09/28/2019 - 2019 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures East Marcus continues to show as a top prospect. Defensively at 1B, defensive abilities are at a pro level as he shows active prep with fluid actions. He works around the GB and through it as he gains ground toward his target. Footwork around the bag is solid and he is a quality receiver. Exchange is clean with strong throws, displaying zip. Backhand is smooth with a quick release. At the plate, he has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation. Barrel is whipped through the zone (91 mph exit velocity) as he connects with strength. The ball jumps off of his barrel as he crushes it to the gaps. With 2 years to further develop, Marcus has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from top collegiate coaches and pro scouts with his baseball abilities.
