Rumors: Jason Marquis, Erik Bedard

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports reports the Phillies are deep searching for a starting pitcher. He first alluded to this Saturday during the Phillies-Yankees game, and he’s now fleshing out the report with two specific names: Jason Marquis and Erik Bedard.

Marquis, 30, is 6-3 with a 4.45 ERA this season for Colorado. Spending his entire career in the National League, Marquis has resided in the 4.50 ERA range – definitively league average.

Bedard, 30, is 2-2 with a 2.64 ERA this season for Seattle. He has been much more effective throughout his career, capable of dominance. He would likely require a little more than Marquis, but as his contract expires at the end of the season, wouldn’t command too much.
