Rockies pitcher Germán Márquez needs Tommy John surgery


DENVER (AP) — Colorado Rockies right-hander Germán Márquez have Tommy John surgery and miss the remainder of the season. The surgery has not been scheduled. Márquez left last Wednesday’s start at Cleveland after feeling a sharp pain in his elbow in the fourth inning on his 58th pitch. He was making his first start since April 10 when he left his outing against St. Louis with right forearm tightness and went on the 15-day injured list the next day. An MRI after the team returned from Cleveland  did not reveal any structural damage but more testing showed he needs surgery.
