BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Chet's son, Marcus Lemon can play second base or shortstop effectively and draw a few walks, which might be enough for a bench job down the line.
2009 The son of Chet, Marcus Lemon doesn't have enough of a bat to be an everyday player, but his defensive skills and baseball intelligence should help him land a utility role.
2008 The son of Chet, shortstop Marcus Lemon is a good defender with a patient approach, which is enough for him to be classified as a sleeper by some.
2007 Marcus Lemon is Chet`s kid. Like dad, he`s a fantastic defender, only this time the position is shortstop, not center field. It cost the Rangers a million dollars to buy him away from college, and he rewarded them with better than expected batting.

2008-08-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marcus Lemon, who turned 20 earlier this summer, is doing nicely in the Cal League - do you like him much?
(Tim from Bakersfield )
I though he was one of the better sleepers in the Rangers system coming in, and now that the system has exploded, maybe even more so. (Kevin Goldstein)
