The San Diego Padres agreed to a one-year deal with Jason Marquis for the 2013 season. Marquis will make $3 million, the same as he made in 2012 split between the Minnesota Twins (who released Marquis in May) and the Padres.
The 34-year old Marquis was awful during his tenure with the Twins. In seven starts and 34 innings, Marquis walked 14, struck out 12, allowed nine homers, and had an 8.47 ERA. You can't get much worse than that, but the .352 BABIP, 63.8% strand rate, and 27.3% HR/FB indicated that he wasn't necessarily that terrible. Sure enough, after being signed by the Padres, Marquis cut his ERA to 4.04, and struck out 79 while walking 28 in 93 2/3 innings.
However, despite cutting his homer rate with his new club, Marquis still allowed seven homers in 41 2/3 innings at Petco Park, a notoriously good park for pitchers.

Andrew Cashner is a prized possession around San Diego. The reason is simple. He was the return piece in the trade that sent Anthony Rizzo to the Chicago Cubs. Cashner can regularly hit 100 mph on the radar guns, but he suffered a strained lat that landed him on the DL for much of the 2012 season. Despite the injury, he could be the target for many teams this winter, and...
