Indians SP Shaun Marcum accepts Triple-A assignment


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2015) Indians veteran right-hander Shaun Marcum has cleared waivers and will return to Triple-A Columbus, MLB.com has reported.

Marcum proved inconsistent during his six-start stint with Cleveland. He followed an outing in which he pitched seven shutout innings by allowing six runs in two innings to the Cubs, motivating the Indians to designate him for assignment with a 3-2 mark and 5.40 ERA.


Indians place SP Shaun Marcum on waivers a day after 17-0 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2015) A day after a poor outing against the Cubs, the Indians removed starting pitcher Shaun Marcum from the roster, as he was designated for assignment Thursday.

Marcum only lasted two innings during Wednesday's 17-0 loss. He allowed six runs on six hits and one walk.

The veteran right-hander tossed seven scoreless innings in his previous start. He went 3-2 with a 5.40 ERA in seven outings (six starts) for Cleveland.


Indians SP Shaun Marcum lasts two innings on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/17/2015) Indians starter Shaun Marcum got pummeled against the Cubs on Wednesday. The veteran right-hander gave up six runs on six hits in just two innings of work, with all six runs coming in the second inning. He walked one and had no strikeouts.

In that second frame, Marcum gave up a pair of two-run home runs to each Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell. It was just the beginning of the offensive onslaught for the Cubs, as they wound up winning 17-0 on Wednesday.

The nightmare outing for Marcum breaks a string of three straight starts of allowing three or fewer runs. He'll look to turn things around in his next start, scheduled for Monday at home against the Tigers.


Indians SP Shaun Marcum holds M's to two hits in win Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2015) Indians starting pitcher Shaun Marcum had arguably his finest start of the season during Thursday's 6-0 win against the Mariners. Although, Thursday's outing might have passed for one of the best in his career as well.

Marcum (3-1) was unhittable for 4 1/3 innings Thursday. He didn't allow his first hit until Mark Trumbo's single with one out in the fifth inning. The only other hit Marcum allowed was a leadoff douvle to Robinson Cano in the seventh inning.

Marcum did not walk a batter and struck out five. He did hit one batter and threw 68 of 106 pitches for strikes.

''It was nice to go out there and be able to locate the ball and take what I've been doing between starts and actually have it happen,'' Marcum said, per the Associated Press.

The right-hander will be back on the mound Tuesday against the Cubs.


Indians' Shaun Marcum suffers first loss in 23 months


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) Indians starter Shaun Marcum took the loss on Friday against Baltimore, dropping to 2-1 on the season. 

The loss was Marcum's first since July 6, 2013. He was out of the Major Leagues all last season. 

"Seems like it has been a rollercoaster," Marcum said of his four starts since getting called up from Triple-A. "One start is decent and the other one not so good. I'm trying to get better each time. My mechanics and arm slot felt better this time."

Marcum allowed three runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings. He walked one and struck out four. His next start will be Thursday, against Seattle. 


Indians pitcher Shaun Marcum strikes out five in win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Indians pitcher Shaun Marcum allowed two runs on five hits in 5 1/3 innings of work on Saturday in Cleveland's 4-3 win over the Mariners.

Marcum made just one mistake in the outing when he allowed a two-run shot to Robinson Cano in the third inning. Marcum settled down after that and finished with five strikeouts and three walks.

"It was a grind. It was definitely a mental grind," Marcum said, per MLB.com. "I think I was cussing at myself pretty much the whole game. But, to be able to go out there and give these guys a chance to score some runs, and give us a chance to win, is the most important thing."

Marcum, now 2-0, moved his ERA to 5.49 in 19 2/3 innings of work this season. He will look to keep things rolling Friday against the Orioles as he attempts to try and solidify his grasp on the fifth-starter role.

"It would be huge, especially the way the other guys are throwing the ball," he said, "to just go out there and put up a quality start in that five hole. I think that's definitely very important. Hopefully I can go out and continue to do that."


Indians P Shaun Marcum allows 7 earned runs in no-decision


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Indians pitcher Shaun Marcum struggled with his time on the mound during Monday's 10-8 loss to the Rangers. 

Marcum only lasted 2 2/3 innings and gave up seven earned runs. He did strike out six batters but walked three and gave up four hits. Two of those went for home runs. Both of the homers occurred in the first inning. 

Marcum recorded three consecutive outs in the second but was rocked by the Rangers in the third. He now has an ERA of 6.28. He received a no-decision for his appearance in this game.

"I put ourselves in a hole early," Marcum said to MLB.com. "Those guys did a great job of fighting and battling. The offense did a good job of coming back and giving us a chance." 

This was Marcum's second start of the season. 

His next start is projected for Saturday against the Mariners. 

"Shaun left some balls middle and [you] saw where they went," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "The guys that he left balls up to, Beltre and Fielder, are very good offspeed hitters. Those are guys that, if you make a mistake, that's what they can do to it."


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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) The Indians have purchased the contract of pitcher Shaun Marcum and recalled pitcher Austin Adams from Triple-A Columbus.

Marcum allowed just one earned run in seven innings this spring while striking out two. Adams was optioned Friday but is able to be recalled before the mandatory 10 days due to the injury to catcher Yan Gomes.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Indians added that each of the pitchers can stay in camp if he wishes, but it's possible some or all could explore other opportunities.  Chen has posted a 5.00 ERA in nine spring innings, while Downs has delivered a 3.38 ERA in 5 1/3 innings. Marcum has allowed just one earned run in seven innings.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Indians pitcher Shaun Marcum was scratched from his minor-league outing Saturday so he could fly to Kansas City to be with his wife, who is giving birth to the couple's third child, per MLB.com.

Indians' Shaun Marcum would consider assignment to minors


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Pitcher Shaun Marcum is fighting for a spot in the Indians starting rotation. After three shutout innings on Monday, cutting his spring ERA to 1.29, Marcum made a strong case for winning the job. 

Marcum struck out two and allowed two hits, throwing 26 strikes in 44 pitches. 

After the game, he told MLB.com's Jordan Bastian that the Indians were a "class organization", and he would consider an assignment to the minor leagues, if he didn't win the job. 


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."


Indians' Shaun Marcum healthy, ready to contribute


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Indians pitcher Shaun Marcum is healthy, and hoping to contribute this season, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Marcum missed nearly all of 2014 while recovering from thoracic outlet syndrome, but feels 100 percent now. Marcum said this is the best he's felt since "2011 or early 2012." While Marcum has mostly been a starter in his career, he said he would be fine taking on any role with his new club.

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."

The 33-year-old posted a 5.29 ERA over 78 1/3 innings back in 2013.
