Marquis Traded To Diamondbacks

Jason Marquis was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks for INF Zachary Walters. Good thing Marquis is a groundball pitcher. The ball travels very well in Arizona. Marquis' previous success at Coors Field bodes well for his new team, which also resides in the NL West. Marquis will make his 1st start with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday against the Giants.

Batting cleanup, Kevin Youkilis was 2-5 with 1 HR (his 15th), 2 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the White Sox.

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 1-4 with 1 BB (IBB) against the Blue Jays.

Batting 7th, Danny Valencia was 1-4 against the A's.

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 0-4 with 1 run scored against the Astros.

John Grabow pitched 1 inning and gave up 1 run (0 earned) on 1 hit against the Cardinals.

Goes to show you how much Marquis has rebuilt his value. Nobody would have wanted him last year.
