The cousin of big leaguer Chris Marrero and minor leaguer Christian Marrero, infielder Deven Marrero was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the 17th round of the 2009 amateur draft. He did not sign, opting instead to attend Arizona State University. He was then chosen by the Boston Red Sox in the first round of the 2012 amateur draft, with the 24th overall pick. Scouted by Vaughn Williams, he soon signed for a deal worth just over $2 million and made his pro debut on June 24th with the Lowell Spinners.
On April 14, 2018, playing for the Arizona Diamondbacks against the Los Angeles Dodgers, he lost a home run on a play that is usually just a curiosity of the rule book: passing a baserunner. With runners on first and second base in the 4th, he hit a ball to center field and, unsure whether the ball would clear the fence, the runners, Chris Owings at second and Alex Avila at first, stayed close to their base. However, Marrero was running at full tilt, and he inadvertently passed Avila as he rounded first, putting him out in spite of the fact the ball cleared the fence. Both runners did score, though, so he received credit for a two-run single. Avila accepted the fault for the cross-up, although first abse coach Dave McKay thought the blame should be directed to him for not warning the two runners in time. In the end, the mix-up did not matter as Arizona won the game handily, 9-1.
