From FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal comes word that the Padres have signed right-hander Jason Marquis, who was released by the Twins earlier this week after posting an 8.47 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in seven starts.
Marquis will report to the Padres’ Triple-A affiliate in Tucson and attempt to prove he’s got something left.
The 33-year-old right-hander currently owns a 4.63 career ERA, 5.2 career K/9 and 1.44 career WHIP.
San Diego’s Petco Park is a pitcher’s haven, but so is Minnesota’s Target Field. And he allowed a whopping 33 hits in 21 1/3 innings there.
UPDATE, 8:07 PM: MLB.com’s Corey Brock confirms that the Padres have signed Marquis to a minor league contract. He has been assigned to Double-A San Antonio, not Triple-A Tucson.
