    Keeler: Rockies' German Marquez is bringing heat again. But skipper Bud Black won't rush a reconstructed elbow. “It's a totally different pain.”

    “Normal soreness,” the Rockies' ace right-hander told me with a grin Friday at Salt River Fields, a few hours before a Nolan Jones home run to right-center brought enough rain to cancel a Cactus League game with the Texas Rangers after one strange, solitary inning. As benchmarks go, per's tracking data, Marquez averaged 95.7 mph on his four-seamer last spring. Marquez hit the injured list last April 28 with right elbow inflammation, the soreness abnormal enough, and painful enough, to necessitate Tommy John surgery after only four appearances. “We have (righty) Cal Quantrill. We have (Dakota) Hudson,” Marquez said, nodding at the locker stalls to his left.
