Padres Sign RHP Jason Marquis

Jason Marquis
The San Diego Padres have signed RHP Jason Marquis, he received a one-year deal worth approximately three million dollars. There are no incentives or options. Marquis pitched well for us last season, chewing up innings after signing a minor league contract with the Padres in late May. General Manager Josh Byrnes said he wanted to add two starters, and there have been rumors that we are in on Jeremy Hellickson, Dan Haren, and Ubaldo Jimenez among others. There are three different ways to interpret this free agent signing:

1) The Padres have very limited funds and this is one of their two starters they are signing.
2) The Padres made a cheap signing and are saving money for another splash.
3) This is a depth signing and not one of the starters, implying that we have a lot more to spend.

Other Rumors:

  • There have been lots of rumors saying other teams are interested in 3B Chase Headley, while Josh Byrnes has said on countless occasions he won't be dealing Headley.
