Germán Márquez News
Colorado Rockies right-handed hurler German Marquez (elbow) will require Tommy John surgery for his elbow injury sustained in his last start on April 26 before landing on the injured list, according to Thomas Harding of MLB.com. That will keep the 28-year-old out until the middle of next season at the earliest. Marquez was in the midst of his eighth season in the big leagues and was running a 4.95 ERA, 21.3% strikeout rate, 1.10 WHIP and two wins across four starts. He's a solid arm in real life, but his fantasy value has always been limited because of his home park. Marquez isn't a significant loss for fantasy managers and can be replaced relatively easily by someone on the waiver wire.
Colorado Rockies starting pitcher German Marquez (triceps) could require season-ending surgery. The right-hander told reporters on Friday that he might need to get Tommy John surgery. Marquez exited during Wednesday's start after experiencing pain in his triceps. Normally, players are optimistic in these situations, so to hear Marquez say he might need season-ending surgery isn't a good sign. He's set to undergo another MRI exam and receive a second opinion on Monday. Fantasy managers will likely have to wait until then before they get a better idea on his injury.
Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies right-hander German Marquez (triceps) had an exam in Cleveland after leaving his start Wednesday early against the Guardians. Marquez is dealing with pain in his right triceps, but not his forearm, where his previous injury was. A team doctor is encouraged, but Marquez will have an MRI exam in Denver on Thursday. The 28-year-old just came off the 15-day injured list with right forearm inflammation, so hopefully he can avoid another trip back to the IL after allowing three runs on six hits (one homer) while walking one and striking out four in just 3 2/3 innings in a loss Wednesday. We'll know more on Thursday, but fantasy managers should prepare for the worst.
You know what you get with Marquez. You can stream him on the road with some good results, and you will still have to steer clear of most of his home starts. Last season he fashioned a 5.68 road ERA with a 2.06 mark at home. He had a .371 BABIP at home compared to .234 on the road. There has always been a significant difference in such regards. What was more concerning was Marquez's K% dropping to 21.2. It has fallen in each of the past three seasons, alarmingly down from 28.2% in 2018. There was no major change in his arsenal, as Marquez just threw the slider a bit less and the changeup a little more. There were noticeable variations in his velocity, either. His ERA of 3.75 and xFIP of 3.83 suggested no outliers, either. So Marquez will continue to be what you expect him to be. He will be the No. 1 starter in a weak MLB rotation and viable for usage depending on the venue he is working in, no surprises there. His ADP of 170 may be a bit high for a player you will leave on your bench at times.
