Marc Cornell

RHP
Name: Marc Cornell
Born: in
Throws: R
Drafted in the 19th round (561st overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2004
RHP Marc Cornell was so impressive leading up to last year's draft that his name was floated as a possible No. 1 overall pick. But the 6-foot-2, 215-pounder hurt his arm late in the year and slipped to the fifth round, and it has been downhill since. He missed several starts this season with persistent arm problems. When he did pitch, his fastball was in the 90-93 mph range--down 3-4 mph from a year ago--and it lacked sharpness as he struggled to regain his confidence. The result was a 1-2, 10.42 record. Cornell's arm problems in 2003 were traced to tendinitis, the same malady that plagued him in 2002. After a summer of rest, he seemed to be back on track last fall when he experienced no soreness, but he knew something wasn't right when he heard a clicking sound in the front of his shoulder when his fastball reached 90 and above. An MRI revealed nothing, but arthroscopic surgery detected a flap of tissue growing across the humerus bone and he had it removed. Tendinitis persisted this spring, leaving his draft status unclear.
