2016

An afterthought in the Astros’ haul from Miami in the Jarred Cosart/Jake Marisnick trade, Martes may now be the most valuable player involved in that six-player deal. He has the look of a future frontline starter, thanks to a plus-plus fastball and one of the best curveballs in the minor leagues. His mechanics and changeup need refining, but the potential for two 70-grade pitches makes him a worthwhile target in almost all dynasty leagues. Last year he cruised through three levels, posting a 2.04 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 98:28 K:BB in 101.2 innings. Martes got to Double-A Corpus Christi in time to make three starts to close out the year, and may head back there at the outset of 2016. However, he is more accomplished than Lance McCullers was heading into 2015, and McCullers made 22 big league starts last year, so it's entirely possible that Martes is fast-tracked to the show if he picks up where he left off in 2015.
