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."

Bullpen lets Jason Marquis down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2013) Padres starting pitcher Jason Marquis did not get much help Thursday, as he settled for a no-decision in a 4-2 loss to the Giants.

Marquis held the Giants to two runs in 5 1/3 innings of work, but was lifted after allowing four straight runners to reach base with one out in the sixth inning. Marquis allowed his two runs on seven hits and two walks.

Marquis struck out three batters, while picking up nine of his 16 outs via the groundball. Marquis had to settle for a no-decision as the Padres could not muster any offense after two early runs. He remains 9-4 on the season with a 3.77 ERA, though he has not won in five straight starts heading into the All-Star break.

The Padres have not set their rotation for after the break, so it is not yet known when Marquis will start. 


Bullpen loses one for Jason Marquis


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2013) Padres starting pitcher Jason Marquis pitched well Saturday against the Nationals, but he took a no-decision as his winless streak reached four in a 5-4 loss.

Marquis tossed a quality start, scattering eight hits and three walks over six innings while allowing three runs. He struck out three and allowed one home run, his 17th of the season. Marquis threw 52 of 90 pitches for strikes.

Marquis was actually in line to end his winless streak, as he exited the game with a 4-3 lead. Unfortunately, the Padres' bullpen could not make that stand up. He now has a 3.79 ERA on the season, with a 9-3 record in 18 starts.

Marquis will attempt to win for the first time since June 15 in his next start, scheduled for Thursday against the Giants.

Jason Marquis loses control in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Marquis tossed two scoreless innings to open the game and even had a 2-0 lead entering the third inning, before coming apart. He surrendered a three-run home run in the third and then gave up three more runs on two hits and two walks in the fifth.

Marquis was tagged for six runs in 4 1/3 innings of work, on six hits and five walks. He struck out four and threw just 42 of 83 pitches for strikes in the outing, while dropping to 9-3.

Marquis has a 3.99 ERA on the season, heading into his next start Monday against the Marlins in Miami. 


Jason Marquis can't keep this up


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/21/2013) I get it. Wins matter in Fantasy, and the Padres' Jason Marquis has nine of them, making him the 34th-best pitcher in Head-to-Head formats. But what has happened shouldn't matter nearly as much to Fantasy owners as what will happen, and make no mistake: This will end for Marquis.

It has to. His last start against the Dodgers Thursday was actually a decent one, but walks should have eaten him alive in his previous seven and just about all of his previous 14. He's on pace for 106 this season. That's absurd.

You know how many pitchers issued 100-plus walks last year? Precisely two: Ricky Romero and Edinson Volquez. That's some discouraging company. Looking at the leaders in walks, just about all of them averaged more than 7.5 strikeouts per nine innings. They were bat-missers. It's the only way they could survive so many free passes.

Marquis is anything but. With a fastball that creeps into the high-80s, he's averaging 5.8 strikeouts per nine innings. The baserunners only figure to increase from here, and when they do, he'll go all Barry Zito on Fantasy owners.


Jason Marquis has another quality start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2013) Padres pitcher Jason Marquis had his fourth straight quality start Thursday, holding the Dodgers to two earned runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out five in six innings. He did not factor into the decision and is 9-2 with a 3.59 ERA.

Marquis has not lost a game since April 22, his fourth start of the season. His next start is against the Phillies Tuesday.


The more I rant, the more Jason Marquis wins


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(6/17/2013) I've taken several opportunities recently on Fantasy Baseball Today to express my skepticism over Jason Marquis' performance this season for the Padres. Yet it seems the more I encourage Fantasy owners to disregard the 14-year veteran's top 50 status among starting pitchers, the better he does.

It's exasperating. Marquis doesn't get many Ks, and he's been walking nearly as many batters as he strikes out. He does get plenty of grounders, yet Marquis has managed to cough up 37 home runs over 212 innings going back to last season.

So can Marquis keep collecting wins and maintain an ERA in the mid-3.00s? Sure, as long as he can continue to hold hitters to a batting average on grounders (.132) that is more than 100 points below the major-league average and strand runners at an 81 percent rate that's completely out of whack with his career norms. So, yes, I'm saying there's a chance ...


Jason Marquis stays solid in win over D-Backs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2013) Padres starting pitcher Jason Marquis enjoyed another quality outing as he picked up his ninth win of the season Saturday night against the Diamondbacks.

Marquis (9-2) allowed a two-run home run to Miguel Montero in the opening frame but settled down the rest of the way. The right-hander surrendered three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three in 6 2/3 innings pitched in a 6-4 win.

Marquis is unbeaten in his last 10 starts. He has not suffered a loss since April 22. He has seen his ERA drop from 4.63 to 3.63 over that span. He is scheduled to make his next start Thursday at home against the Dodgers. in the seventh inning and finished 1 for 4 with an RBI in his first game action.

Jason Marquis, Clayton Richard switch places


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2013) The Padres will flip-flop their Saturday and Sunday starters against Arizona, MLB.com reports. Jason Marquis will start Saturday with Clayton Richard starting Sunday's game. 

There is no word as to the reason for the switch. Richard is coming off a no-decision at Colorado in which he allowed four runs over six innings. He's 1-5 on the year with an 8.06 ERA and ugly 1.77 WHIP. 

Marquis, pushed up a day, has won his last seven consecutive decisions and hasn't lost since April 22 against Milwaukee. He's 8-2 on the year with a 3.59 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. 


Jason Marquis still defying the odds


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2013) Padres starting pitcher Jason Marquis' better-than-expected start to the season continued Monday as he earned his eighth win, 7-6 over the Braves. 

Marquis held the Braves to two runs in 7 2/3 innings and was cruising before allowing a solo home run to Jason Heyward in the eighth. He gave up five hits and five walks, matching a season-high. Marquis struck out four while throwing 60 of 108 pitches for strikes.

Marquis (8-2), who has a 3.59 ERA while striking out (50) just seven more batters than he's walked (43), next starts Sunday against the Diamondbacks.
