Meet A Prospect : Brett Marshall

Brett Edward Marshall was born on March 22nd 1990 in Highlands, Texas. Brett was drafted in the sixth round of the 2008 Major League Baseball First Years Players Draft out of Sterling High School in Sterling, Texas after going 10-2 with a 2.27 ERA  and 116 strike outs as a senior on his way to winning the All-Greater Houston Player of the Year award. He also batted clean up for that senior team and put up an impressive line of 10 home runs and 49 RBIs while hitting for a ridiculous .440 batting average. The Yankees offered him enough money to get him out of his letter of intent to Rice University with a signing bonus of $850,000 plus another $200,000 for his college education to go with a $7,500 incentive package that triggers as he moves through the Yankees system. With a 6'0 195 lb frame he is on the smaller side of big enough to not have durability concerns and will be entering his age 23 season in 2013. 

Brett Marshall is a recent Tommy John surgery recipient in 2009 and has come back healthier with a good season in 2011 with the Tampa Yankees and then a break out 2012 season with the Tampa Yankees and the Trenton Thunder. His first season removed from Tommy John surgery was in 2010 and Brett stopped in three Yankees minor league affiliates including the Tampa Yankees, Charleston Riverdogs, and the Gulf Coast League Yankees compiling a combined pitching line of 4-2 with a 2.57 ERA 84 IP with 70 Ks and a 1.06 WHIP. In 2011 he built on his first healthy season back from the surgery with a line of 9-7 with a 3.68 ERA in 140 IP while compiling 114 Ks and a 1.354 WHIP. In 2012 his final stat line was a 13-7 record with a 3.52 ERA in 27 starts and 158.1 IP. Along the way Brett compiled 120 strike outs to go with a .255 batting average against.
