Padres Seriously Considering Jason Marquis

The Padres have four starting pitchers on the disabled list at the moment, which is why they are "giving serious thought" to signing Jason Marquis according to Joe Christensen of The Star Tribune. The right-hander was both designated for assignment and released by the Twins within the last week.

Marquis, 33, posted an 8.47 ERA with more walks (14) than strikeouts (12) in seven starts and 34 innings for Minnesota this season, but just last year he pitched to a 4.43 ERA in 132 innings for the Nationals and Diamondbacks. Any team that signs Marquis will only be responsible for the pro-rated portion of the $480K league minimum with the Twins picking up the rest of his $3MM salary.

Cory Luebke (Tommy John surgery) and Dustin Moseley (shoulder surgery) are both out for the season while Joe Wieland and Tim Stauffer are expected back from their elbow issues sometime this summer.
