The Twins, seeking to boost their starting rotation, have signed free-agent right-hander Jason Marquis.
Marquis agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract with the Twins on Thursday.
Marquis, 33, went 8-5 with a 3.95 ERA for the Nationals last season before getting traded to the Diamondbacks on July 30 — and suffering a season-ending fractured right tibia in his third start after the deal.
The Twins will be Marquis’ seventh team and his first in the AL. He is 104-98 in his career with a 4.55 ERA.
