I am not blown away by his BB:K and think that'll get exposed a bit, but his developing power that's showing through reminds me of Adam Jones (as well as the BB:K, though he doensn't k as much as Jones did). Would it be unreasonable to think he'll follow a similar Major League path too Jones? (remembering he didn't just burst onto the scene, for those thinking I'm saying Martinez could perform like Jones today).
I changed it to just his name so it doesn't seem like a player update. But from what I've heard about him from Minaya in some articles and what he said on WFAN, he expects him to develop into a 30-10 type of player. He has the speed to steal bases but he isn't the best base stealer so he may eventually get 15 or 20 in a year. And he was really showing what kind of power he had as of late in AAA so him eventually becoming a 30 HR guy is very possible.
