YearComment
2012 Half of the organization's haul for saying adios to Ozzie, Martinez saw his prospect flame dim significantly last year while hacking away like a futility-infielder-in-waiting for the Marlins. With average speed, little power, and questionable range at short, he’ll need to rediscover the patience he demonstrated in 2010 to have any chance of moving past the more leather-capable Eduardo Escobar and into a big-league utility role.
2011 Martinez's season capped a comeback from an incident that nearly killed more than a career: he was shot three times in a mistaken-identity drive-by shooting in Puerto Rico in September 2009. If there's a wild-card scenario where HanRam moves to center or third sometime soon, it will be because Martinez is a legit prospect. He may not have ideal range, but he's strong-armed and coachable. Despite his youth, Martinez's batting has improved markedly the last two years as he's advanced; he has improved his strike-zone recognition, has a better understanding of what he can and can't do with breaking stuff, and possesses enough line-drive power to exploit a quick swing. He won't push Ramirez, not right away, but he might outshine Dominguez (and Coghlan too) sufficiently to make the club, and from there the contrast to HanRam will be increasingly obvious.
