Dodgers claimed LHP Justin Marks off waivers from the Rays.

Marks was designated for assignment by the Rays over the weekend. The 29-year-old has made six appearances in the majors and had a 4.60 ERA over eight relief appearances and one start in Triple-A this year. He'll provide some bullpen depth with his new club.
May 9 - 3:34 PM

Rays designated LHP Justin Marks for assignment.

He was with the Rays for just two days filling in for Erasmo Ramirez who was away on paternity leave. There's a good chance he'll pass through waivers unclaimed and continue to provide bullpen depth in the minors for the Rays.

Rays purchased the contract of LHP Justin Marks from Triple-A Durham.

Justin Marks retired all nine Phillies he faced Sunday in the Rays' 8-0 victory.

Marks, Tommy Hunter and Xavier Cedeno combined on a no-hitter for six innings before Danny Farquhar and Ryan Garton allowed one hit apiece in the latter stages of the game. The 29-year-old Marks had the opportunity to go to Korea last month, but he opted to stay put and try to make the Rays. While he was a big long shot at the start of camp, he'd seem to have a real opportunity now; he's thrown 10 scoreless innings and the Rays have one more spot available with Brad Boxberger down.
Mar 19 - 4:08 PM

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times hears that left-hander Justin Marks will remain with the Rays.

There has been some chatter about Marks signing with a team in the Korea Baseball Organization, but apparently he's staying put. The southpaw was re-signed to a minor league deal back in December. The 28-year-old made four appearances at the major league level in 2016 and posted a 3.86 ERA and 127/53 K/BB ratio over 140 innings in Triple-A.
Feb 8 - 11:10 AM

Rays re-signed LHP Justin Marks to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Marks allowed just one run over nine innings out of the Tampa Bay bullpen in 2016, though his minor league numbers don't project anything nearly as promising moving forward. The 28-year-old southpaw will remain organizational pitching depth for the Rays.

Rays sent LHP Justin Marks outright to Triple-A Durham.

Rays purchased the contract of LHP Justin Marks from Triple-A Durham.

Marks made one appearance with the Royals back in 2014, but he has earned his way back to the majors with a strong performance in the minors this season. The 28-year-old compiled a 3.86 ERA and 127/53 K/BB ratio over 140 innings with Durham.

Rays LHP prospect Justin Marks tossed a no-hitter Saturday in a win for Triple-A Durham.

It was the International League's first nine-inning no-hitter in two years and it was also the first complete game of Marks' career. The left-hander finished with seven strikeouts and two walks while pitching to three batters over the minimum. 70 of his season-high 130 pitches went for strikes. Before Saturday, Marks had been winless in his previous nine starts. The 28-year-old made one big league appearance for the Royals in 2014 but hasn't been back since.

Rays signed LHP Justin Marks to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Marks has appeared in just one major league game, pitching for the Royals in 2014. Otherwise, the 28-year-old left-hander's a career minor leaguer. He spent the entirety of the 2015 campaign with the Diamondbacks' Triple-A Reno outfit and held an uninspiring 5.63 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 84/50 K/BB ratio across 108 2/3 innings (28 games, 19 starts). There's little in his numbers to suggest that he's primed for any sort of legitimate major league work in 2016.
Wed, Jan 13, 2016 05:24:00 PM

Rangers released LHP Justin Marks.

The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Jerome Williams. Marks has been in three different organizations since the beginning of June and will now be on the move again.

Rangers claimed LHP Justin Marks off waivers from the Athletics.

The A's had to remove him from their 40-man roster in order to add Friday's starter, Brad Mills. Marks allowed three runs over two relief innings for the Royals earlier this season and has put up a 5.03 ERA over 34 Triple-A frames. He'll represent minor league depth.
