Marcum sent to triple-A

Postby abrage22 » Sat Aug 23, 2008 7:22 pm

Blue Jays optioned RHP Shaun Marcum to Triple-A Syracuse.

The notion of Marcum being demoted back to the minors would have seemed absurd in mid-June, when he had a 2.65 ERA and 86/27 K/BB ratio in 98 2/3 innings spread over 15 starts. However, an elbow injury sidelined him for a month and he's posted a 6.19 ERA and 23/16 K/BB ratio in seven starts since returning from the disabled list. General manager J.P. Ricciardi indicated Saturday that the move is temporary, saying that the Blue Jays plan to "give him a couple starts down in Triple-A just to see if he can get his mechanics back together." Count on Marcum being back in September, but until then journeyman John Parrish will fill his spot in the rotation.
