RHP/SS Shaun Marcum is another short pitcher (6 feet) with big stuff. He has a plus slider and sits at 91 mph with his fastball, and his stuff should get better once he turns pro and gives up being an everyday shortstop. He has good defensive actions though not enough bat to be a position player at the next level. Marcum also has fine command plus a decent curveball and changeup, so he could get a look as a starter. He certainly has enough stuff to succeed out of the bullpen, as he thrived in the Cape Cod League last summer and owns Southwest Missouri State records for single-season and career saves. The latter mark previously belonged to Zimmerman.
