2023 MLB DRAFT: Brayden Marx, RHP — Pleasant Grove (UT)

A Utah native, Brayden Marx has largely gone under the radar as a result, but is a premium RHP committed to Hawaii. With a high-school no-hitter for Pleasant Grove and a limited amount of appearances at national events showcasing a low 90’s fastball, he’s earned his way into 2023 MLB Draft consideration.

FSS Event History: Marx attended the San Diego Regional Combine at the end of 2021, which earned him an invite to the National Combine the following year. That, you guessed it, got him a look at the Main Event last year, where he took the ball at Fenway Park and struck out four.

Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 600: 389

Joe Doyle on Marx:

Marx is a hard-throwing, reasonably unknown righty out of the state of Utah. He can rush it up to 96 in early innings, but generally sits 91-94 if he’s getting stretched out over the course of a start. Marx has a repeatable operation with fantastic arm-speed and tilt in his hips. The lower half and plant leg are a little stiff, coupled with his size, some scouts see a reliever at the next level. Still, amped up, Marx has the making of a guy who sits in the mid-90s with a breaking ball that can approach 3000 rpm with sharp bite. Marx is committed to Hawaii.
