Listed at 6-foot-7, 220 pounds, Markus is an imposing presence on the mound. At this point, however, he remains mostly about projection. He appeared in 16 games out of the bullpen for Indian River (Fla.) JC as a freshman, posting a 6.39 ERA and a 21-to-17 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 31 innings. Markus is still learning how to harness his physicality and refine his delivery.
