DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Nick Martinez set to make his debut in Texas later this week, will you provide a scouting report on him? He seems to have been flying under the radar a bit compared to some of the other Ranger pitching prospects.
(Chad from OKC)
I've seen him a bunch since he signed, but I don't think he belongs in the discussion with other Rangers pitching prospects. He has pitchability and is a plus athlete, but I have him graded as a middle-reliever, with a good low-90s FB and a playable SL that he can manipulate. I don't think he's going to miss enough barrels or bats at the major league level, but I don't think he will run away from the challenge. He's a smart kid with balls. He should be around the game for a while. (Jason Parks)
