Rockies' German Marquez: Whiffs eight in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez (1-1) earned the win Wednesday at Oakland after allowing one run on four hits and one walk while striking out eight over six innings.

The right-hander surrendered a solo homer to Matt Chapman during the opening frame, but he otherwise kept the A's off the board Wednesday. Marquez is off to a strong start in 2020 with 14 strikeouts and only six hits and two runs allowed through 11.2 innings. He next lines up to take the mound against the Giants early next week.

Rockies' German Marquez: Starting Wednesday in Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez will start Wednesday's game in Oakland on normal rest, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The Rockies will skip the fifth spot in the rotation to allow Marquez to pitch on normal rest. The key takeaway is that fantasy managers can deploy Marquez next week without fear of him pitching at Coors Field.

Rockies' German Marquez: Loses first start of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez (0-1) was tagged with the loss during Friday's 1-0 defeat against the Rangers. He gave up one run on two hits and three walks while fanning six across 5.2 innings.

Marquez came just one out short of posting a quality start and surrendered the only run of the game on a double to Rougned Odor in the bottom of the sixth. Marquez, who posted a 4.76 ERA in 2019, is scheduled to make his next start July 29 on the road against the Athletics.

Rockies' German Marquez: Named Opening Day starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black confirmed Monday that Marquez will start the Rockies' Opening Day game Friday against the Rangers, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Black had strongly hinted earlier in camp that Marquez would get the nod for the season opener in Arlington, but Monday's announcement makes the decision official. The 25-year-old dealt with right arm inflammation in 2019 that shut him down for the final month of the season, but he was fully healthy during spring and summer work. Despite the injury, the right-hander pitched a team-leading 174 innings, and his 6.21 innings per start ranked 15th among qualified starters.

Rockies' German Marquez: In line for Opening Day nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black "strongly hinted" Wednesday that Marquez will start the Rockies' Opening Day game July 24 in Texas versus the Rangers, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Colorado never formally announced an Opening Day starter before MLB went on hiatus in mid-March, but Marquez was always viewed as the odds-on favorite for the nod after leading all Rockies starters in innings (174), strikeout rate (24.3 percent) and xFIP (3.54) in 2019. Marquez's overall numbers were marred by pitching at altitude at Coors Field (6.26 ERA in 73.1 innings at home), but he'll at least benefit from making his first 2020 start on the road in the inaugural game at Globe Life Field, which is expected to play more pitcher-friendly than its predecessor, Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Rockies' German Marquez: Prepared to lead rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez is a lock for the rotation and felt healthy throughout spring training, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Marquez's role was never in doubt, and he will indeed be relied upon to serve as the team's ace. The Rockies have not yet announced a starter for Opening Day and probably will not do so for a while, though Marquez would seem to be the favorite for the honor. He looked sharp in his spring training work, racking up six strikeouts in six innings.

Rockies' German Marquez: Spring debut set for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez is scheduled to start Sunday's Cactus League game against the Angels, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Marquez will be making his debut in the Rockies' ninth game of spring training after the club elected to slow play him due to his 2019 season ending early due to a case of right arm inflammation. By all accounts, the injury didn't impact Marquez's training over the offseason, so he should be on track to handle a normal starter's workload once Opening Day arrives. A hot finish to the 2018 campaign escalated Marquez's draft price last spring, but he'll come at more of a discount in 2020 after seeing his ERA increase by nearly a run (to 4.76) from the year prior before finishing last season on the shelf.

Rockies' German Marquez: Throwing to begin spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez (arm) was spotted throwing off the mound during Sunday's workout session, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Marquez didn't pitch after Aug. 22 last season on account of right arm inflammation, but the Rockies were likely just taking extra precaution with the 24-year-old while the team was firmly out of the mix for playoff contention. The fact that Marquez isn't facing any limitations at the beginning of the spring indicates that he'll be ready to handle a normal throwing progression as he prepares for Opening Day. Assuming he's not sidetracked by any major health issues in 2020, Marquez should be a bankable strikeout-per-inning pitcher, though calling Coors Field his home park will continue to put his ratios at risk.

Rockies' German Marquez: Unlikely to return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said Marquez (arm) has an "outside chance of pitching again" this season, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Marquez is on the injured list with right arm inflammation, and it doesn't sound like the Rockies are expecting him to return this season, though Black didn't completely rule it out. With the team already eliminated from the playoffs, there's no reason to push the right-hander, who owns a 4.76 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 175:35 K:BB across 28 starts (174 innings) this season.

Rockies' German Marquez: Could be shut down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies are deciding whether to shut Marquez (arm) down for the rest of the season, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Marquez was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday due to right arm inflammation, and manager Bud Black later clarified that his ace is essentially dealing with a "tired arm." Black also noted that the Rockies are in the process of determining whether Marquez will pitch again this season, per Saunders.

