2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Martinez signed with the Twins in 2013 out of Venezuela. In 2014, he played in the Dominican Summer League. He went 2-2 with a terrific 1.91 ERA. In 56.2 innings, he walked just 11 and struck out just 33. Despite the lack of strikeouts, scouts are impressed with his raw stuff. At 6-3 and just 175 pounds, he had room for growth. He has a good delivery with a whip-like motion. He can generate good velocity already, into the low-90s, but there is room for that to move up with strength. His secondary pitches will need work, but he has good control already which will help.
