BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 The A's were hoping for a left-handed version of Brad Ziegler when they took Jay Marshall in the Rule 5 draft two years ago, but instead they've gotten a double-digit ERA.
2008 Claimed by the A's in the 2006 Rule 5 draft, Marshall was coming off a season in which left-handed hitters in the Carolina League did almost nothing against him (.096 with no walks and 87 of their 94 outs coming via a strikeout or ground ball), but the difference between High-A and the majors is the difference between Pong and PlayStation 3. Big-league lefties hit .296 against the sidewinder last year, but despite his struggles, they managed only four extra-base hits and no home runs off him in 71 at-bats, while his ground-ball percentage remained outstanding. Marshall had an eventful winter as the Red Sox picked him off waivers when the A's tried to slip him through, only to have Oakland return the favor, reclaiming him, then outrighting him to Triple-A, where they hope he'll be able to build on his major league experience and work toward a return engagement with the big club.
2007 Jay Marshall is Tony La Russa`s wet dream. Left-handed hitters went 10-for-104 against him in 2006 with two doubles and eight singles. His groundball-to-flyball ratio against lefties was 61-to-11. Marshall generates those numbers with a sidearm motion that starts almost completely behind left-handed hitters thanks to his long arms; lefties may lose ten feet worth of reaction time before they pick up the baseball. The flip side is that Marshall is as bad against righties as he is good against lefties. The A`s acquired him in the Rule 5 draft, and he has a good chance to contribute in the big leagues, but he`ll need to be platooned as carefully as Manny Mota`s 1975 Strat card.
