La Russa said that Marquis will not pitch in relief again during the rest of the regular season. That signals he will likely be Saturday's starter, perhaps relieved by Jeff Suppan.
Will play every day the rest of the way, starting but maybe not finishing.
Feels good despite the loss.
Was supposed to relieve Suppan in Milwaukee last weekend.
