Reds' Jason Marquis escapes rough outing with win No. 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Reds pitcher Jason Marquis was touched up for five earned runs on nine hits, but received enough run support to come away with the win Tuesday night against the Brewers in Milwaukee.

The right-hander surrendered a two-run home run to Martin Maldonado, a run-scoring double to Elian Herrera and a run-scoring single to Ryan Braun all in the third inning. He struck out eight and did not issue a walk in five innings of a 16-10 victory. Of his 73 pitches, 49 were strikes.

Marquis (1-1) has allowed 12 earned runs through 15 innings of work in his first three starts. He will look to climb over .500 at home Saturday against Chicago. He allowed five runs -- four earned -- over four innings pitched against Chicago on April 15.


Brewers' Braun has favorable history against Reds' Marquis


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun finally connected for his first home run of the season Monday against the Reds. Still, despite the home run, Braun has gotten off to a slow start in 2015.

Although, he might be able to keep the momentum of Monday's performance going Tuesday.

On the hill for Cincinnati will be veteran right-hander Jason Marquis. Braun has fared pretty well against Marquis in his career. He is batting .520 (13 for 25) with one home run, five doubles, six RBI, three walks and three strikeouts against Marquis.


Reds P Jason Marquis allows 4 earned runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Reds pitcher Jason Marquis gave up four earned runs in Wednesday night's 5-0 loss to the Cubs. 

Marquis went four innings and allowed seven hits and a home run. He struck out six batters and walked three. Marquis threw 87 pitches and faced 24 batters. Credited with a loss, he's now 0-1 this season with a 6.30 ERA. 

Marquis' next start is projected for April 21 against the Brewers. 


Jason Marquis strikes out seven in Reds no decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Jason Marquis started his first MLB game since July 19, 2013 and earned a no decision in the Reds 5-4 win over the Cardinals. 

Marquis struck out seven in six innings, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks. 

Marquis threw 104 pitches, 61 for strikes. He left with the lead, but a blown save by Manny Parra cost him the win.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Chris Dominguez earns spot on Opening Day roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Reds infielder Chris Dominguez was informed Wednesday that he has made the team's 25-man roster for Opening Day, MLB.com reports.

"Certainly the offense stood out with the power and the extra-base hits," manager Bryan Price said. "His defense in the last six weeks has really greatly improved, particularly in the infield. And he brings energy into everything he does, from the drills outside to a pinch-hit at-bat to coming in the last three innings of a spring training game."

Dominguez hit .316/.322/.596 with three home runs and 14 RBI in 57 spring at-bats. The versatile bench player saw at least 15 appearances each at first base, third base and shortstop as well as in left field and right field with Triple-A Fresno last season.

Dominguez joins outfielder Brennan Boesch and pitchers Jason Marquis and Kevin Gregg as nonroster invitees to earn spots on the Opening Day roster.


Reds pitcher Jason Marquis continues to make case for pitching staff


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Reds pitcher Jason Marquis gave up three earned runs on seven hits in six innings of work Sunday. Marquis, who also added three strikeouts, now has a 3-1 record with a 3.46 ERA in six starts.

"He's really taken advantage of his opportunity," manager Bryan Price said. "I'm pleased with the way he's thrown the ball. When he’s been down in the zone with that sinker and slider and split combination, he's been pretty effective. He had another pretty good start today."

Marquis used 96 pitches to get through his outing.

"After the last outing, I felt pretty good with going deep into games," Marquis said. "I responded really well after the last start. Today coming in, I didn't know what my pitch limit was but I felt good enough to treat it like a regular season game. I was glad I was able to get that far."


Reds' Marquis happy with way he is throwing baseball post-surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Reds starting pitcher Jason Marquis hasn't made a start in the majors since 2013 while working his way back from Tommy John surgery. But the 36-year-old pitcher has had a career resurgence this spring and is on track to open the season in the Reds' rotation.

