EDINSON VOLQUEZ RUMORS

Iglesias, Reds, go up against a familiar foe in Volquez

The Kansas City Royals are sending a former Cincinnati Reds right-hander to the mound at Great American Ball Park on Tuesday night, though it won't be Johnny Cueto. The Royals are 4-0 in interleague starts by Edinson Volquez, who will pitch as a visitor to Cincinnati for the second time in his career in the opener of a two-game set. Kansas City (71-46) and Cincinnati (51-65) completed...

Edinson Volquez blasts Josh Donaldson over reactions to inside pitches

Tempers flared and plenty of words were exchanged during Sunday’s game between the Royals and Blue Jays. Edinson Volquez and Josh Donaldson were squarely in the middle of it. In the first inning, Volquez hit Donaldson with a pitch, which did not sit well with the Jays third baseman and he let Volquez know about...Read More

Royals Take Series Behind Dominant Volquez

With two outs in the eighth inning, the third straight sellout crowd at Kauffman Stadium came to it’s feet. Why? They were applauding Edinson Volquez and his nearly eight strong innings. The offense, featuring not one, but two, home runs, was able to provide enough run support.   It seems like there have been plenty of nights here lately where the Royals needed their...

Royals' Volquez knows these Pirates -- he was one a year ago

Edinson Volquez played a significant role in getting Pittsburgh to the playoffs last season, but his final start for the Pirates was an uninspiring performance in a wild-card loss. Now with the Kansas City Royals, Volquez will see his former team for the first time since that game Wednesday night. Volquez went 9-1 with a 1.85 ERA in his final 17 regular-season starts for the Pirates...

Edinson Volquez signs with the Royals

Ray Searage helped make Edinson Volquez a rich man: Jon Heyman reported this afternoon that the Royals have signed Volquez to a two-year/$20 million deal. I am of two minds about this deal. My first thought is that I’m happy that the Pirates didn’t give this sort of deal to Volquez. I’m relatively certain that his 2014 was a mirage and while I have a lot of confidence in the...

What did Edinson Volquez do differently in 2014, and what hasn’t changed?

Edinson Volquez had a better year in 2014 than he did in 2013. This seems like an obvious statement to make — Volquez had the worst ERA among qualified pitchers in baseball last year, putting up a 5.71 ERA with the Padres and Dodgers. Given that the Padres and Dodgers both pitch in pitcher’s parks, that number is even more impressive. In 2014, Volquez has been the mainstay...
