Marks, 27, went undrafted out of the University of Nevada-Reno, but spent part of the 2013 preseason with the Philadelphia Phillies and their Short-Season Single A affiliate, the Williamsport Crosscutters.

Marks spent the 2014 season with the Vallejo Admirals of the Pacific Association and the Washington WildThings of the Frontier League, pitching well enough to earn him a contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Marks compiled a 2-1 record and a 3.10 ERA in 26 appearances and seven starts in the Diamondbacks’ farm system in 2015 before rejoining the Independent ranks in 2016.

Marks played in the Australian Baseball League and the Mexican Pacific Winter League following his time with the Diamondbacks in 2015, before joining the Lemurs in the American Association for the 2016 season. Marks went 8-4 with a 3.83 ERA in 16 starts and 24 total appearances for the Lemurs last season.
