White Sox LHP Derek Hol­land (5-8, 4.52 ERA) at Rock­ies RHP Ger­man Mar­quez (5-4, 4.41), 6:40 p.m. Fri­day, ROOT; 850 AM

Mar­quez is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing grow­ing pains, like most rook­ies. His stuff — mov­ing fast­ball, ex­cep­tional curve — re­mains im­pres­sive, but his com­mand has fal­tered a bit in re­cent out­ings. He’s com­ing off a com­pet­i­tive start at Ari­zona, but he didn’t fig­ure in Colorado’s 4-3 loss. Mar­quez was tagged for three runs on five hits, and he walked three and struck out six. Hol­land, fac­ing the Rangers, his for­mer team, for the first time, did not fare well in his last start. He gave up gave up five runs, five hits and two walks in five in­nings. The left-han­der might ac­tu­ally be look­ing for­ward to Coors Field, be­cause he’s strug­gled at Guar­an­teed Rate Field, go­ing 1-5 with a 7.81 ERA and al­low­ing 10 homers in his last seven games.
