WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Martinez was nearly 19 when he signed, which is a relatively late age. He has decent size for a lefty and throws in the upper-80s, with a good change and also a curve.
Despite the ERA, Martinez struggled, mainly with his control, in limited action. He made just six relief appearances. Over half the runs he allowed were unearned.
Martinez missed much of the season with some sort of arm injury. He made only four brief appearances in relief, only one after mid-July.
Despite the lack of experience, the Pirates brought Martinez to the GCL. He made just one appearance, facing two batters, and didn’t return.
Martinez is still with the Pirates, so he’ll probably try again to stay healthy in 2019.
