  • Royals' Alec Marsh: Contract selected

    Marsh's contract was selected by the Royals on Tuesday.

    The move means Marsh won't be available for selection in the Rule 5 draft. Marsh spent the bulk of last season with Double-A Northwest Arkansas, where he struggled to a 7.32 ERA in 25 starts despite a 27.4 percent strikeout rate.

  • Royals' Alec Marsh: Whiffs nine in 2022 debut

    Marsh (undisclosed) covered 4.2 innings for Double-A Northwest Arkansas in Wednesday's 8-5 win over Wichita, striking out nine while allowing two earned runs on two hits and two walks.

    Marsh didn't make any appearances after June 15 of last season due to an unspecified injury, but he's seemingly back to full health to begin the 2022 campaign. He pitched well in his season debut Wednesday, pumping in 52 of 77 pitches for strikes while holding opposing hitters to a .125 average on the night. Since Marsh only made six starts for Northwest Arkansas in 2021, the Royals may want to give the 23-year-old an extended look at Double-A to begin the season before entertaining a promotion to Triple-A Omaha.

  • Royals' Alec Marsh: Out with undisclosed injury

    Marsh has not pitched since June 15 due to an undisclosed injury.

    This has been a particularly tough minor-league injury designation to track down. He logged a 4.97 ERA in six starts at Double-A prior to suffering the injury, but his 39.6 percent strikeout rate and .217 batting average against were strong marks. It was his 12.3 percent walk rate that was the big problem for the 23-year-old righty.

  • Royals' Alec Marsh: Receives camp invite

    Marsh received an invitation Friday to Kansas City's major-league spring training.

    The 22-year-old joined the team's 60-man player pool in mid-September last year and spent the final couple weeks of the season at the alternate training site. Marsh had a 4.05 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 38:4 K:BB over 33.1 innings at rookie ball during 2019 and is likely to begin 2021 in the lower minors.

  • Royals' Alec Marsh: Added to player pool

    Marsh joined the Royals' player pool Saturday.

    The 2019 second-round pick will work out with the Royals' coaching staff for the final two weeks of the season, though his addition to the pool is almost certainly for purely developmental purposes. He's made just 13 career professional starts, all at the rookie ball level.
