Yanks Claim Jeff Marquez

Via RAB, the Yankees have claimed right-handed pitcher Jeff Marquez off of waivers.  Marquez is an ex-Yankee farm hand who was a part of the package sent Chicago for Nick Swisher.  In Triple A Chralotte (the White Sox affiliate), he pitched to a 3.97 ERA in 47.2 innings in nine starts.  He has been placed on the 40-man roster, and is in uniform for tonight’s game which means Hector Noesi will be sent down to Scranton to actually pitch.  A good reward for throwing six innings of two-run baseball.
