Matt Marksberry - 2017-18 Melbourne Aces
Marksberry is a former MLB player and American import who played with the Melbourne Aces during the 2017-18 ABL season. Marksberry had pitched in 35 games for the Atlanta Braves between 2015 and 2016. According to the ABL website "At the conclusion of the 2016 season, Marksberry was placed in a medically induced coma after suffering seizures and a collapsed lung during a non-baseball related medical procedure." He was subsequently released by the Braves in March 2017, with his season in the ABL an attempt to get a step back into the visibility of MLB organisations.
