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. Read Past Outlooks

Elbow
July 31, 2019
Martin (elbow) was traded from the Astros to the Diamondbacks along with J.B. Bukauskas and two other prospects in exchange for Zack Greinke, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Corbin underwent Tommy John surgery in early July and could miss the entire 2020 season, but he gives the Diamondbacks a potential mid-rotation starter a couple years down the road. The 23-year-old righty logged a 5.59 ERA in five MLB starts, but had a 3.13 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 37.1 innings at Triple-A.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against this season's data (min 70 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
