The Pirates announced Sunday that Martin will be included as one of 19 players on the team's taxi squad for the 2020 season, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Martin will also be a member of the Pirates' broader 60-man roster pool, thereby making him eligible to see big-league action in 2020. The Pirates are unlikely to turn to Martin barring a rash of personnel losses, however, as the 20-year-old has yet to see any action above the High-A level. The first-base prospect split the 2019 campaign between Low-A Greensboro and High-A Bradenton, slashing .254/.351/.558 with 35 home runs and 129 RBI in 131 games.
