Game 125: Pre-Game Notes

6:20 PM — Jeff Marquez should go around 80 pitches tonight…Brad Suttle is unlikely to play again this season, according to Tony Franklin.

And Donnie Collins shot me a text to let me know that LHP Wilkins Arias is coming back to Trenton.  No word on any sort of corresponding move.

3:35 PM — The wall o’ info is quite bare here in the Mike Ashmore’s Career Memorial Press Box at Waterfront Park.  So I don’t have too much for you other than that, as you likely know by now, Jeff Marquez is making a rehab start tonight.

Marquez pitched for the Thunder in 2007 and 2008, and helped them win consecutive Eastern League titles.  He made his big league debut with the White Sox last season, and also pitched for the Yankees this year.

I’ll get an idea of a possible pitch count and such for him when I can.

Also, the Thunder are giving stuff away.  You should take advantage.  Today, for example, they’re giving out Derek Jeter bobbleheads to the first 2,000 fans.  They look like this:
