 Biographical Information
Brandon Martin was a first-round pick in 2011.
Martin hit .354 with 33 runs as a high school senior. Baseball America rated him as the third-best defensive high school shortstop. He had a commitment to Cal State Fullerton, then switched to Oregon State University; the decision became moot when he signed after the draft. The Tampa Bay Rays took him 38th overall in the 2011 amateur draft; the choice was compensation for the loss of Rafael Soriano. He was the 4th of ten Tampa first-rounders, following Taylor Guerrieri, Mikie Mahtook and Jake Hager and preceding Tyler Goeddel, Jeff Ames, Blake Snell, Kes Carter, Grayson Garvin and James Harris.
