Marquis was rocked for six runs on seven hits, walking two and striking out four while lasting just three innings in the Reds 10-2 loss to San Francisco on Friday night.

Marquis (3-3, 6.63 ERA) tossed 41 of 64 pitches for strikes, but he wasn't fooling anyone, allowing a three-run homer in the first and a two-run shot in the third inning. He has collected three wins, but has just one start that would be considered quality so the Reds will likely be looking for alternatives if he doesn't show considerable improvement soon.

Marquis was strong in a win Monday, going eight innings while allowing only two runs against the Brewers.

Marquis's dominant start was a nice change after the veteran had allowed 13 total runs in his first three starts of the season. Marquis' season continues on this weekend as the Reds travel to Atlanta to play the Braves.

Marquis earned the win Tuesday against the Brewers despite allowing five earned runs in five innings.

Marquis has yet to make it through more than six innings in any of his first three starts. His terrible outing on Tuesday brings his ERA up to 7.2. The 36-year-old has given up one home run in each of his starts this season but has struck out a combined 21 batters.

Marquis (0-1) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks Wednesday against the Cubs.

His line saving grace was his six strikeouts -- Marquis has fanned 13 in 10 innings to start the year, but he's also allowed 19 baserunners and a pair of homers. He'll see the Brewers on the road next week, and isn't an advisable fantasy start if you can avoid it.

Marquis had his contract selected by the Reds on Sunday.

Marquis was named a member of the Reds' rotation early in spring training, so the move comes as no surprise. However, Homer Bailey (forearm) will rejoin the team part way through the season, at which point the club will need to decide whether to keep Marquis or Raisel Iglesias in the rotation.

Even though it's been presumed that Marquis will win a spot in the Reds rotation, he and the other non-roster invitees on the Reds haven't yet been notified that they've made the team.

Marquis still is likely to win a spot, but the Reds and manager Bryan Price are being a little coy (though others might phrase that as being flexible) about their intentions to begin the season.

Marquis will begin the year in the Reds' starting rotation, the Cincinnati Enquirer's John Fay reports.

Paul Maholm has been told that he is now competing for a spot in the Reds' bullpen, with Raisel Iglesias also getting a spot in the Reds' rotation to start the season. Once Homer Bailey (forearm) comes off the DL, either Marquis or Iglesias will relinquish their spot, and for fantasy purposes, Iglesias is the one with the stuff and the upside to warrant a late-round flier.

Reds manager Bryan Price hinted that Marquis and Paul Maholm will likely open the season in the starting rotation, mlb.com reports. "The thing is, when we have veteran guys like Marquis and Maholm, you're not going to use them for one start," Price said. "If they're going to be on our team, the hope is that they're on our team for an entire season, if not longer. And that's how we have to look at that. You can back-and-forth a young guy. You can start a game or two and then go down to the Minor Leagues or go to the bullpen and help us as a long guy. So Marquis and Maholm are looking more like long-term, start-to-finish options for us."

With Tony Cingrani moved to the bullpen, the Reds have Marquis, Paul Maholm, Raisel Iglesias and Anthony DeSclafani competing for three rotation spots. Of course, one of the guys who makes the cut probably won't last long, as Homer Bailey (knee) hopes to be ready by mid-April.
