Top 10 Thunder players for 2012 - No. 2: Brett Marshall



Bio: Out of Sterling High School, in Baytown, Tex., New York took Marshall with its sixth-round selection in 2009. He stands six feet tall and checks in at just less than 200 pounds. He uses a hard, heavy fastball to get his outs, with a good majority chunk of those outs coming on the ground. 

2011: That Marshall had an ERA of 3.78 -- the eighth best in the organization -- is something of a miracle, considering how badly he pitched in April, when he allowed 21 earned runs (23 runs overall) in 21 innings.

After the calendar changed, a switch flipped, and Marshall began to pitch like a prospect again.

From May 1 until the end of the season, the 21-year-old (he'll turn 22 on Thursday), he went 8-4 with a 2.87 ERA, allowed 116 hits in 119 1/3 innings, struck out 100 hitters against 40 walks, got grounders at a nearly 2-to-1 ratio, and held the opposition to a .264 ERA.

What's Next: Marshall is an almost certain lock for the Thunder's Opening Day rotation, and he'll more than likely spend most of the year with the team.

I basically took off every restriction that I could find. It means a ton of spam comments get through, but if yours get through, then it's worth it.
