: 8.5
Although Martin only threw 85-87 mph from the left side, his deception and arm speed made him look like the fastest pitcher at the Showcase. He has a very quick arm and a somewhat unconventional arm stroke, stopping his hand high in back, that hides the ball well and plays havok with the hitter’s timing. Once the 6-3, 170 lb southpaw learns how to use his lower half better in his delivery, we could see a big leap in his velocity and we’ve heard that he’ll occasionally scratch 90 now. Martin’s best off speed pitch is a 78 mph change up that had good deception. His curveball is 72 mph with a short, slider type break. This kid is very good and his best years are still in the future. Might get some serious draft interest now, but he could end up being a very early pick out of college. Blake is an excellent student.
