Top 10 for 2011 - No. 8: Brett Marshall
No. 8 - Brett Marshall
2010 Season: Out of college, Marshall told the Yankees that one of his goals was throwing 100 miles per hour. That seems to have been a poor choice. He had Tommy John surgery last July, and didn't re-emerge until June, when he did some rehab work in the GCL. He ultimately threw 72 innings with Charleston before a late-season bump to Tampa, where he will begin 2011.
What's Next: If I were 100 percent sure Marshall would be at Trenton sometime in 2011, he would be much higher. That said, there's a big ol' logjam at the upper levels, and a couple of other pitchers who could see promotions before Marshall. He'll start at Tampa, but with some movement, could see Double-A at the end of the year.
