P-Sean Marshall???

Postby Philliebuster » Wed Apr 26, 2006 9:49 am

Anyone care to share some info on him? He's not giving up alot of hits and not walking alot so far relative to other youngsters in the game. His minor league stats look good about a K per inning with a great ERA. I haven't heard much about him....3 solid starts so far in the bigs....being that the last was against the Marlins...he did out duel Dontrelle.

Doing some research:

http://www.thebaseballcube.com/players/ ... hall.shtml

It does appear that his walk/9 ratio is a bit high from highschool to the minors, however he does look to have improved jumping from each level to the next with an almost 9K/9 ratio.

he's been doing well, but he's not worth picking up just yet unless you've got lots of bench spac in a keeper. It was under 40 degrees witht eh wind blowing in last night at Wrigley. There was at least one hit off Marshall that would have been a HR under average game conditions. If he if worth owning, it won't be till the 2nd half.

After last night 28 innings pitched and 18 hits given up with a .872 Whip...not too shabby. Granted he has faced Stl, Pit, LA, Fla, Pit, pretty impressive. Anyone actually see him pitch can give some insight?

He's got a nice curveball and decent control. Somewhere there's a thread that also points out the Cubs schedule in the immediate future includes a lot of teams that you might have a reasonable expectation won't be hitting all that much. Not that I'm trying to curse the Cubs or anything, he IS a rookie and could VERY WELL get POUNDED although he survived his second outing vs. the Pirates and, at times, looked as if he'd figured THEM out more than they figured him out.

Here's the Cubs' schedule for the next month

Here's the other thread

I didn't get to see the game, yet another late night at work, but I absolutely love that he doesn't give up walks. First off because I'm in a WHIP league, and second of all because it'll keep him out of trouble.

Any Cubs fans know if they have him on a pitch count? I was a little disappointed to see him pulled with only 90 pitches when he was only in modest trouble.[/url]

I think he was in the 7th or 8th inning, man on 1st and 2nd and no outs...good that he had such a low count late in the game, but also wise to take him out IMO. Proved to work well for the team.

i think he is a good short term add. not sure if he can keep it up but i've seen him throw once and he looked pretty solid. i picked him up when patterson went on the DL. he as a relatively easy schedule coming up. he could get pounded, but then again some of top of the rotation guys (zambrano) are getting pounded too.

FYI the cubs did say they intended to limit his innings in the early going so he may get pulled a little earlier than the usual cubs starter.

I saw him pitch in a ST game (I know, it's ST) and he looked really good. He's got a great frame and an amazing, amazing breaking ball. I picked him up this week as a 2-start pitcher in my $$$ league (Pit and @SD). I think he'll keep his spot in the rotation when Wood and Prior get back (if that ever happens). They have won all 5 games Marshall has started and the only run Marhall gave up shouldn't have happened because the runner was clearly out of the baseline going to 3rd and they should have had the DP, making the ground out that scored the only run the final out and the run not counting. He's looking very solid. I'd definately take a flier on him. Maddux has taken him under his wing like we see Schilling always talking with Beckett. The kid has some potential. Not a huge fastball for his size, but he's young and I think it'll come. Definately get him in a keeper leauge.

He was throwing his curveball for strikes deep in counts which gave him some points in my book.
