Jason Marquis (wrist) threw a bullpen session Thursday.
Marquis hasn't pitched since August 21 due to a broken bone in his left (non-throwing) hand. It's highly unlikely he'll return before the end of the season, but he's trying to keep his arm in shape. "He loves baseball," said Padres manager Bud Black. "He loves to throw. When he broke his hand, he wanted to keep throwing. He wanted his body clock to know he was pitching in September. I admire that." Marquis has a 4.04 ERA in 15 starts since joining the Padres and is due to hit free agency this offseason.
