Marksberry was outrighted to Double-A Mississippi on Tuesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

Marksberry has seen great success at the upper levels of the minor leagues but that hasn't translated to the big leagues, as shown by his 5.06 major league ERA. He'll head back to the minors to act as organizational depth going forward.
