A scouting report at Baseball Prospectus last January ranked Marshall No. 11 among Yankees prospect rated his fastball (89-91) and change-up as solid-average pitches and said his breaking pitches were not impressive. It projected him as a number four or five starter.
Here are the details on Marshall's career, as provided by the Cubs:
Marshall, 23, made his major league debut last season with three relief appearances in two stints for the Yankees, pitching to a 4.50 ERA (6 ER/12.0 IP) with no record. He spent the majority of 2013 with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, going 7-10 with a 5.13 ERA (79 ER/138.2 IP) in 25 starts. Marshall tied his career high with 120 strikeouts and walked 68 batters. He was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Dec. 19.
A native of Highlands, Texas, Marshall is 36-32 with a 4.07 ERA (278 ER/614.2 IP) in 115 career minor league games (113 starts) since the Yankees selected him in the sixth round of the 2008 draft.

Following the season, he was tabbed by Baseball America as the Yankees sixth-best prospect.
