According to various reports, the Mets have claimed Jay Marshall, a lefthand pitcher, off waivers from Oakland. As you can tell by this photo, Marshall is a sidearm pitcher, dropping his arm below his shoulder. See other photos here.
Marshall, 26, went 0-2 in 7 1-3 innings last season with Oakland. He posted a 14.73 ERA and 1.773 WHIP. He struck out one, walked none and surrendered one home run.
In 50 2-3 innings in Triple-A last season, he posted a 3.20 ERA and 1.342 WHIP. He struck out 30 and walked 15.
Enjoy Buffalo, Jay.
Also, he has a beard.
