On May 21, Jason Marquis was a member of the Minnesota Twins, then owners of the worst record in baseball at 14-27. Marquis was a culprit; he’d posted an 8.47 ERA and the Twins lost five of his seven starts.
That called for a DFA, naturally, so that’s what the Twins did; oddly, they have been a .500 team since then, 7-7. These two things are not thought to be related.
Marquis signed with the San Diego Padres, who are currently the owners of the worst record in baseball at 19-37.
Thus, this should come as no surprise:

Marquis is more familiar with the National League, and Petco Park is favorable to pitchers. He’s probably a step up from Jeff Suppan in the Padres’ dumpster-diving for pitchers this year.
It’s not been a good baseball year in San Diego. This move might make things marginally better.

The San Diego Padres agreed to terms with Jason Marquis according to Ken Rosenthal, the natural order of things.
