Nats Place Marquis On 15-Day DL

Marquis and McCatty

Jason Marquis was placed on the 15-Day Disabled List today due to what the Nationals are calling “loose bodies in his right elbow.” Let’s hope some rest does him the man a little good, considering all of his previous outings for the Nats this season are … how you say, umm … not so good?

It couldn’t have been easy for Marquis to watch his former team (the Rockies) playing against his new squad tonight at Nationals Park, especially since his pitching hasn’t been up to par when compared to what his contact says it should.

Here’s to hopin’ the DL placement’s proves to be beneficial and not just a waste of the Nationals off-season spending allowance.
