Reds pitcher Jason Marquis struggles in start on Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Reds pitcher Jason Marquis allowed four runs, two earned, on 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings of work in Cincinnati's 5-4 loss to the Rockies on Monday, but did not factor into a decision.

Marquis had issues in the first inning when he surrendered an RBI single to Nolan Arenado with a man on second. Then in the second, Marquis gave up another RBI single with runners on second and third to DJ LeMahieu, plating two runs. Marquis then allowed a solo home run to Nolan Arenado in the fourth. 

Marquis, who remains 3-4, moved his ERA to 6.46 in 47 1/3 innings of work. He will look to bounce back Sunday against the Nationals.


Reds SP Jason Marquis in jeopardy of losing rotation spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Reds starting pitcher Jason Marquis' spot in the rotation appears to be on shaky ground following a third straight loss Wednesday at Kansas City, which dropped him to 3-4 with a 6.91 ERA through eight starts.

"Those are tough questions when you are struggling, when you've lost five in a row and during those five games you've had some really poor pitching performances from our starting pitchers," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "The question is a reasonable question. It isn't insensitive or ill-timed.

"What Jason provides us is important. But it is important also that he performs the way I know he can and the way he did early in the year. We always have to try and put the best team on the field. When he's throwing the way he's capable of throwing, he can be a part of a real good starting rotation."


Reds P Jason Marquis struggles again in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Reds pitcher Jason Marquis gave up four earned runs during Wednesday evening's 7-1 loss to the Royals. 

Marquis had yet another poor outing as he was only only able to go 3 2/3 innings. This marked the second appearance in a row that he didn't reach the fifth inning. Marquis has now given up 15 earned runs in his past three games. 

Marquis has a 6.91 ERA this season. 

His next start is projected for May 26 against the Rockies. 


Reds P Jason Marquis allows six runs in Friday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Reds pitcher Jason Marquis surrendered six runs on seven hits over three innings during Friday's 10-2 loss to the Giants.

"I'm just not very good right now," Marquis said, per MLB.com. "I'm not able to make consistent pitches like I want. Obviously, they're squaring balls up a little better than I hoped. Whether it's bad location or not, as much life on the ball I would like, I've got to figure out something here quick because it's not fun."

His troubles began in the first inning when he gave up a three-run home run to Brandon Belt. He ran into more trouble when Buster Posey hit a two-run home run in the third. Marquis allowed another run on a single by Casey McGehee.

Marquis struck out four batters and walked two during the outing. Marquis has allowed 21 runs over his last three starts and his ERA now stands at 6.63. His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday at Kansas City.


Reds RHP Jason Marquis pitches poorly in loss to White Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) The encouraging spring training that landed veteran starter Jason Marquis a spot in the Reds rotation certainly seems like a distant memory now.

He pushed that memory farther back Saturday night against the host White Sox. Marquis gave up five runs on 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings with one walk and no strikeouts.

Marquis spent far more time than he would have liked watching balls fly over the fence. He allowed a home run to Alexei Ramirez in the second and blasts by Avisail Garcia and Gordon Beckham in the sixth. He was out of the game three batters later.

The right-hander had won his previous three starts, but performed poorly in two of them. He has now surrendered 19 runs in his 29 innings pitched. He will seek to reverse his fortunes against San Francisco next weekend.


Friday's White Sox-Reds game postponed to Saturday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Friday's interleague matchup between the White Sox and Reds has been postponed till Saturday, reports CSN Chicago.

Rain caused the game to be postponed and the two teams will play a doubleheader Saturday. Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto will face White Sox pitcher Jason Marquis in Game 1, while White Sox pitcher Hector Noesi is going against Reds pitcher Carlos Rodon in Game 2.


Reds' Jason Marquis wins third game of year


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Reds starter Jason Marquis moved to 3-1 on the year with a win over Atlanta on Saturday. 

Marquis allowed three runs on five hits in 6 and 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out four. Marquis threw 90 pitches, 47 strikes, and lowered his ERA to 5.22. His next start is scheduled for Friday, at the White Sox.


Reds pitcher Jason Marquis tosses eight innings in win Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Reds pitcher Jason Marquis allowed two runs on seven hits in eight innings of work in Cincinnati's 9-6 win over the Brewers Monday. 

Marquis allowed Martin Maldonado to reach on a walk in the third. He was then sacrificed to second base before Jean Segura singled him home.

"We didn't do anything off Marquis. He threw the ball well," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "We didn't square up many balls against him. We didn't start off well against him in his last outing, either. He kept the ball down. He had good movement. He threw a nice sinker. He knows how to change speeds."

Then in the sixth, Marquis allowed a double to Gerardo Parra, who was then singled home by Adam Lind for Milwaukee's second run.

"My stuff was effectively wild today," Marquis said. "It helped to get some runs on the board early."

Marquis, now 2-1, lowered his ERA to 5.48 on the year and picked up three strikeouts in the appearance. He will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Braves.

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. 

Marquis retired 12 straight at one point. Marquis is expected to make his next start on Wednesday, against the Cubs and Travis Wood.

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.
