Rays Supplemental 1st Round Pick - 38th Overall: Brandon Martin

High school SS, good tools.

BaseballAmerica: (Rated #65 overall)
Perhaps the most improved prep player in Southern California, Martin has rocketed to the top of the region's thin group of high school infielders by showing off five legitimate tools this spring. He worked hard to add muscle in the offseason, and it paid dividends at the plate. Scouts used to question his bat, but now they praise his line-drive swing and bat speed. Some scouts think he'll develop at least average power, while others regard his power as fringy. He's a good high-ball hitter with an aggressive approach, and he could mature into a solid-average hitter. An average runner, Martin is a fast-twitch athlete who can make highlight-reel plays at shortstop, though he has plenty of work to do there. He has good range and a strong arm with good carry, but he's also an upright defender who tends to field balls deep and needs to smooth out his actions. He has a quiet personality but is a good teammate and a hard worker.
Brandon Martin is a 2011 SS/IF/OF with a 5'11'', 160 lb. frame from Corona, CA who attends Santiago. Martin has an athletic build, good actions in the infield, arm works well, good hands, easy arm strength, has bat speed, ball jumps off barrel, has pop, quick bat, hit well in games, very interesting all around player.
