Found July 22, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Is this the end of the Jason Marquis era in San Diego? That question and more are on the minds of suffering Padres fan everywhere today, as the Friars continue their descent into the bowels of the NL West. For the veteran Marquis, the possibility that he may have thrown his last pitch in 2013 is suddenly a probability. The right-hander began to feel elbow pain during his final starts before the All-Star break, and the pain only worsened during his return to the mound Friday night. After allowing 6 earned runs in just over 5 innings, concern was raised over a major drop in velocity and Marquis later admitted that he didn't feel right. An inevitable trip to the disabled list was finalized on Sunday, as Marquis flew to Cincinnati for further testing on his ailing elbow. While the results of the testing are still pending, Padres manager Bud Black seemed resigned to the fact that Marquis will not be suiting up anytime soon. "Where he is in his career, he knows that this is not a short-term thing," Black said. "He will be out. We don't know exactly how long or the extent of the injury. … I think when the MRI comes back, we can be more specific." With the threat of Tommy John surgery looming in the future for Marquis, the Padres carry on with a hobbled rotation that has seen no less than nine different pitchers start a game for San Diego this season. As of now, the replacement for Marquis's vacant slot is very much up in the air. With his turn set to come this Wednesday in Milwaukee, Black has yet to reveal the identity of the mystery starter and has only gone so far to announce that a fill-in will be named in the next few days. Prior to his injury, Marquis had posted a 4.05 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over 20 starts in 2013. In an injury sidetracked but noteworthy season, Marquis won eight straight decisions from April 28th to June 15th before enduring a string of ineffective appearances leading up to the break. He is set to be diagnosed by Dr. Tim Kremchek in Cincinnati, whom previously performed elbow surgery on Marquis in 2010 to remove bone chips.  Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
