Jason Marquis set for rehab assignment

Nationals starter Jason Marquis will make his first rehab assignment Tuesday in a start for Class A Potomac. The Nationals will re-evaluate Marquis after the outing, but if all goes well, Marquis will likely make one more rehab start and then re-join the Nationals.

After starting the season 0-3 with a 20.52 ERA, Marquis discovered bone chips in his right elbow. The injury helped explain why Marquis, an All-Star last year who signed a two-year, $15 million free agent contract this offseason, began the year with such disatrous results.

Marquis threw about 60 pitches in a bullpen session yesterday, throwing with less intensity than in his previous bullpen session. Marquis said the game conditions in Potomac will allow him to "get a feel of where I'm at." He continues to enjoy a full range of motion in his elbow and throw without pain.

"Get a feel for where i'm at" let me tell you where you're at Mr.Marquis nowhere, like jack the bear, for 15 million we would love to see you pull a Livan but that hasn't happened and actually Livan's doing it for a lot less so do us all a favor; don't rush back with that 20 plus e.r.a.!

"Get a feel for where I'm at" may translate to an appointment with the Nationals MD on Thursday, but we'll see. I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for him to come back anytime soon.

I wish I could get paid $15 million for a team to report a fake injury and tell me to leave town to "rehab". Life is good ...
