The White Sox announced a $ 1,375,000 deal on Thursday, the day after a one-year agreement with outfielder Adam Engel to avoid arbitration.
The 30-year-old Marshall finished 2-1 at 2.38 ERA in the 2020 season, which was shortened between his first playoff appearance in the White Sox since 2008 and his first winning season since 2012. Marshall marked his second season with the White Sox, scoring 30 strikeouts and 1.06 in 22 2/3 innings with 8 holds and whipping more than 23 relief appearances. He averaged his career’s highest 11.91 strikeouts per nine innings and limited his opponents to .198 batting average (17 to 86), including .119 marks (5 to 42) vs. left-handed.
First signed by the White Sox as a free agent on October 30, 2018, Marshall has a 2.45 ERA in 73 1/3 innings and a 6-3 record in 78 appearances in the last two seasons. Marshall was one of the nine White Sox pitchers who won the mound in the third game of the American League Wild Card Series, losing to A, throwing two innings, and throwing the best 45 pitches of the season.
Staff ace Lucas Giolito and right-handed pitcher Reynaldo Lópes represent only the two remaining arbitrated players in the White Sox. Marshall will once again play an important role in the bullpen featuring Aaron Bummer, Garrett Crochet, Codi Heuer, Matt Foster, Jace Fry, Jimmy Cordero, and the expected addition of veterans.
