The 24-year-old San Felix, Venezuela native has completed three full seasons with the Rockies. He has made just one start in the 2019 season. 

This season, he is 1-0 in one start with a 1.50 ERA in 6 innings. He allowed one run (one earned run), including one home run, on two hits. Márquez struck out seven batters and walked three. 

In his four-year career, he has a 27-10 record with the Rockies with a 4.07 ERA in 69 appearances, including 66 starts. He has allowed 185 runs (174 earned runs), including 52 home runs on 383 hits over 384 2/3 innings. 

He struck out 399 batters and walked 115 batters. 

Márquez was acquired by the Rockies along with Jake McGee on Jan. 28, 2016 in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays. In exchange, the Rays added Corey Dickerson and prospect Kevin Padlo. 

This deal is the second largest signed by a Rockies player since last off-season. The team signed star third baseman Nolan Arenado to an eight-year, $260 million deal.
