We are at the quarter-pole mark in the baseball season. So far, it’s been another season of launch angle, home runs and strikeouts where a 4.30 ERA is league average and if you don’t hit 20 home runs, you have below-average power.
It’s also been a season of kids getting promoted and this week we get the Astros Corbin Martin. Drafted in the second round of the 2017 MLB Draft, Martin has gone from Texas potential to a fastball that can hit 97 with improving secondary pitches. The Astros keep churning them out and Martin is just the latest guy who throws hard and will help one of the best teams in baseball.
