    Brett Marshall claimed of waivers

    From the Cubs per Rotoworld.

    Anyone know much about this guy?

    Minor league numbers don't seem that bad prior to last season. Very respectable K rate and a near 2:1 g/f. Seems like the ideal GABP pitcher. Scouting report says he has a nasty changeup. Could be a name to keep an eye on this spring.

    Re: Brett Marshall claimed of waivers

    Guy was pretty highly touted when he was still in the Yankees organization. Fangraphs had him in their Top 10 prospects going into 2012 (#7). Here was the write-up then:

    Marshall, 23, has his career back on track after missing parts of 2009 and ’10 due to Tommy John surgery. The right-hander has provided just shy of 300 innings combined over the past two seasons. He has a four-pitch repertoire with his two best offerings being am 88-93 mph fastball and a plus changeup. He also throws a curveball and a slider, both of which could become average offerings, although a contact I spoke with sees more current potential with the curve. “The slider has been behind the change as a secondary pitch but he is making progress with the slider,” he said.

    The consolation prize from the 2008 amateur draft — in which New York failed to sign first-rounder Gerrit Cole, who is now one of the Top 10 prospects in all of baseball for Pittsburgh — Marshall doesn’t have a huge ceiling but he could develop into a solid No. 3 or 4 starter capable of providing a ton of innings. He’ll open 2013 in triple-A, just a phone call away from New York in the event of an injury.
    Seems like another solid option to have in Louisville... Certainly not going to cry crocodile tears over it happening at HRod's expense.

    Believe I saw that HRod cleared waivers anyway and was outrighted so we've still got him as far as I know

    In fairness, Schumaker is a decent utility guy.

    I hear your point though.
    "The key to winning baseball games is pitching, fundamentals, and three run homers."
