Then & Now: Trevor Martin, Oklahoma State

THEN FEBRUARY 11, 2017: Six-foot-3, 200-pound athletic frame. Easily one of the most physically advanced freshman in the state. Uses a simple delivery, high leg kick, glides to the dish, lands slightly closed, spins to first base side on the finish. Full arm circle, drops the ball straight down out of the break, throws from a high-3/4, arm comes through with very little effort. Fastball sits 83-85 mph with tilt and late run when down in the zone. Changeup sits 76-79 with sink and depth. Curveball shows gradual break with 11/5 shape, 69-70 mph.

 

NOW MARCH 27, 2022: Martin shows a heater up to 97 mph to go along with some sharp breaking pitches. And it's easy heat, the kind that can project to triple-digits in the near future. It's also higher spin (2385-2450 rpm) with great carry to the plate and stays above the swing. Martin shows good feel to spin, both with tight, late action on an 85-86 mph slider and an 81 mph curve. He will also flash a lower-spin (1933 rpm) changeup. With a low heart rate he looks to be a great fit as the Cowboy closer, but it will be tough for the 2022 sophomore draft-eligible by age to build a Top 50 overall pick resume in this role. His stuff looked worthy of top round consideration, but at this point in his second year of college, his draft resume will need innings as a starter.
