Yankees Designate Brett Marshall For Assignment

The Yankees announced that they have designated Brett Marshall for assignment.  The move will make room for the newly-signed Carlos Beltran on the 40-man roster.

Marshall made three big league relief appearances in the bigs last season but spent the lion's share of the year in Triple-A where he posted a 5.13 ERA with 7.8 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9 in 25 starts.  Baseball America ranked Marshall as the No. 6 prospect in the Yankees' system after the 2012 season and noted that he boasted the best changeup of any pitcher in the bunch.  Unfortunately for the Yanks and Marshall, the right-hander didn't shine in his first season at the Triple-A level.
