Indians SP Shaun Marcum set in No. 5 role for now


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) The return to health of former No. 5 starter T.J. House will have no effect on current place-holder Shaun Marcum, who has cemented the spot for the Indians, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Marcum proved himself worthy Wednesday with a strong start in which he earned a win against the host White Sox. He has allowed three runs in 11 2/3 innings this season.


Indians' Shaun Marcum serves up two homers in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Indians pitcher Shaun Marcum earned a win on Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on four hits in 6 2/3 innings while striking out six and walking none in his team's 4-3 victory over the White Sox.

Marcum (1-0) gave up both of his runs on homers, one coming in the third inning for the first run of the game, and the other in the bottom of the seventh when the Indians had a 4-1 lead. He's allowed just seven hits in his two games, but three have been home runs.

"Early on I was struggling ... a little too anxious, a little too excited in the first couple of innings. But the change up was my go-to pitch tonight," Marcum said, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "As the game went on, I got stronger, so I was able to locate my fastball a lot better.

"Brett Hayes called a great game and the guys made some plays behind me."

Marcum owns a 2.31 ERA and 10:3 K:BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings. He's lined up to face the Rangers on Monday if he sticks in the rotation.


Shaun Marcum will start for Indians on Wednesday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) The Indians will start Shaun Marcum in Chicago on Wednesday, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Marcum had a five-inning relief appearance for Cleveland in early April. He is 4-0, 1.36 in five starts with Triple-A Columbus. 


Bruce Chen will pitch in relief, Indians unsure of fifth starter


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Indians manager Terry Francona said that Bruce Chen would pitch in relief for the time being, per MLB.com. 

Chen started on Saturday and gave up six runs on 10 hits in four innings. The Indians will likely look to Shaun Marcum , currently at Triple-A Columbus to fill the fifth-starter role the next time through the rotation. 

Francona told the media on Tuesday that the Indians are still "working through" the fifth-starter situation. 


Indians considering Bruce Chen, Shaun Marcum for fifth starter


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) The Indians aren't sure who the fifth starter will be for the next turn through the rotation. 

T.J. House is still on the disabled list and not expected back in time to start next Friday, the next time the Indians will need a fifth starter. 

Bruce Chen filled the role on Saturday, but the veteran gave up six runs in four innings. Manager Terry Francona said Chen might be used in relief for the next few days, per Cleveland.com.

Shaun Marcum is another option. He allowed four hits in eight shutout innings in his most recent start at Triple-A Columbus.

"There are a few ways this could go," Francona said. 


Report: Indians veterans Bruce Chen, Shaun Marcum up for Saturday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Lefty Bruce Chen and righty Shaun Marcum are the two primary candidates to be promoted by the Indians from Triple-A Columbus to replace shelved T.J. House in the rotation, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

The veteran that is chosen would start Saturday against the visiting Twins. Both have an ERA of 2.00 or under at their current levels.

Chen and Marcum performed well in spring training before their placement in the minors. Marcum was brought up briefly and yielded one run in five innings to Detroit in relief on April 12.

The fifth spot is wide open. House performed terribly in that role before going down. If Chen or Marcum pitch well, the spot could be nailed down long-term.

Indians' Shaun Marcum may not make final roster for opening day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) Indians pitcher Shaun Marcum has not pitched in a major league game since July 2013 and it may be what keeps him from making the final roster this spring, reports Cleveland.com.

Manager Terry Francona likes what he's seen from Marcum, including two scoreless innings Friday.

"I think he was probably pretty excited," said Francona. "It's been a long haul for him back. He's never been a guy who lights up the radar gun, but I thought he threw some really good change-ups."

However, it may not be good enough for him to make the team.

"To be totally honest, that's a difficult evaluation," he said. "It's spring training and he hasn't pitched for a while. We told him we'll be honest and conscientious because it's not an easy one to do."


Indians' Francona comfortable with battle for No. 5 in starting rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

House, Danny Salazar, Shaun Marcum, Bruce Chen and Zach McAllister all competing for the final spot of the Indians' rotation, manager Terry Francona told reporters that a few players may end up going to Triple-A or moved to the bullpen once camp breaks, per the Plain Dealer.

"At the moment, we're comfortable," Francona said. "We've all seen where you look up a month later and things happen. The one thing you don't ever want to have happen is have your season derailed because guys go down. You try to come to camp with not only who you think are going to be your five, but you have to have some depth. We have some guys who will probably end up going to Triple-A. Maybe a guy or two ends up in the bullpen. You never know."

Manager Terry Francona said Marcum will determine his own workload this spring. "He really hasn't pitched a lot in the last couple of years, but he is competing like everybody else," Francona said. "We told him that if he needs extra days to tell us. But in fairness to him, treat him like everybody else and we'll be really honest with him where we think he stands."

Marcum, however, is just happy to be competing. "I'm 100 percent. Everything is full go," he said. "I have a full camp, just like everyone else here. We'll see what happens."
