Marquis back in Nats’ rotation
Washington Nationals right-hander Jason Marquis will start on
Sunday, his first outing since having bone chips removed from his
elbow in May.
Marquis signed a $15 million, two-year contract with the
Nationals after being an All-Star with Colorado last year, but his
first season in Washington has been an injury-filled bust. He was
0-3 with a 20.52 ERA in three starts before going on the DL with a
sore elbow in April and had surgery on May 14.
Marquis will make his fourth start of the season Sunday against
the Dodgers, filling left-hander Scott Olsen’s spot in the
rotation. The Nationals, who get phenom Stephen Strasburg back on
Tuesday, haven’t decided when Olsen will pitch next.
