Marcum Quietly Excelling in Fifth Rotation Spot

To talk about the Indians this season is to talk about spotty play and trying to figure out ways to make the current roster pop. You talk about inconsistent offense and, at times, horrible defense, and you talk about being strapped by huge contracts for players who aren’t really producing. You talk about a shaky bullpen. You also talk about phenomenal starting pitching. The Indians...

Urshela, Marcum Lead Tribe Past Seattle in Finale; Indians 6, Mariners 0

The Indians used a strong start from Shaun Marcum, a four-run third and Giovanny Urshela’s first career hit and homer to beat the Mariners, 6-0 on Thursday afternoon.

Revisiting the Brett Lawrie for Shaun Marcum Trade

How often are we told baseball—or any sport—is a business? A player gets cut; just business. A player gets traded; business. So-and-so isn’t called up for a couple of weeks so the team will control him for another year. You guessed it … business. Then there are the human personalities involved, projections, analysis, and so on. One day, just like any other, a trade occurred...

Ball Played: Shaun Marcum rules the night for Indians

Shaun Marcum is the type of pitcher who is easy to root for. He was not a blue chip prospect, and he actually transferred from the University of Missouri to Missouri State University to get noticed by MLB scouts as he excelled on their 2003 College World Series team. Despite that achievement, however, he was still not deemed an elite prospect due to his relatively short stature...

5/20 Recap: Marcum Tosses a Gem and The Tribe Holds On

Roster Update: Shaun Marcum needed to be promoted to make tonight’s start (he may make more as well depending on the health and ability of T.J. House) and in order to make room on the 25 man roster, Zach Walters was sent back to AAA. During his time with the team, Walters went just 1/17 with eight strike outs and no walks. Player of the Game Shaun Marcum gave the Indians a better...

Marcum Looking to Make Most of Big Break

One man’s bad break can become another man’s golden opportunity. Such is the case for Shaun Marcum, trying to complete a two-year comeback to the big leagues. Entering spring training Marcum was likely on the outside looking in at the Tribe’s Opening Day 25-man roster, but now that Gavin Floyd has been sidelined with a broken arm, Marcum could be one of the pitchers in line...

Indians' Shaun Marcum cleared to throw from the mound

The Cleveland Indians entered 2014 Spring Training following a 92 win season and a wild card berth.  Even with last season's success, the Indians enter camp with 23 pitchers on their 40-man roster, so there is plenty of competition for spots on the staff.  One pitcher to watch is right-hander Shaun Marcum, who is coming back from a neck and shoulder issue that bothered him last...

Indians take a flier on injury-prone starter Shaun Marcum

Shaun Marcum alone is not a game-changer. But with relatively little possible cost and minimal team risk, the Cleveland Indians just added a bit more upside to their 2014 roster. Yesterday, the 32-year-old former Milwaukee Brewer and Toronto Blue Jay reached agreement with the Tribe to compete for the open No. 5 rotation spot. Marcum has struggled to stay on the mound for years,...
