Cubs claim righthander Brett Marshall off waivers from New York Yankees


The Chicago Cubs today claimed right-handed pitcher Brett Marshall off waivers from the New York Yankees.  

Marshall, 23, made his major league debut last season with three relief appearances in two stints for the Yankees, pitching to a 4.50 ERA (6 ER/12.0 IP) with no record. He spent the majority of 2013 with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, going 7-10 with a 5.13 ERA (79 ER/138.2 IP) in 25 starts. Marshall tied his career high with 120 strikeouts and walked 68 batters. He was designated for assignment by the Yankees on December 19.

A native of Highlands, Texas, Marshall is 36-32 with a 4.07 ERA (278 ER/614.2 IP) in 115 career minor league games (113 starts) since the Yankees selected him in the sixth round of the 2008 draft. He spent the entire 2012 campaign with Double-A Trenton, going 13-7 with a 3.52 ERA (62 ER/158.1 IP) and a team-high 120 strikeouts in 27 starts. Following the season, he was tabbed by Baseball America as the Yankees sixth-best prospect.
