JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — A comebacker off the bat of New York Mets CF Angel Pagan on Sunday (8/14/2011) may have ended the regular season of Arizona Diamondbacks P Jason Marquis, by fracturing his right fibula.

Marquis, recently acquired by the N.L. West-leading Diamondbacks from the Washington Nationals, continued pitching after the 3rd-inning incident but left during the 4th inning after feeling the bone pop (see video). Arizona went on to win the game 5-3.

Marquis said he hopes to be back in time for post-season play. The fracture is his second major injury in two years. He missed a chunk of the 2010 season after having surgery on bone chips in his elbow.

The 32-year-old was 0-1 in Arizona after going 8-5 for the Nationals.
