According to LaVelle E Neal, 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. 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 :)
