Different year, same story for the Astros. It appears another top prospect is being called up!

According to reports, the Astros are calling up Corbin Martin to pitch in the rotation. It also looks like he will make his debut tomorrow.

Martin was drafted out of Texas A&M with the #56 overall pick in 2017. This pick was awarded to the Astros following the Cardinals hacking scandal. Martin attended Cypress Ranch HS in Cypress, TX, just 30 minutes away from downtown Houston.

Martin has posted great numbers in his minor league career to include a 2.31 ERA and 193 K in 179 innings. This season he has a 1.48 ERA with 28 K in 24.1 innings. He has also allowed just a .191 BAA in his minor league career. Astros are adding another electric, young arm.
