Colorado Rockies: The post- All-Star break pitching rotation
By Luke Mullins
3. German Marquez
Marquez struggled early-on but has the stuff to be an elite pitcher at the big-league level. We saw it last season when he was, at times, the Rockies best pitcher and we’ve seen it again in his last three starts over which he has a 1.80 ERA.
The best of those starts came in a key match-up against the Dodgers when he gave up one run on just two hits over eight innings.
4. Antonio Senzatela/Jon Gray
Senzatela stepped into Gray’s spot in the rotation after Gray was demoted to AAA. Senzatela’s first start was great, surrendering no runs on just 3 hits over 7 innings. His second start was not as bad as it looked on paper the morning after.
Senzatela gave up 3 runs in the first but retired 13 of 14 batters faced before a walk and a single set up Ryon Healy for a 3-run homer in the 6th. His start Friday night could determine whether or not he stays in the rotation. Gray, has pitched decently at AAA Albuquerque and could see a return to the Rockies in the second half.
