The White Sox have placed out of options right-hander Jeff Marquez on waivers, tweets ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.
Marquez, 26, came to the White Sox along with Wilson Betemit and Jhonny Nunez in exchange for Nick Swisher and Kanekoa Texeira. two years ago. A supplemental round pick by the Yankees in the 2004 draft, Marquez has seen just one Major League inning.
His minor league numbers have been respectable, though not particularly impressive; he's managed a 4.15 ERA with 6.1 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 over 751 minor league innings.
Hey Kenny, thanks for Ryan Sweeney and Gio Gonzales
Bad trade for us you guys win that one. Please stop rubbing it in 🙂
So Kenny gave Away Ryan Sweeney and Gio Gonzales for a mediocre Nick Swisher season, then traded Swisher for Jeff Marquez, Wilson Betemit, Jhonny Nunez… Way to go kenny!
Definitely one for the loss column.
So Kenny acquired John Danks for Brandon McCarthy then traded Freddy Garcia for Gavin Floyd… Way to go kenny!
swisher had good numbers who knew he was a fake person and a giant lowlife!
Gio might come back to hurt ’em, but the Sox have no use for a light-hitting outfielder like Sweeney. He’d be rotting in their minor league system right now.
