German Marquez Leaves With Apparent Injury

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

German Marquez was injured while throwing warmup pitches towards the end of the game yesterday. He was helped off the field and could not put any weight on his leg. He left early because of cramps and he is expected to make his next start.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect German Marquez to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 18.63 projected fantasy points puts him at #25 behind Jack Flaherty and ahead of Noah Syndergaard. He has averaged 2.21 fantasy points in his past 60 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.27 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 96%, he is the #26 most highly owned starting pitcher. German Marquez is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #40 fantasy position rank.
