Mets Not Interested In Jason Marquis

The Mets have no interest in right-hander Jason Marquis, reports Mike Puma of The New York Post (on Twitter). He was designated for assignment by the Twins earlier today.

Marquis, 33, is a native New Yorker and has made no secret of his desire to pitch near home through the years. He posted an 8.47 ERA with more walks (14) than strikeouts (12) in seven starts and 34 innings for the Twins this season, but just last year he pitched to a 4.43 ERA in 132 innings for the Nationals and Diamondbacks.

Mike Pelfrey's injury has forced the likes of Miguel Batista and Jeremy Hefner into the Mets' rotation, so a fit between the club and Marquis seemed obvious.

    Royals, M’s or Friars? Cyclones?

  3. No one should be interested in Marquis. Unless, of course, they need some starters for their Double-A or Triple-A teams.

    I think with a good defensive team Marquis could have an ERA around 5.70.

  5. Such an obvious sign for the Mets… Could be a nice pick up on the cheap for a local guy. Otherwise go pitch for the Long Island Ducks for a few weeks.

  6. What would he add to the Mets? I don’t see any obvious reason to obtain him.

  7. The Mets can’t acquire Marquis. He stinks.

    Wait until you see Hefner getr lit up and Young gets injured again. Marquis will look like a God Send. Wheeler btw looks ready.
