The Jason Marquis experiment in Minnesota lasted just seven starts. The Twins announced Tuesday that they have designated the veteran Marquis for release or assignment and will call up right-hander Cole DeVries from Triple-A Rochester to take Marquis' spot on the roster. Marquis, a 33-year-old with 106 career wins in 13 seasons, signed a one-year, 3 million contract in the offseason after spending lastyear with Washington and Arizona. But in seven starts with the Twins,Marquis was 2-4 with an 8.47 ERA. The 13-year veteran allowed 14 walks and 52 hits in 34 innings while striking out just 12. His latest start was the final straw, as he gave up eight runs on eight hits in just 1 23 innings on Sunday in Milwaukee. After an off day Monday, the Twins made the move to let Marquis go Tuesday. DeVries, 27, will be making his major league debut when he first takes the mound for the Twins. When he does so, it will be for his hometown team, as he is an Eden Prairie, Minn., native and played baseball at the University of Minnesota. In eight starts this season with Rochester, DeVries was 1-4 with a 4.24 ERA. He struck out 37 batters and walked just seven in 46 23 innings. He will join the Twins in Chicago in time for Tuesday night's game. Follow Tyler Mason on Twitter.
