The San Diego Padres may place right-hander Jason Marquis on the 15-day disabled list with a broken hand, reports Corey Brock of MLB.com:

Right-hander Jason Marquis will miss his next start and is likely headed to the disabled list after he suffered a fractured trapezium bone in his left hand on Tuesday.

Marquis took a line drive to the palm on his glove hand in the second inning against the Pirates. He was able to knock down Pedro Alvarez's ball and complete a throw to first base for the out.

The 34-year-old Marquis remarkably stayed in the game following the comebacker and pitched another three innings, not knowing he had broken his hand. After an initial MRI exam came back negative Wednesday, a follow-up CT scan revealed the fracture of the bone just below the base of the thumb.

Picked up by the Padres in late May following his release by the Minnesota Twins, the veteran righty has pitched fairly well. Through Tuesday, Marquis owns a 4.04 ERA and 7.6 K/9 in fifteen starts for San Diego.

Marquis said they are going to let the swelling in his hand subside a before coming to a decision about the disabled list.
