2020 Fantasy Outlook
Last season was an eventful one for Martin, as it included his major-league debut, Tommy John surgery and a trade to Arizona. The surgery will knock out most or all of Martin's 2020, rendering him irrelevant during draft season in redraft leagues, but much of his prospect promise remains for dynasty formats. Martin pitched well in 37.1 innings for Triple-A Round Rock, striking out 28.5% of opposing batters en route to a 3.13 ERA. He didn't fare nearly as well in five big-league starts, however, struggling to a 5.59 ERA and a 13.0% walk rate while giving up eight homers. It may take a long time for him to get the chance to improve those numbers, but the fact that he was good enough to headline a trade for Zack Greinke even after undergoing surgery speaks to his potential. Assuming his recovery goes well, Martin should one day be a mid-rotation starter with mid-90s heat, a plus slider and a good changeup. Read Past Outlooks

July 23, 2020
The Diamondbacks placed Martin (elbow) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The Diamondbacks likely aren't counting on Martin being a major contributor in 2020 after he underwent Tommy John surgery last July, but the fact that he was included in the 60-man player pool at least implies that his rehab is going according to plan. He'll likely be a top candidate to shift to the 45-day IL at some point later this season in the event the Diamondbacks need to open up a spot on the 40-man roster.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Martin has a pretty classic "safe mid-rotation starter" profile. Of course we know there is no such thing as a pitching prospect with a safe mid-rotation starter projection, especially when said pitcher has not yet pitched at Triple-A, but he has the qualities found in that type of pitching prospect. He was unhittable in 19 innings at High-A and was promoted to Double-A on May 1. At his best, Martin locates his mid-90s fastball to all four quadrants, enabling him to get ahead in the count. He induced groundballs close to 60% of the time in the lower levels -- that rate dipped to a still solid 47.3% at Double-A. His slider, curveball and changeup all project as at least average pitches. Unlike many Astros pitching prospects, Martin was allowed to pitch deep into games, logging six-plus innings in seven of his 21 appearances at Double-A. If he improves one or two of his secondary pitches, we could feel pretty confident in that No. 3 starter projection.
