Florida State baseball’s Robby Martin has been taken in the 2021 MLB draft. Martin was selected with the 230rd overall pick in the 8th round by the Colorado Rockies.

Martin simply hit from the time he stepped on FSU’s campus. In his freshman season, he was a Freshman All-American and named to the ACC All-Freshman team. He hit .324 in the shortened 2020 season. He finished off his time at Florida State as a third-team All-ACC member.

In three seasons at Florida State, Martin hit .293. He drove in 119 runs in 134 games played. He saw an increase in power this season that helped his draft stock. After entering the season with four career homers, he hit 11 in 2021. He was second on the team in 2021 with 51 RBI. The outfielder also led the team with three outfield assists as he made massive defensive strides in his time in Tallahassee.
