07/20/2010 - Cape Cod Training 2010 - Session 3
Martin is a young (2013) two-way player at SS plus on the mound with a thin, athletic frame that shows projection as he continues to physically mature, filling out. He has improved in his defense and hitting since we last saw him in January. Defensively, his feet are active in coming to get the baseball, but he needs to be more aggressive in playing through it on his throws. Glove action is presented down and out front as he displays soft, clean hands. Throws are from an over the top slot with accuracy, but getting on a consistent long toss program will help to develop more arm strength. He is a fearless defender that shows a lot of confidence. Offensively, Alcoverde shows a solid setup as he loads his hands well. Swing path is level as he keeps hands through the baseball at contact. Power numbers will continue to increase as he learns to utilize his lower half and adds muscle strength. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 58-63 mph with occasional sinking action. Breaking ball displays tight spin with gradual break. Stock on the mound will rise as more arm strength is developed. He is a good, young athlete with good baseball instincts, and with 3 years to further develop, Martin has time and room to further improve.
