Former Rays prospect Brandon Martin gets life in prison after murdering three people with baseball bat

Former Tampa Bay Rays prospect Brandon Martin has been sentenced to life in prison after murdering three people, including his father, with a baseball bat, according to Nathan Fenno of the Los Angeles Times.

Martin will not be eligible for parole during the sentence.

Martin, 27, was selected in the first round of the 2011 MLB draft by the Rays. He went in the supplemental round and was the No. 38 overall pick. Martin, a shortstop, spent three seasons in the minors, hitting .211/.281/.371 over 628 plate appearances. Martin did not play in the minors following the 2013 season. He was released by the Rays in March 2015.
