(AP) — The Minnesota Twins have designated right-hander Jason Marquis for release or assignment, ending his stint with the team after just seven starts.

The move was made on Tuesday before the Twins played the White Sox in Chicago. The contract of right-hander Cole DeVries was selected from Triple-A Rochester, and the Minnesota native will take the place of Marquis in the rotation for his major league debut on Thursday.

Marquis was 2-4 with an abysmal 8.47 ERA. The 13-year veteran gave up 52 hits with 14 walks and only 12 strikeouts in 34 innings.

DeVries, who pitched for Eden Prairie High School and the University of Minnesota but went undrafted, went 1-4 with a 4.24 ERA for Rochester, allowing 47 hits in 46 2-3 innings with seven walks and 37 strikeouts.