"The ball is coming out of my hand in a way it hasn't the last five years," Marquis said, per MLB.com. "I've gotten some velocity back, but that's not the big thing. There's just more life on the ball.

"I'm throwing the ball instead of pushing it, guiding it. I think maybe I developed bad habits over those years to protect the elbow so I can pitch. More than anything, that's what I'm happiest with."

Marquis is 2-1 with a 3.15 ERA in five spring starts.


Reds pitcher Jason Marquis gives up four runs in five innings


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Reds pitcher Jason Marquis struggled through his outing Wednesday, issuing two walks but giving up a two-run double against the White Sox. Manager Bryan Price isn't overly concerned with Marquis' performance.

"I didn't anticipate him shutting out the Cactus League," Price said. "He just wasn't as sharp today. His ball was coming back. He was missing his lanes with his sinker a little bit. He still got a bunch of ground-ball outs. When he was in the zone, he was typically pretty good."


Six pitchers vying for last two spots in Reds' rotation


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Six pitchers are competing for the fourth and fifth spots in the Reds rotation, and a week into spring training games, the races are still too close to call. 

The half dozen pitchers have combined to give up one earned run so far this spring. 

Lefthander Tony Cingrani hit 94 MPH with his fastball, showing that last season's shoulder trouble is behind him. 

Righthander Anthony DeSclafani gave up an unearned run in his first start. "I felt like everything was working," he said.

Manager Bryan Price declared Cingrani and DeScalfani the early favorites.RHP Jason Marquis has thrown five hitless innings to work his way into the mix. RHP Raisel Iglesias and LHPs David Holmberg and Paul Maholm have also been effective. 

"At this point in time, we've got a great list," Price said to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. "It would be a very difficult challenge to feel like we've got it right if we had to make our team today because so many of these guys are performing at such a high level."


Three perfect innings for Reds' Jason Marquis


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Jason Marquis made a case for a spot in the Reds' rotation with three perfect innings against the Mariners on Sunday.

Marquis struck out three of the nine batters he faced in his second start of the spring.

"I felt like it was a big improvement over the first game, in terms of pounding the bottom of the strike zone with my sinker," Marquis told C. Trent Rosengrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer. "I would have liked to throw from the stretch, but once again, I'm competing for a spot, so it's nice to put up zeroes and go from there."

 


Reds' Paul Maholm, Jason Marquis competing for rotation spot


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) If pitcher Homer Bailey is not on the Opening Day roster, Reds manager Bryan Price indicated his spot in the rotation could go to Paul Maholm or Jason Marquis, reports Cincinnati.com.

"An example would be if Homer is not able to go. If we're healthy, that means Cueto and Leake and three spots in the rotation – two that we think could potentially be filled by young pitchers in Cingrani and DeSclafani," Price said. "That to me suggests that a veteran guy in that other spot would be fairly important, someone who knows how to manage a game and has pitched in the league and has had success in the league. I think that's why guys like Jason and Paul are here."


Jason Marquis says spot in Reds rotation is his to lose


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) RHP Jason Marquis is sure that he'll earn a spot in the Reds rotation. "I don't focus on it. It's my job to lose," he told MLB.com's Mark Sheldon.

He'll need all of that confidence, because the odds seem to be stacked against him. Marquis is 36 and coming off Tommy John surgery. He last pitched in the Majors in 2013 and is in camp as a non-roster player. 

"I always bet on myself," Marquis said. 

Reds manager Bryan Price has been impressed in the early going. "He's put in a lot of hard work to get back and looks like an in-shape veteran that is here to compete and win a job," he said.

Jason Marquis throwing in simulated games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"He's throwing OK," Amaro said. "He has a ways to go coming off Tommy John, but he's way ahead of schedule. It's usually a year for starters, and he's at 10 months and already off the mound. He seems to be doing well. We're working a little on mechanics, because he got into some habits. His ball has a lot of movement. He's a competitor and throws strikes, so we'll see what happens."
