Twins Free Agency Rumors: Jason Marquis Close To Signing With Minnesota

Jason Marquis, a steady veteran right-handed pitcher that has spent his entire career in the National League, is reportedly close to a deal with the Minnesota Twins. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting that Marquis, who played for Arizona and Washington last season, is close to joining the Twins:

Marquis' best season was 2004 with St. Louis, when he went 15-7, 3.71. He never has pitched in the American League. His fastball, according to fangraphs.com, averaged 89.3 miles per hour last season, but he's avoided giving up a lot of homers in recent seasons.

Marquis has a career 104-98 record and was 8-6 last season combined with Washington and Arizona. Marquis has also pitched for Atlanta, Colorado, and the Chicago Cubs. He has an 0-2 record in the postseason, but has helped his team reach the playoffs in five different years. The 12 year veteran has 267 career Major League starts in his career.
