Indianapolis first baseman Mason Martin had a strong month of April from start to finish, putting up a .303/.349/.671 slash line in 20 games, with eight doubles, four triples and four homers. He’s 3-for-3 in steals, and his defense at first base has saved some errors for his teammates in the infield. It was an all-around strong performance, and it earned him the recognition as Pirates Prospects Player of the Month for April.
Martin had a nice season at Altoona last year, while turning 22 years old mid-season. He hit .242/.319/.481 in 113 games, with 29 doubles and 22 homers.
