Jason Marquis Pitches On Broken Leg
They say if you watch enough baseball your bound to witness things you have never witnessed before on the diamond. That happened on Sunday watching the New York Mets and Arizona Diamondbacks game when in the fourth inning Arizona’s newly acquired pitcher Jason Marquis plunked Mets Josh Thole with a pitch in the leg. However both players crumpled to the ground simultaneously.
Turns out Marquis suffered a broken right fibula after taking an Angel Pagan line drive off his shin in the previous inning and eventually took an at-bat as he stayed in the game.
“I thought it was just tightness from a bruise,” Marquis said. “The pain was enough I could deal with to stay out there. I just felt something pop and team physician Dr. Michael Lee said it completed the break.”
Marquis will be out for four to six weeks. Click HERE to see the highlight.
