Short hops

• Center fielder Cameron Maybin didn't start for the fourth consecutive game on Wednesday, though if the Padres got in a pinch, he probably could hit. Chances are good the team will allow Maybin to rest his sprained right wrist two more days -- the team is off on Thursday -- before the Padres begin a three-game series at Petco Park on Friday against the D-backs.

"It's been three days," Maybin said before Wednesday's game. "But it feels like two weeks."

• Pitcher Jason Marquis, who signed a Minor League contract with the team on Tuesday, will make his system debut on Thursday pitching for Double-A San Antonio. Marquis, 33, was released by the Twins on Monday after going 2-4 with a 8.47 ERA in seven starts.
