Really struggle with his profile.  The power is great, but the K's are super concerning. Yes, he's young but the bat has to play because he really is only a 1B type.  Now one important thing to consider is if the NL goes the DH route, he fits the mold and it would seem to be something the League is considering but may take a year or two to implement.  That would likely coincide with Martin's ETA to the majors.

Still Ks too much, BB% is terrible. I get to see a lot of him in Altoona. For the rumors that he cut down on the swing and miss and everything at the alt site last year, it sure doesn't seem to be the case right now. Dude will, at this point barring a big change in approach, always be mega streaky.

The Ks are a problem, but the power is scary and he just turned 22 in AA. I'd love to see a "Matt Olson" type transformation happen with this guy because if he can sneak his K rate to <30% in the MLB, then he's going to knock a lot of balls into the Allegheny River. He's still young and has plenty of time to work on his game.
