WSC Birth Years: Jeff Marquez

Card #61 - Jeff Marquez

Born: August 10, 1984

Jeff originally was drafted by the Yankees, but came to the White Sox in a deal that sent Nick Swisher and Kanekoa Texeira to New York.

On July 9, 2010, Marquez made his MLB debut for the White Sox against the Kansas City Royals. He promptly got his first man out, then gave up his first base hit and his first home run, before settling down and retiring the last two batters to finish off an eventual 8-2 victory for the White Sox.

Jeff only pitched one inning before being sent back down, but with his debut out of the way, he can have less butterflies the next time he is called upon by the parent team.
