Indians designated RHP Shaun Marcum for assignment.

Marcum was shelled for six runs in two innings by the Cubs on Wednesday, watching his ERA rise to 5.40. He did have a few promising outings for Cleveland, so the 33-year-old right-hander may draw interest on waivers from teams in need of starting pitching depth.

Shaun Marcum was lit up for six runs in two innings by the Cubs on Wednesday.

If the Indians had it to do over again, Marcum would have gone back out for the third. They ended up using nine pitchers on the night, two of them outfielders. It's the second time Marcum has been positively lit up, but since he's been solid in five of his seven outings, he should keep his spot.

Shaun Marcum put himself back in the win column against the Mariners on Thursday afternoon, firing seven innings of shutout ball in the 6-0 win.

Despite throwing just 68 of his 108 pitches for strikes, Marcum struck out five without walking a batter in the contest. The Mariners managed just a Mark Trumo single and a Robinson Cano double against the pitcher. With the sterling outing, he lowered his ERA to 4.09. He'll take that number, plus a 1.09 WHIP and 30/10 K/BB ratio (over 33 innings), into a road start against the Cubs next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 11 - 2:56 PM

Shaun Marcum suffered his first loss of the season on Friday, surrendering three runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings against the Orioles.

Marcum punched out four and walked one on the night. The O's broke through for a pair of runs in the fourth inning, then broke a 2-2 tie with a solo homer from Adam Jones in the sixth. Marcum will bring a 5.19 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 25/10 K/BB ratio into Thursday's matchup against the Mariners.
Jun 5 - 10:11 PM

Shaun Marcum won Saturday after allowing two runs in 5 1/3 innings versus the Mariners.

Marcum struck out five in improving to 2-0. He gave up a two-run homer to Robinson Cano, but that was the only damage. The home run ball is likely to continue to plague him, making him a mediocre AL-only option at best.
May 31 - 3:00 AM

Shaun Marcum was ripped for seven runs over just 2 2/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

He did manage to somehow record six of his eight outs via the strikeout, but little went right in this one for Marcum. The veteran righty yielded four hits -- including a pair of home runs -- while walking three. Marcum pitched well in a start last week, but the Indians probably need to give T.J. House another shot before long. For now, the righty is in line to face the Mariners in Seattle this weekend.
May 25 - 8:19 PM

Shaun Marcum picked up his first win in two years after allowing two runs in 6 2/3 innings against the White Sox on Wednesday.

It's nice to see Marcum back in the majors after all he's dealt with the last couple of years, particularly since he was last seen going 1-10 for the Mets in 2013. Still, he'll be a rather risky play in AL-only leagues if he stays in the rotation. The long ball is going to be his issue; he allowed two tonight.
May 20 - 11:50 PM

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

Marcum will get the ball on Wednesday against the White Sox in what will be his first start in the majors since July of 2013. He's pitched well at Triple-A with a 1.36 ERA in five starts, but fantasy owners should probably steer clear.
May 20 - 3:05 PM

Shaun Marcum will be called up to start for the Indians on Wednesday against the White Sox.

Marcum has pitched well this season, allowing one run over five relief innings with the big club while boasting a 1.36 ERA in five starts at Triple-A Columbus. He was limited to just 17 1/3 minor league innings in 2014 as he worked his way back from thoracic outlet surgery, as this will be his first start in the majors since July of 2013.
May 17 - 1:15 PM

Indians sent RHP Shaun Marcum outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Marcum was designated for assignment by the Indians on Tuesday and passed through waivers unclaimed. The veteran right-hander did a decent job in his one appearance with Cleveland, allowing just one run and fanning four over five innings in emergency relief.
Apr 15 - 4:22 PM

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.
