I don't remember reading anything about his arm while he was a prospect, but sheesh......his arm is just lethal.

A throw in from center field when he played for Altoona was allegedly clocked at 100 mph.

Really? I think I saw more mentions of his arm that any of his other skills.

My favorite story is the time one of his teammates at Altoona, who was tracking pitches with the radar gun for the night, decided to turn the radar on for a Marte throw from the outfield. 101 miles per hour.
