Royals prospect Justin Marks leads Arizona Fall League in wins

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

The left-handed pitcher has shown consistency on the mound in five starts.

Kansas City Royals prospect Justin Marks has been a model of consistency while impressing scouts with his work in his first five starts in the Arizona Fall League.

On Thursday, Marks moved his record to 5-0 in the developmental league after giving up one run on four hits in his four innings on the hill, as his Surprise team beat Salt River, 6-5.

The 24-year-old left-hander finished has been strong in all five of his starts, becoming the first pitcher in the league to win five games. He's stuck to the same script for success, as well. In his last three starts, Marks' pitching line has been the same with one run given up on four hits in hour innings.

While Marks leads the league in wins, his 2.25 ERA is the fourth-best among Arizona League pitchers and his 1.18 WHIP is seventh.

Marks was a Texas League All-Star last season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas where he had a 3-5 record and 3.80 ERA in 17 starts before finishing the season in Triple-A Omaha.
