MLB Trade Rumors: Jason Marquis 'Close' To Being Dealt To Diamondbacks, According To Report

Washington Nationals pitcher Jason Marquis has been involved in a number of MLB trade rumors recently, but the latest ones sound very serious. Marquis is "close" to being traded, not to the Detroit Tigers as previously rumored, but rather to the Arizona Diamondbacks. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal first reported the news, and fellow FOX Sports scribe Jon Morosi reports that the deal is "close."

The Diamondbacks are 57-49 on the season, four games behind the San Francisco Giants in the NL West and four and a half games behind the Atlanta Braves for the wild card. It's not immediately clear what Marquis would fetch in a trade, but if this deal goes through, he would help the Diamondbacks' rotation. Marquis is 8-5 with a 3.95 ERA on the year for the Nationals, one season after bombing in his first year after signing a new contract.
