Arkansas (35-14, 11-13 in the Southeastern Conference) originally was scheduled to meet Texas-Pan American next Tuesday and Wednesday night.
Sunday's game at No. 13 Alabama has been changed again from its original start time of 2 p.m. to 11 a.m. to accommodate regional television.
Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn said Marquardt, who had surgery on his right knee May 2, will make the trip to SEC Division-leading Alabama (34-16, 14-10) for the critical conference series which begins Friday night.
"I saw him jogging in the bleachers (Tuesday) and he'll be on our roster and we'll take him to Alabama," Van Horn said. "As far as playing, he won't be playing in the field. I don't see that at all. Maybe get a chance to pinch-hit. We'll see, we're still a couple of days away from game day.
"He'll be there, though. I think more toward our last series against Ole Miss (May 20-22 in Baum Stadium) we'll see him. Maybe, I just don't know."
Marquardt is hitting .379 with 10 doubles, 2 home runs and 23 RBIs. He's played in 37 games and started 27. He injured his knee in the LSU series April 23.
Van Horn also said Razorbacks left fielder Jake Dugger (.250, 41 starts, 8 HRs, 41 RBIs) -- he pinch-hit against then-No. 6 Florida last weekend-- probably would return to the lineup this weekend. Dugger, too, injured his right knee, last week in practice.
Van Horn said last week the Wednesday night game against Texas-Pan Am probably would be cancelled because of overscheduling. He was not surprised the Tuesday game also was cancelled.
"Reason being," Van Horn said. "They don't want to come up here for just one game. That's a long way. Yeah, I've called some other teams, but really no one wants to come here."
