Indians designated RHP Shaun Marcum for assignment.

Marcum was just called up on Sunday and allowed one run over five innings in his lone appearance. However, the Indians booted him from the 40-man roster in order to call up catcher Brett Hayes. The veteran right-hander should latch on elsewhere as rotation depth.
Apr 14 - 1:20 PM

Indians purchased the contract of RHP Shaun Marcum from Triple-A Columbus.

Marcum was limited to just 17 1/3 minor league innings in 2014 as he worked his way back from thoracic outlet surgery, but he pitched well this spring (1.29 ERA). He'll be used in long relief.
Apr 12 - 10:00 AM

Shaun Marcum said Sunday that he will report to Triple-A Columbus.

The veteran right-hander remains in big league camp, but has already been informed by manager Terry Francona that he will not make the Opening Day roster. He has pitched well in Cactus League play, compiling a 1.29 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 2/0 K/BB ratio over seven innings of work.
Mar 29 - 4:20 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Shaun Marcum, Bruce Chen and Scott Downs would not make the Opening Day roster.

Each of the three veteran hurler's were informed of such on Tuesday but we're told they could remain in big league camp. It's unclear if any of the trio will want to seek opportunities elsewhere.
Mar 24 - 7:19 PM

Shaun Marcum was scratched from a four-inning minor league appearance Saturday to be with his wife for the birth of his child.

Marcum returned to Kansas City for the birth, which will be his third child. He should rejoin the Indians in short order to continue his quest to win a roster spot.
Mar 21 - 5:14 PM

Shaun Marcum fired three shutout innings in Monday's Cactus League start versus the Royals.

Marcum yielded only two hits while walking none and striking out two. Through three spring outings spanning seven innings, the right-hander has allowed just one run. The odds are still against him making the Indians' starting rotation, but he'll give the team something to think about if he keeps pitching well. Marcum said he might consider a reassignment to the minors if it came to that, per's Jordan Bastian.
Mar 16 - 6:42 PM

Indians re-signed RHP Shaun Marcum to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Marcum was limited to just 17 1/3 minor league innings in 2014 as he worked his way back from thoracic outlet surgery. The soon-to-be 33-year-old isn't a good bet to contribute much at the major league level but is worth a shot on a minor league deal.

Shaun Marcum has been activated at Triple-A Columbus and pitch as a reliever.

Marcum has been sidelined all season due to a shoulder issue, but recently returned to action in the Arizona Rookie League. He has only been stretched out to 2-3 innings so far and figures to function as organizational depth.

Shaun Marcum has been shut down in extended spring training due to shoulder problems.

Not a big surprise given his injury history. Marcum is rehabbing from thoracic outlet surgery and doesn't appear close to returning to the majors.

Shaun Marcum (thoracic outlet surgery) threw three innings in his most recent extended spring training appearance.

Marcum is progressing slowly but surely in his recovery from thoracic outlet surgery. The Indians have provided no timetable for the veteran right-hander's return. He has an opt-out clause for May 24 on his minor league contract.
Sun, Apr 20, 2014 01:12:00 PM

Shaun Marcum's next opt-out date is May 24.

Marcum accepted an assignment to Triple-A Columbus last week to continue his rehabilitation from thoracic outlet surgery. The veteran right-hander could become a rotation option for the Tribe by late April.
Mon, Mar 31, 2014 08:30:00 AM

Indians reassigned RHP Shaun Marcum, RHP Matt Capps, C Matt Treanor, and C Luke Carlin to minor league camp.

No real surprises among this round of cuts. Marcum is on his way back from thoracic outlet surgery and will continue his rehab against Triple-A competition.
Thu, Mar 27, 2014 11:57:00 AM

Shaun Marcum may not opt out of his contract with the Indians if he's not on the Opening Day roster.

"This organization has treated me well," Marcum said on Wednesday morning. "The training staff, the front office, coaching staff, the guys in the clubhouse. This is where I want to be, so we'll see what happens if that day comes. The main thing right now is to try to pitch for the Cleveland Indians." Marcum is working back slowly from thoracic outlet surgery and his prospects for Opening Day are bleak, but he threw well in a live batting practice session Tuesday. The right-hander could provide nice starting depth for the club if he does decide to stick around.

Shaun Marcum (thoracic outlet surgery) will throw another live batting practice session Tuesday.

Marcum has been brought along slowly this camp as he works his way back from thoracic outlet surgery. He won't have time to compete for the fifth starter job but should serve as nice rotation insurance at Triple-A.
