2017 Dodgers review: Justin Marks

MLB: New York Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Justin Marks spent the final five months of the season in the Dodgers’ system, and was on the 40-man roster for just over four weeks.


Marks pitched in one game of relief with the Rays, then was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on May 9, and optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.


Marks was designated for assignment on June 8 to make room on the 40-man roster for Fabio Castillo. Three days later Marks was sent outright to the minors.

The left-hander pitched 24 of his first 25 games with OKC in relief, posting a 4.19 ERA in 36⅔ innings. He started his final five games of the season, and as a starter posted a 6.66 ERA but did strike out 25 batters in 25⅓ innings.
