MLB Trade Rumors: Jason Marquis Involved In Rumors With Detroit Tigers

Jason Marquis has been one of the best pitchers for the Washington Nationals this season, but there is a school of though that suggests the Nationals should sell high on him and look to deal him at the MLB trade deadline. The latest MLB trade rumors suggest the Nationals are indeed doing that. They have discussed trading Marquis to the Detroit Tigers, according to multiple reports.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reported that the Nationals and Tigers were close to a deal on Friday night, but that door may have closed when the Tigers acquired Seattle Mariners starter Doug Fister. However, it appears discussions may be back on again. Bill Ladson of MLB.com reported that the two teams are talking again, and Kilgore reports that Yunesky Maya is on his way to D.C. to be "on call" to be called up in case anything happens with Marquis.

Marquis is 8-5 with a 3.95 ERA for the Nationals this season after having a dreadful year in 2010 in his first year with the club.
