Marsh's contract was purchased by the Angels on Friday.
As the team's top prospect with Jo Adell no longer prospect eligible, Marsh was a lock to be protected from the Rule 5 draft. He is an outfielder by trade but started working a little at first base at the alternate training site in order to give himself more avenues to break through with the big club. Marsh figures to debut sometime during the 2021 season.
Marsh may not make his major-league debut in 2020 due to the Angels' current outfield depth, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
With the Angels clinging to fading hopes of a playoff spot, their outlook on calling up prospects over the final few weeks of the season could change depending on their place in the standings. As it stands, they have a fairly set outfield with Mike Trout, Jo Adell and the resurgent Justin Upton playing on a near-everyday basis. Marsh has been getting reps at first base at the team's alternate training site, though the fact that he has yet to play an intrasquad game at that position suggests that he is far from ready to do so at the major-league level.
Marsh has been getting reps at first base at the Angels' alternate training site in Long Beach, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
It's doubtful that the Angels want to convert Marsh to the infield on a full-time basis given his above-average defensive skills in the outfield, but becoming comfortable at first base could accelerate the 22-year-old's ascension to the majors considering the team's lack of depth at the position. While the big-league outfield includes Mike Trout, Jo Adell and a current platoon of Justin Upton and Brian Goodwin, the team does not have a true first baseman on the active roster to back up the aging Albert Pujols. Marsh isn't far from reaching the majors, and developing the ability to fill in at first could help him log more playing time once he gets there.
Marsh was activated from the 10-day IL and is training with the Angels' alternate training camp.
Marsh was placed on the 10-day injured list for undisclosed reasons at the start of summer camp, but was then removed when the regular season began. Marsh is in the 60-man player pool but not on the 40-man roster, which makes it unlikely he'll be called up to the majors in the near term. However, after posting an .811 OPS in 96 games for Double-A Mobile, he could be a factor if the Angels need to make an aggressive move in the outfield this year. However, he's more likely to contend for a job in 2021.
Marsh (undisclosed) did not make the Angels' 30-man roster.
Though he is among the top prospects in the Angels' system, Marsh was not expected to break camp with the club since he has yet to move past the Double-A level. The 22-year-old will instead open the campaign at the team's alternate training site.
Marsh (undisclosed) arrived at camp Tuesday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Marsh had yet to report for undisclosed reasons and was placed on the 10-day injured list in early July. He's yet to be officially removed from that list, but he's evidently been cleared to practice with his teammates. While he's part of the Angels' 60-man player pool this season, he's yet to reach the Triple-A level, so he's unlikely to fill a major role with the big-league squad.
Marsh was placed on the 10-day injured list for undisclosed reasons Wednesday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.
If Marsh's absence were due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Angels wouldn't legally be able to confirm. The young outfielder is a member of the Angels' 60-man player pool, though he's yet to reach Triple-A and isn't on the team's 40-man roster, so his chances of playing a significant role this season appear slim.
Marsh will be part of the Angels' 60-man roster.
Marsh, who is not on the 40-man roster, received an invite to camp in January, but it was interrupted by an elbow strain suffered while playing defense. Now with plenty of time to rest and rehab, one of the team's top hitting prospects will get a chance to continue his development at the major-league level. Considering Marsh had been pegged for Triple-A to start the season, however, so it seems unlikely he'll still be in the outfield mix when the roster cut down to 30.
Marsh (elbow) will return to action Wednesday against Oakland, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Marsh strained his elbow on an attempted diving catch in late February. Returning Wednesday gives him plenty of time to get ready for the start of the season. After posting an .811 OPS in 96 games for Double-A Mobile last season, he'll likely head to Triple-A Salt Lake to open the year.
Marsh (elbow) is recovering well and could resume playing in Cactus League games as soon as this week, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Marsh strained his elbow while diving for a ball Feb. 23, but he appears on track to return to game action in the near future. The Angels' No. 2 prospect is likely to open the season in the minors regardless of how he performs during the remainder of the spring.
Marsh has begun playing catch as he recovers from a strained elbow, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
This is a small but meaningful progression for Marsh, who had previously been limited to "the throwing part" of the activity, per Ardaya. The Angels' No. 2 prospect could still appear in some Cactus League games if his recovery continues to move forward without any setbacks.
Marsh's (elbow) recovery is going smoothly, and he's optimistic that he could appear in some Cactus League games before spring training ends, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Marsh suffered a left elbow strain in late February that was expected to keep him sidelined for the entirety of spring training, but he could reportedly appear in some games before camp ends if his recovery continues to progress smoothly. The 22-year-old was effective in his first action at the Double-A level in 2019, and he could potentially debut at some point in 2020 if he continues to play well in the minors.
Marsh sprained his left elbow on a diving catch attempt Sunday and will be out for at least the rest of spring training and potentially longer, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
The highly-rated outfield prospect hit .300/.383/.428 in 96 games for Double-A Mobile last season. As long as he doesn't miss too much time at the start of the regular season, he could still be in contention to make his big-league debut sometime in 2020 if he gets off to a good start at the Triple-A level.
Marsh has been invited to spring training.
Marsh will open camp with the big-league squad as one of the organization's top prospects. He appeared in 96 games at Double-A last season (now Double-A Rocket City), finishing with a .300/.383/.428 slash line, seven home runs, 43 RBI and 18 stolen bases.
Marsh is hitting .294 (5-for-17) with five walks for Mesa of the Arizona Fall League.

Marsh was selected to play with Mesa in the Arizona Fall League, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Marsh has spent most of the season with Double-A Mobile, hitting .299 with 17 stolen bases, seven homers and 42 RBI in 92 games. The selection to the AFL will allow him to extend his season and compete with other top prospects.
Marsh (leg) was activated off the 7-day injured list Thursday and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base for Double-A Mobile.
Marsh moved to the injured list with a right leg injury at the start of June but rejoined Mobile on Thursday after a five-game rehab assignment with the AZL Angels. The 21-year-old is slashing .293/.396/.390 with one home run and 10 stolen bases in 46 games at Double-A.
Marsh was removed from Saturday's game with Double-A Mobile with an apparent right leg injury, Jared Tims of Diamond Digest reports.
Marsh appeared to suffer the injury between third base and home plate after hitting a triple Saturday, as he retreated to the base and remained on his knees. The 21-year-old was able to leave the field under his own power -- though he was limping -- but the specifics of the injury remain unclear.
Marsh (finger) is back in action for Double-A Mobile on Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Marsh missed a week after jamming his finger diving into a base. He's hitting .242/.330/.286 with one homer in 25 games for Mobile this season.
Marsh was placed on the minor-league injured list Tuesday with a jammed finger, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Marsh suffered the injury when diving back into a base but is reportedly doing fine. He's eligible to return Saturday, as the assignment was made retroactive to last Saturday, and could return as soon as he's first eligible.
