According to LaVelle E Neal (https://twitter.com/#!/LaVelleNeal/status/187562614828699648), the Twins have optioned Jason Marquis to Rochester, where he'll likely make a few starts before rejoining the team.

It's been a tough spring for him as his 7-year-old daughter experienced a horrifying bike injury that put her in a coma (http://twinsdaily.com/showthread.php?695-Great-story-from-Rosenthal-about-Marquis-daughters-accident). Fortunately, there is good news from the family.

Rosenthal said New Britain so he can commute to see his daughter.... I guess we'll find out who is correct :)

LaValle has since retracted his statement saying Twins officials have said nothing is finalized.

I guess it is New Britain then since Marquis said so to Rosenthal... He has to know where he is going :)
