SP - COL - IL60
German Marquez announced that he will undergo Tommy John surgery to address an elbow injury, sidelining him for the remainder of the 2023 season.
Marquez sustained the injury last week and it was a worry of the team that he may require Tommy John surgery. As it normally does, the surgery will leave him out for the rest of the year and likely for a bit of the 2024 season.
German Márquez said he’s starting to worry that he’ll need Tommy John surgery.
Marquez is getting another MRI and a second opinion on Monday. The Rockies should provide another update next week.
German Marquez was placed on the 15-day IL due to right elbow inflammation, retroactive to April 27th.
Marquez was removed from his last start early and will now need some extended time off. The MRI revealed no structural damage, but it's unclear how long he will need to recover. Connor Seabold has been called up in a corresponding move.
Colorado Rockies pitcher German Marquez left Wednesday's start early after experiencing sharp triceps pain.
Marquez left Wednesday's contest against the Guardians with two outs in the fourth inning with what he described as sharp pain in his right triceps. He also noted he's worried but initial tests did not show notable damage. It's still a bummer for the right-hander who made his first start since April 10 after a 15-day IL stint due to right forearm inflammation.
German Marquez (forearm) is expected to be activated from the IL to start Wednesday's game vs the Guardians.
Marquez was always expected to return from the IL this week after a successful bullpen over the weekend, and now we know that start will come Wednesday. He has a 4.41 ERA and 7.16 K/9 in 16.1 innings in 2023.
