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.
