2018 Fantasy Outlook
Fun with small samples: in nearly the same number of innings, Marquez's home ERA was 4.59 compared to 4.19 away from Coors Field, which makes sense. However, a 1.26 home WHIP versus 1.49 away is curious until you see Marquez's road BABIP was a bloated .331. Skills-wise, Marquez fanned more and walked fewer at home, though he predictably surrendered more homers in Coors. The message isn't Marquez is a better pitcher at home, but rather if he can improve his performance on the road, which he should, he can be a useful starter. In his favor is a low walk rate (2.7 BB/9) and a groundball tilt (45.2 percent) to help combat the long ball. Colorado did an excellent job managing his innings, limiting the righty to 29 starts spanning 162 frames. Marquez should eclipse that total in 2018, but not by much as the Rockies look to protect their still just 23-year-old arm. Read Past Outlooks

Hurls baseline quality start
PColorado Rockies
September 15, 2018
Marquez (12-10) allowed three earned runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four across six innings but took the loss Saturday against the Giants.
ANALYSIS
The Giants got to Marquez for two runs in the second inning after the first two batters reached base. After that, Marquez was solid, turning in his 10th consecutive quality start as a result. Though strikeouts were lacking in Saturday's start, Marquez has been dominant of late, racking up 48 strikeouts across his last 34.2 innings.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Marquez was more or less an add-on in the trade that brought Jake McGee to Colorado from Tampa Bay, but after one season in the Rockies' system, it seems like the 21-year-old was actually the true prize. The right-hander started off strong, holding a 2.85 ERA and a 126:33 K:BB ratio with Double-A Hartford, prompting a promotion to Triple-A Albuquerque. He also performed well at that stop, leading the Rockies to send Marquez to the big leagues ahead of schedule. The top prospect had some rough outings with Colorado, but he also displayed the pitching prominence that led the Rockies to accelerate him through their farm system. His pitching style fits his future home park quite well (good control, few home runs allowed), and if he can continue to adjust to big league hitters, Marquez could break camp in the rotation and become one of its staples for years to come.
