German Marquez nearly recorded the second no-hitter in Rockies history on Sunday.
The Colorado Rockies have played five series in 2019, all a losing effort thanks to both injuries and a stagnant offense that has yet to awake.
Topics include the lack of production at the plate for the Rockies, the injuries that are holding them back and future transactions that may be possible to solve their woes.
The loss came despite the Rockies allowing only one home run, a rare feat for an opposing team against the red-hot Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Rockies, prior to their first meeting with the Los Angeles Dodgers, were the former. After a two-game flawless spree to begin the 2019 slate, the offense has gone cold. Compounding their issues is a rotation that has lacked consistency outside of their top-two spots.
In 2018, Marquez (14-11) started a career-high 33 games and recorded 230 strikeouts, also a career-high.
The Colorado Rockies offense has been dormant to start the 2019 season. Through five games, the Rockies are 2-3 and have lost three in a row following back-to-back victories to start the year.
While Las Vegas odds have the Rockies winning 84.5 games in the upcoming season, while FanGraphs has them at 81, a handful of the staff at Mile High Sports took their own stab at the upcoming season's win total.
Surrounded by Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story and Daniel Murphy, his production driving in runs is sure to top his previous career-high mark of 48 if he can maintain his health.
