2023 Player Outlook
Over the past few years, Marquez's strikeout numbers have trended in the wrong direction as it was down to 7.43 per nine innings last season. The other issue for Marquez is that his home runs per nine innings jumped up to 1.50 last season while his ERA climbed to 4.95 although his xERA was 4.49. At the same time though, this is Colorado we are talking about we can't ignore the right-hander's 6.70 ERA at home last year compared to a 3.34 mark on the road. Draft accordingly, but he also should get credit for being a dependable 30-start-per-season option.
