Reds signed RHP Jason Marquis to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Marquis struggled in 2014 at the Triple-A level and had a rough 4.05 ERA, 1.52 WHIP, and 72/68 K/BB ratio in 117 2/3 innings with the Padres in 2013. If he appears in a major league game for the Reds this summer, it'll likely be an emergency start. The 36-year-old right-hander hasn't been an effective big league pitcher since 2009.

Phillies released RHP Jason Marquis.

Marquis posted a 4.63 ERA over eight starts with Triple-A Lehigh Valley and was evidently told that he wasn't under consideration for a September promotion. The 36-year-old will look to catch on with a minor league deal over the winter.

Jason Marquis (oblique) will rejoin Triple-A Lehigh Valley's rotation on Wednesday.

Marquis missed the previous three weeks of action with a strained right oblique. He posted a 2.22 ERA over four starts for Lehigh Valley before going on the DL and is an option to join the Phillies' rotation before long.

Jason Marquis has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Lehigh Valley due to a strained right oblique.

Marquis' contract included an opt-out on July 31, but the injury figures to keep him around for a little while longer. The 35-year-old right-hander has a 2.22 ERA over his first four starts in Triple-A.

Jason Marquis will start for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Marquis was signed to a minor league deal back on June 3, but he's been at extended spring training while he works his way back from Tommy John surgery. The veteran right-hander will give the Phillies some organizational depth.

Phillies signed RHP Jason Marquis to a minor league contract.

Marquis, 35, is currently making his way back from Tommy John surgery last August. He'll report to extended spring training Wednesday and could serve as depth for the starting rotation if he continues to make progress in his rehab.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that Jason Marquis (elbow) will throw for scouts on Friday.

Marquis auditioned for the Padres back in March but still hasn't signed on with anyone. The veteran starter is coming back from July Tommy John surgery but is hoping to be part of some team's rotation during the second half of the season.

Sirius XM's Jim Bowden reports that Jason Marquis (elbow) auditioned for the Padres Sunday.

Bowden says that Marquis was "impressive" in the throwing session. The veteran right-hander is seven months removed from Tommy John surgery and is expected to be game-ready by June. With Cory Luebke (elbow) out for the season and Joe Wieland's (elbow) status up in the air, the Padres could sign Marquis for depth purposes. The 35-year-old had a 4.05 ERA in 20 starts for San Diego last season.

Padres activated RHP Jason Marquis from the 60-day disabled list.

Marquis promptly declared for free agency. Marquis underwent Tommy John surgery in July and will likely be sidelined late into the 2014 season, a status that will obviously suppress his open market appeal. The sinkerballer posted a 4.05 ERA over 20 starts for the Friars this past season.

Padres transferred RHP Jason Marquis from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a sport for Chris Robinson on the 40-man roster. Marquis underwent Tommy John surgery last month and will likely be sidelined late into the 2014 season.

Padres manager Bud Black confirmed Tuesday that Jason Marquis (elbow) will have Tommy John surgery.

It appeared inevitable, as Marquis was recently found to have "significant damage" to the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. The surgery will likely leave him sidelined until late in the 2014 season. The 35-year-old will be a free agent this winter.

Padres manager Bud Black revealed Monday that Jason Marquis has "significant damage" to the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

It doesn't appear that the Padres have made firm plans yet, but this surely means that Marquis is headed for Tommy John surgery. The sinkerballer posted a 4.05 ERA over 20 starts for the Pads this season but will now likely be sidelined until the second half of 2014. He'll be a free agent this winter.
Mon, Jul 22, 2013 06:12:00 PM

Padres placed RHP Jason Marquis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 20, with a right elbow strain.

There's no word yet on the severity of the injury or who will be taking Marquis' spot in the rotation. Miles Mikolas has been recalled to take his spot on the roster.

Jason Marquis was spanked for six runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Cardinals.

He struck out zero and walked three in the dud. On June 15, Marquis was 9-2 with a 3.63 ERA. He hasn't won since and now sits on a 4.05 earned run average. Of more concern, Marquis has walked more batters than he's struck out in that span. Don't let the decent ERA fool you: He is not a good fantasy bet.

Jason Marquis gave up two runs over 5 1/3 innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Giants.

Marquis yielded seven hits (including a solo homer by Pablo Sandoval) and two walks while notching three strikeouts. The veteran right-hander will go into the All-Star break with nine wins and a 3.77 ERA through 19 starts. However, with a 72/65 K/BB ratio in 112 1/3 innings, he's a really poor bet to keep it up as the season moves along.
