    Player Outlook

    Evan Marshall flashed some potential in 2014, striking out 54 hitters in 49.1 innings while recording a 2.74 ERA. For Arizona the last two seasons, however, Marshall has posted ERAs of 6.08 and 8.80. The biggest difference: Marshall's lack of strikeouts. In 2014, he posted a 9.85 K/9. That dropped to 4.73 in 2015 and failed to climb that high at 5.28 last season. His fastball averaged 93.4 mph last season, which wasn't far off from the 93.9 mph he averaged in 2014, so it appears his stuff is about the same. If Marshall is able to start racking up more strikeouts, he could move into a higher-leverage role in 2017. He did post 19 holds in that 2014 season, so Arizona could regain confidence in Marshall late in games.

    Player News
    • Marshall has been dropped from the 40-man roster and designated for assignment, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. The move was made to clear room for Christian Walker, who was just claimed off waivers from the Reds. Marshall was once the Diamondbacks' most reliable setup man (back in 2014), but his struggles over the past two seasons left him as a long shot to crack the 25-man roster. His unimpressive spring numbers -- .391 batting average against -- ultimately led the Diamondbacks to deem him expendable.

    • Marshall was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday. Marshall was one of the Diamondbacks' most reliable setup men in 2014, but his performance has fallen off a cliff in both of the last two seasons, which put him on the outside looking in for a bullpen role heading into spring training. He proved far too hittable in Cactus League play with opposing batters piling up a .391 average against him, so he'll need to correct his flaws in Reno before he receives consideration for a promotion to the Diamondbacks.

    • Marshall was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday, Jody Jackson of Fox Sports Arizona reports. Marshall struggled during his short stint in the majors, posting a 19.20 ERA and 3.43 WHIP over just 2.1 innings pitched.

    • Diamondbacks' Evan Marshall: Recalled from Triple-A

      Marshall was Marshall will restore some depth in the Diamondbacks' bullpen after the team dealt away Tyler Clippard to the Yankees earlier Sunday. Don't expect Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale to turn to Marshall for high-leverage duty right away after he submitted a 6.92 ERA and 2.15 WHIP across 13 innings with Arizona earlier this season.

    • Diamondbacks' Evan Marshall: Sent to Reno
      By RotoWire Staff

      Marshall was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday. He'll try to get back on track in the minors after posting a 6.92 ERA and 2.15 WHIP over 13 innings with Arizona. Marshall has been unable to replicate his 2014 success with the D-backs over the past two seasons, shuttling between Triple-A and the big leagues, and suffering a near fatal head injury after getting struck in the head by a comebacker at Reno last season.
