Marquez will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool this season.
Marquez will be among a handful of players who will train in South Bend while the MLB regulars work out at Wrigley Field. This means that Marquez will likely focus on development this year and seems unlikely to appear in the majors, especially considering the 21-year-old has never appeared above High-A.
Marquez struck out 14 and allowed just one hit across six scoreless innings in a win Thursday for Low-A South Bend.
Marquez posted his first career double-digit strikeout game in a dominant outing. The 20-year-old needed just 71 pitches to clear his six innings, and he threw 53 of those pitches for strikes. Marquez now has a 3.91 ERA this season, and while he's still likely a ways off from the majors, he's someone to keep an eye on as he moves up the organizational ladder given the life in his left arm.
