Marshall is expected to open the season as part of the White Sox's bullpen, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
After four unremarkable MLB seasons in Arizona, Seattle and Cleveland, Marshall was a non-roster invitee to White Sox camp in 2019. He opened at Triple-A Charlotte and pitched well there before a May 1 callup. He never saw Charlotte again. He posted a 2.49 ERA while pitching mostly in the seventh and eighth innings. He'll return as a key component of the 'pen, but there were indicators in 2019 that some good fortune was involved in his 2.49 ERA. Indicators such as his FIP (4.29), high walk rate (4.3 BB/9), low BABIP (.266) and high strand rate (85.2 percent).
Marshall and the White Sox agreed to a one-year, $1.1 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Marshall recorded a strong 2.49 ERA in 50.2 innings of relief for the White Sox last season. His 19.6 percent strikeout rate and 11.5 percent walk rate were both worse than average, however, meaning he could be primed for regression in 2020.
Marshall (3-2) allowed two unearned runs on a hit and three walks in one-third of an inning, taking the loss in a 6-5 decision against the Angels on Saturday.
His only out came via strikeout. Marshall entered with one out and two on in the seventh inning and walked David Fletcher to load the bases. Mike Trout's two-run single allowed the inherited runners to score, and then an error brought Fletcher around before Brian Goodwin drew a bases-loaded walk for the second run on Marshall's watch. The outing won't damage the 29-year-old's ERA, which is at 2.70 through 33.1 innings. He has accumulated 10 holds in 38 appearances this season.
Marshall (3-0) earned the win Tuesday, working around one hit in two-thirds of an inning against the Cubs.
Marshall was the pitcher of record when Eloy Jimenez dropped a two-run, ninth-inning home run to give the White Sox the win. Marshall, who has not allowed an earned run and walked just three in 17 innings, has been the winner in three straight appearances. He and Aaron Bummer have emerged as the White Sox's bridge relievers to closer Alex Colome.
Marshall (2-0) picked up the win Thursday against the Yankees by tossing a scoreless inning with one hit and two strikeouts.
Marshall came in to pitch the seventh inning and allowed a single to Mike Tauchman. Otherwise, the 29-year-old struck out Clint Frazier and Aaron Hicks while Leury Garcia launched a go-ahead homer in the eighth to hand Marshall his second win of the year. Through 16 games, Marshall owns a perfect 0.00 ERA with a 0.73 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB.
Marshall allowed a hit and struck out one in a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Royals.
Marshall has not allowed a run in 13 innings since his contract was purchased from Triple-A Charlotte. That's on top of the 10 scoreless innings he authored for the Knights in the Triple-A International League. The 29-year-old right-hander told Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, "I'm throwing the ball better now than I ever have, with a sense of [throwing] to the glove, with a purpose, and a step-by-step working through at-bats. Not just throwing, but thinking my way through." His success prompted manager Rick Renteria to bring Marshall into a tense spot Friday -- the sixth inning with the bases loaded and one out in a tied game -- but he permitted a two-run single (runs that were charged to starter Ivan Nova). Marshall could move to more high-leverage work, ahead of Jace Fry (5.79 ERA) and Kelvin Herrera (7.04), the relievers who opened the year as Chicago's setup crew.
Marshall's contract was purchased by the White Sox on Wednesday.
Marshall has thrown 92.2 major-league innings over parts of five seasons, posting a 5.15 ERA but a considerably better 4.00 FIP. Neither his 19.5 percent strikeout rate nor his 9.2 percent walk rate is particularly good, but he does generate groundballs at a high rate (55.9 percent). Thyago Vieira was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
Marshall agreed to a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Friday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.
Marshall will provide added depth to Chicago's bullpen, though he'll have to show some improvement during spring training to warrant a spot on the Opening Day roster. He only appeared in 10 games for the Indians last year, posting a disastrous 7.71 ERA. He fared much better at the Triple-A level, logging a 1.13 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with 21 strikeouts across 24 innings.

It's currently uncertain how many appearances the Indians want Marshall to make before activating him from the DL.

George Kontos was recalled from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding roster move and will take Marshall's place in the bullpen.

Marshall was sent down less than a week ago but will return to replace Andrew Miller (knee) on the roster.

Marshall is inactive for Triple-A Columbus due to personal reasons.
It's unclear what the issue is, so it's hard to estimate how long he'll be out of action. In eight appearances for the Clippers this season, Marshall allowed just one run in 10.2 innings while producing an 8:1 K:BB.
