Background: Marks was a senior coming into this season and pitched for Tennessee Volunteers. After working in relief in 2014 Marks got thrust into a starter rotation spot. He pitched in thirteen games this year starting twelve of them. In 77 innings he pitched to a 2.92 ERA and struck out 89.
Stuff: The glasses wearing Marks doesn’t have big stuff. He throws in the 80’s with his fastball. But he has some funk to him and some deception.
My Take: Being a senior Marks isn’t much of a prospect because the stuff isn’t great. He might put up good numbers because he has a lot of experience and knows how to locate his pitches. But he will mostly be a minor leaguer that can talk to kids about the grind as he played ball in the SEC. This is a pick the Yankees might to add veterans to their squads. I wouldn’t’ be shocked if they had him in mind to work in the scouting department later on.
