On March 1, 2019, the Rockies and Márquez signed a five-year, $43 million contract.
It was April 14, 2019, when Márquez threw the first one-hit complete game in the Rockies franchise’s history in a 4-0 win, surrendering only one hit to Evan Longoria in the eighth.
On August 26, he was placed on the disabled list with right arm inflammation after starting 28 games, winning 12 and posting a 4.76 ERA.
Even though Marquez’s ERA rose by a whole point from the previous year, he largely maintained his consistency.
Three games when he was allowed to remain in the game while struggling poorly, the last of which came on July 15, 2019, when Marquez gave up 11 runs (all earned) in only 2.2 innings before being yanked out of play.
From April through June of that year, Márquez had an overall record of 6-8 and an earned run average of 3.75 in 13 starts. He had the lowest fielding percentage of any big league pitcher (.750) and the most errors (three).
Ka’ai Tom’s leadoff single in the 9th inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates on June 29, 2021, ended Márquez’s no-hitter bid.
He was able to get the win with just one hit. He was the only member of the Rockies’ All-Star squad for the first time. On July 31, against the San Diego Padres, Márquez smashed his second career home run.
