Twins stretching out relievers in case Baker and Marquis aren't ready to start

There is a growing concern that Scott Baker and Jason Marquis won't be ready to start the regular season on time. Baker is recovering from elbow tendinitis and Marquis is at home with his daughter, who was seriously injured in a bicycle accident. The backup plan is to have relievers ready to start, and Anthony Swarzak, Matt Maloney and Liam Hendriks are all being stretched out just in case their number is called.

Baker out for the season, attention turns to Marquis, Hendriks and Swarzak

The Twins announced Wednesday that starter Scott Baker will miss the entire 2012 season to surgically repair his right elbow. With Baker out, the Twins will have to rely on Jason Marquis and Liam Hendriks to help stabilize the rotation.

Marquis expected back with Twins Friday

Jason Marquis is scheduled to make a second start with Class AA New Britain on Thursday. Barring any setbacks, the right-handed starter will re-join the Twins on Friday. Marquis missed the final two weeks of spring training to be with his daughter, who was injured in a bicycle accident.

Baker could start the season on DL

Scott Baker is scheduled to start the Twins' home opener against Albert Pujols and the Angels on April 9th, but a case of elbow tendinitis may prevent that from happening. Baker is scheduled to throw bullpen sessions Saturday and Monday, but there is a chance he doesn't join the Twins' rotation until the second week of the season.

Marquis likely to start Wednesday

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire says Jason Marquis will likely make his first start Wednesday against the Yankees. Marquis pitched eight strong innings for Class AA New Britain on Thursday as he continues to build up his stamina.

Marquis expected back Tuesday

After missing two weeks to help take care of his daughter, who was injured in a bicycle accident, Jason Marquis is returning to the Twins on Tuesday. Manager Ron Gardenhire says "it's pretty obvious there's not much chance that he'll start with us." The Twins want Marquis to pitch in a game before he re-joins the big league club.

Marquis returns to Twins after 'worst thing' he's been through

It's been a trying two weeks for Twins starter Jason Marquis. He tells the Pioneer Press he spent nearly every moment in a hospital room watching over his 7-year-old daughter, Reese, who was injured in a bicycle accident.

Marquis: 'I'm putting this team in a hole'

With an earned run average of 8.47, Jason Marquis isn't doing the Twins any favors when he pitches. "I'm not going to stop working to get better," Marquis said. "I'm just not doing my job, and I'm putting this team in a hole every time I step on the mound."