Rockies' German Marquez: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez was placed on the 10-day injured list with right arm inflammation Monday.

The severity of the issue is not yet clear. The transaction has been made retroactive to Friday, so he'll be eligible to return as soon as next Monday should he prove healthy enough to do so. The Rockies have yet to announce who will take his scheduled start Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Rockies' German Marquez: Surrenders four earned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four across six innings Thursday against the Cardinals. He did not factor into the decision.

Marquez began the game with three shutout innings but had his start derailed by two two-run home runs. Despite three of his past four starts coming on the road, Marquez has now allowed multiple home runs in three of his past four starts. That's continued a season-long issue, as Marquez is now surrendering 1.5 HR/9 -- a mark exacerbated by his home park. For the season, he now owns a 4.76 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with 175 punchouts across 174 innings. He'll look to keep the ball in the yard in his next start, currently scheduled at home Tuesday against Boston.

Rockies' German Marquez: Notches eight strikeouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez (12-5) struck out eight while allowing two runs off five hits and one walk over five innings to earn the win Saturday against the Marlins.

The 24-year-old gave up a leadoff home run to Jon Berti in the first inning but managed to turn things around thereafter. Marquez owns a 171:33 K:BB with a 1.19 WHIP over the season. The right-hander should line up next on the road Thursday against the Cardinals.

Rockies' German Marquez: Strikes out nine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez (11-5) struck out nine while allowing three runs on five hits with two walks across eight innings to earn the victory against the Padres on Sunday.

The 24-year-old allowed a solo homer in the second and third along with another run while recording a double play in the seventh, but his efficiency and the Rockies offense enabled Marquez to get through eight frames. He needed just 93 pitches to record 24 outs, which included nine punchouts, giving Marquez 23 strikeouts in his last 19 innings. The 24-year-old, who will pitch again Friday at home against the Marlins, owns a 4.75 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 163 strikeouts in 163 innings this season.

Rockies' German Marquez: Gives up five earned in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez went five innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on eight hits while striking out four as the Rockies lost 11-6. He did not issue a walk.

Marquez had posted three straight solid outings coming into this contest, but he couldn't keep it rolling against Houston, with most of the damage against him coming on a pair of homers he served up to Yordan Alvarez and Yuli Gurriel. The right-hander has racked up good strikeout numbers, but he's having an inconsistent season overall, as this leaves him with a 4.82 ERA through 155 innings -- a disappointing number after he managed a 3.77 mark in 196 innings last year. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, which is scheduled for Sunday on the road against the Padres.

Rockies' German Marquez: Cleared to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez (cramps) has been cleared to start Tuesday's game against the Astros, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Marquez struck out 10 over six scoreless innings his last time out July 31 against the Dodgers before he was forced to exit prior to the top of the seventh after succumbing to full-body cramping. A few days of treatment were apparently all Marquez needed to overcome the issue, so he's not expected to face any limitations in his return to the mound Tuesday. He'll be matching up with Zack Greinke, who is making his Astros debut.

Rockies' German Marquez: Exits with cramps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez was removed from Wednesday's game against the Dodgers due to "full body cramping," Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Marquez cramped up after throwing a warmup pitch prior to the seventh inning and ultimately had to be helped off the field. The right-hander was locked in prior to suffering the injury, fanning 10 batters while allowing just two hits and no walks across six scoreless innings. It's unclear if Marquez will be forced to miss a start due to the issue.

Rockies' German Marquez: Suffers apparent leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez was removed from Wednesday's game against the Dodgers with an apparent leg injury, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Marquez appeared to twist his ankle while throwing a warmup pitch prior to the seventh inning and had to be helped off the field. The right-hander was dominant prior to suffering the injury, allowing just two hits and no walks while striking out 10 across six scoreless innings.

Rockies' German Marquez: Notches 10th victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez (10-5) secured the win after allowing two runs on five hits while striking out seven over seven innings Friday against the Reds.

Marquez gave up a run in the first and second innings, but he managed to settle down and close out the night with five scoreless frames. He pounded the strike zone throughout his start, firing 69 of 94 pitches for strikes. The 24-year-old right-hander has now turned in back-to-back quality outings, surrendering four runs while fanning 12 over that stretch (14 innings).

Rockies' German Marquez: Beats Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marquez (9-5) allowed two runs on three hits with two walks and five strikeouts across seven innings while earning a victory against the Yankees on Sunday.

This was how owners were hoping Marquez would respond after yielding 11 runs in 2.2 innings during his last start. After such a terrible performance, Marquez couldn't possibly bring his numbers back to where they were after one good start, but this was a step in the right direction. He has a 4.99 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 133 strikeouts in 137 innings this season. Marquez will pitch next in Cincinnati on Friday.
