Padres Bring Marquis Back on One-Year Deal

Veteran right hander Jason Marquis will return to San Diego for the 2013 season, tweets Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

Maquis, 34, got off to a rough start in 2012, posting an ERA north of 8 in seven starts with the Minnesota Twins. The Twins released him, and then the Padres picked him up on a minor league deal. When he came back to the bigs, he was more himself, going 6-7 with a 4.04 ERA in 15 starts the rest of the way through the season. A return to pitcher-friendly Petco Park should be good for Marquis and the Padres.
