Newly signed righty hurler Jason Marquis made his Phillies organization debut with the rookie level Gulf Coast League Phils on Saturday.

The following tweet features all the details:

Marquis, who has tallied a 121-114 record and a 4.56 ERA in  368 career big league games in 14 season, was inked by the Phillies earlier this month.

Last season, the 35-year-old went 9-5 with a 4.05 ERA for the Padres.  Marquis was honored as an All-Star in 2009 with Colorado.

The Phillies expect Marquis to continue his warm-up efforts throughout the minors in the coming weeks.

The other name mentioned in the above tweet, third baseman Damek Tomscha, is 5-for-7 with a double, a homer and two RBI in two games since debuting as a pro player.  The 22-year-old was the Phils’ 17th round draft pick out of Auburn this year.  With the Tigers this year in college, Tomscha sported a .313 average with five home runs and 29 RBI in 54 games.

    Must of missed this signing. They need depth here if the time comes to trade Cliff. Petti is done and out and im not sure if Morgan will be ready anytime soon.

    A 4.05 ERA in SD is like a 4.55 ERA in most parks, which is unsurprisingly around his career ERA. That being said, I think I might prefer him on the rotation over Roberto Hernandez.
