The Minnesota Twins did indeed reach a deal with veteran right-handed pitcher Jason Marquis, according to Jon Morosi on Twitter. After new broke that the two were close to getting a deal done, it looks like the two agreed to terms early Thursday on a one-year, $3 million deal. He's 33 years-old and a 12-year man in the MLB. Last season, he went 8-5 with the Washington Nationals a season ago before being traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks, where he hit a definite slump.
With Arizona, he went 0-1 with a 9.53 earned-run average in three starts, and then missed nearly two months at the end of the season with a broken right fibula after being hit with a line drive. His best season was back in 2004, when he went 15-7 with a 3.71 ERA, and he's never pitched in the American League.
