Marquez (1-4) allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks over six innings Sunday, striking out six and taking a loss against the Cardinals.
Marquez wasn't at his best Sunday with a 1.50 WHIP over six innings, but it was much cleaner than his recent outings. The 26-year-old righty served up a solo shot to Nolan Arenado in the second inning and later watched Arenado score again after he reached base on an error. The Rockies couldn't get anything going at the dish against Adam Wainwright, so Marquez settled for his third consecutive loss. He'll carry a 5.49 ERA into next weekend's projected home start against the Reds.
Marquez (1-3) took the loss during Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Giants after giving up eight runs on six hits with two walks and one strikeout over two-thirds of an inning.
It was a complete disaster for the right-hander, as he allowed the first six batters of the game to reach base while throwing only 17 of 36 pitches for strikes. Marquez had a 3.43 ERA through his first five starts of the season, but the 28:16 K:BB he posted during that stretch spelled trouble, and he's struggled in his past two outings, giving up 12 runs.
Marquez won't start Monday against San Francisco as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather.
The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday. Marquez will presumably start one of those games, though the Rockies have yet to announce which.
Marquez (1-2) was charged with the loss against San Francisco on Wednesday after allowing four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out five over four innings.
All four runs yielded by Marquez came in the second inning, when the Giants pounded out three hits and worked three walks while sending nine batters to the plate. The right-hander gave up only one hit outside of that frame, but the damage was enough to send him to his second loss. This performance marked the first time Marquez has allowed four runs this season, and it tied for his shortest outing of the campaign. Though the veteran has racked up 33 strikeouts over 32.2 innings, he's also issued 19 walks, contributing to an untidy 1.47 WHIP. He'll next take the mound Monday in a rematch versus the Giants, this time at home.
Marquez hurled six innings against Philadelphia on Friday, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out eight. He did not factor in the decision.
Marquez yielded a single run in the second and fourth frames but was mostly in control throughout the contest. He induced an impressive 24 swinging strikes and finished with a season-high eight punchouts. The right-hander has enjoyed a steady beginning to the campaign, racking up three quality starts across five outings and posting a 28:16 K:BB along with a 3.45 ERA over 28.2 innings despite making all but one of his appearances at Coors Field. Marquez's next start is scheduled for Wednesday at San Francisco.
Marquez (1-1) picked up the win in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets as the Rockies cruised to a 7-2 victory, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over seven innings. He struck out six.
The right-hander gave the Colorado bullpen a break, going the distance on an efficient 87 pitches (53 strikes) for his second quality start of the season. Marquez will take a 3.57 ERA and 20:13 K:BB through 22.2 innings into his next outing Friday at home against the Phillies.
Marquez (0-1) allowed three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out seven over 5.2 innings of work in a loss to the Giants on Sunday.
The righty was one out away from recording a quality start but failed to escape the sixth inning. The 26-year-old threw only 60 of his 97 pitches for strikes, and his final earned run came on a homer by Brandon Belt in the sixth. Marquez is still looking to find his groove this season, and his next opportunity to take the rubber will be Saturday against the Mets.
Marquez tossed six innings against Arizona on Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.
Marquez breezed through four scoreless innings before faltering near the end of his outing, allowing a run in the fifth frame and two more in the sixth. Still, it was a positive outing overall for the right-hander given the ballpark and the fact that he was able to notch a quality start. Marquez will toe the mound again Sunday when he faces the Giants in San Francisco.
Marquez allowed one earned run on six hits and six walks while striking out two across four innings Thursday against the Dodgers. He didn't factor into the decision.
Marquez avoided a complete disaster, as he kept the ball in the yard and didn't allow an extra-base hit. However, he racked up 92 pitches and allowed 12 baserunners in his short outing because he couldn't find the strike zone with consistency. Given that he walked more than two batters in only three of his 13 starts in 2020, Marquez should showcase better control moving forward. His next opportunity to take the mound will come Tuesday at home against Arizona.
Manager Bud Black named Marquez the starter for Opening Day against the Dodgers on Thursday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
It's not much of a surprise the 26-year-old will start Opening Day for Colorado, but it's now been confirmed by the team. Marquez started 13 games for the Rockies in 2020 and posted a 3.75 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 73:25 K:BB across 81.2 innings.
Marquez allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings during Monday's spring win over the Rangers. He didn't factor into the decision.
Marquez had a strong spring debut this year but has given up at least three runs in each of his last three outings. The right-hander has had issues with command during his Cactus League starts but still projects as the team's Opening Day starter in 2021. "This spring training is kind of weird with my delivery, so I'm trying to find that point," Marquez told Thomas Harding of MLB.com. "I think I'm getting closer." Marquez should have one more spring tune-up prior to the regular season.
Marquez allowed three runs on six hits and no walks while striking out six over five innings in Wednesday's spring loss to the Giants. He didn't factor into the decision.
Marquez allowed two runs to cross the plate in the top of the first inning Wednesday, but he settled down over the rest of his outing and gave up just one more run in the fourth frame. The right-hander has allowed seven runs (six earned) on 15 hits and four walks while striking out 10 over 11 innings during his first three starts of spring training. Despite his recent struggles, Marquez is a strong candidate to serve as the Opening Day starter for the Rockies.
Marquez allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out three over three innings in Friday's spring loss to the Giants. He didn't factor into the decision.
Marquez was expected to throw four innings against San Francisco, but he struggled to get loose Friday during a somewhat chilly day in Arizona. He struggled to limit production after tossing three scoreless frames in his spring debut. The right-hander had issues with his fastball location during the rough start, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. "I don't mind the weather because the beginning of the season is going to be cold in Denver," Marquez told Harding. "I didn't feel really loose. Whether it was the weather, I don't know. I have to make an adjustment. It didn't work out." Marquez should serve as the Opening Day starter for Colorado and will have just under three weeks to turn things around before the start of the regular season.
Marquez allowed three hits and one walk while striking out one over three scoreless innings in Sunday's spring win over the White Sox. He didn't factor into the decision.
Marquez made his spring debut against Chicago on Sunday and allowed baserunners in each of his three innings, but he didn't encounter many issues during his scoreless outing. The right-hander wants to focus on making his pitches from the stretch going forward this spring, but he had a strong start to Cactus League play Sunday. Assuming he continues to pitch well in spring training, Marquez will likely serve as the Opening Day starter for the Rockies.
Marquez (4-6) earned the win Saturday against Arizona after allowing three runs (none earned) on five hits and one walk while fanning seven across seven innings.
Marquez ended the season on a strong note, allowing two or fewer earned runs in four of five September starts while notching a quality start in each one of those contests. The 25-year-old right-hander ended the campaign with a career-best 3.75 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP in 81.2 innings across 13 starts. He has posted a WHIP under the 1.30 mark in three straight seasons.

Marquez will start Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Marquez had allowed 15 runs over 11 innings in his last two home starts, but he was significantly better Friday. He exited the game with a lead, but Mychal Givens allowed a game-tying solo shot to Jared Walsh in the eighth, denying Marquez the win. The 25-year-old right-hander has a 4.35 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 57 strikeouts across 62 innings this season.
