by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Marksberry has been called up from Triple-A Gwinnett - quite remarkable since he began the year at Class A. He feels happy not just to be with Atlanta, but to be healthy enough to pitch after the accident.

"It was more of a shock," he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "It was one of those things where it was just a scary moment, and I'm happy to be alive right now."

The 24-year-old Marksberry was promoted just one month after moving up from Class A to Triple-A. He was quite effective in the minors, compiling a 2.74 ERA in 33 relief appearances and fanning 43 in 46 innings pitched.

He then picked up where he left off in his major league debut, hurling 1 2/3 scoreless innings on two hits Friday night against Philadelphia.
