Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez is 9-1 with a 1.85 ERA in his last 17 starts going into his NL Wild Card game start on Wednesday.
Insight: Volquez has also allowed just four earned runs in his last 34 2/3 innings at home. In his last two starts, each lasting seven innings, he did not yield a single run. Experts can second guess the Pirates rotation strategy this week all they want, but Pittsburgh has a hot pitcher on the mound, in front of an electric crowd at home, and with the support of one of the hottest offenses in September.
 
9/25/2014 10:38:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez pitches gem against the Braves.
Insight: He allowed no runs on four hits, over seven innings of work, and also struck out 10. He finishes the year at 13-7 with an impressive 3.04 ERA. He will be a highly sought after free agent this offseason.
 
9/20/2014 10:35:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez continued his hot pitching of late, Saturday versus Milwaukee.
Insight: He hit Ryan Braun, which casued warnings to be issued, eventually resulting in the ejection of Matt Garza. However, Volquez did not allow a run on three hits and seven innings. He did not factor into the decision, and owns a healthy 3.15 ERA.
 
Hot8/29/2014 9:41:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez pitched seven and 2/3 innings on Friday, allowing one run on three hits, striking out six and walking three. Volquez earned a no-decision.
Insight: Volquez pitched six hitless innings to start Friday. He did not get the win because Pittsburgh scored its two runs in the bottom of the eighth, but the 31-year-old continues to pitch well. Volquez is 7-1 with a 2.18 ERA in his last 12 starts.
 
Hot8/12/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez has gone 6-1 with a 2.30 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP over his last nine starts.
Insight: Volquez' ERA climbed to 4.67 after he allowed eight runs in 2 1/3 innings on June 18, but it dropped to 3.67, its lowest point since April 27, Tuesday when he allowed two runs on five hits in six innings against the Tigers.
 
6/29/2014 4:36:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez threw six shutout innings Sunday against the Mets to even his record at 6-6.
Insight: Volquez (4.07 ERA, 1.24 WHIP) has allowed one run on 13 hits in his last 14 innings and three earned runs or less in seven of his last eight starts, but he gave up eight runs in 2 1/3 three starts ago. The right-hander has cut his BB/9 down from 4.07 last year to 2.94 in 2014, but it has come at the expense of his K/9. He's no more than an NL-only arm.
 
Cold5/10/2014 10:39:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez gave up three runs on four hits with four walks in 4 2/3 innings Saturday against St. Louis.
Insight: Volquez is unraveling after a strong start. He had a 1.93 ERA and a 1.61 BB/9 in his first 28 innings this year, but he's posted an 8.81 ERA and a 4.70 BB/9 his last 15 1/3.
 
Cold5/4/2014 6:37:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez allowed six earned runs for the second straight start on Sunday against Toronto.
Insight: Volquez gave up four homers in 10 2/3 innings in that span and his ERA is now 4.19. The 30-year-old's BB/9 is just 2.09, but he's struck out fewer than five batters per nine innings.
 
4/27/2014 5:56:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez gave up six earned runs on seven hits (two homers) in 5 2/3 innings Sunday at St. Louis.
Insight: Volquez (1-2, 3.21 ERA) only walked one and still has just six BBs all year (1.59 BB/9), but he also only has 18 strikeouts (4.81 K/9) and now has a 3.80 FIP.
 
Hot4/22/2014 10:06:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Edinson Volquez tossed seven innings and allowed two runs on five hits Tuesday against the Reds.
Insight: After walking 4.07 batters per nine innings last year, Volquez has issued just five total walks in 28 innings this season and owns a 1.93 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP. He has a 4.0 percent HR/FB and allowed one homer all year.
 
4/3/2014 8:53:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh will hand the ball to right-hander Edinson Volquez Sunday versus St. Louis. SOURCE: Dan Zangrilli, 93.7 The Fan
Insight: Volquez tossed two innings of shutout ball Thursday in his season debut. His 5.71 ERA in 2013 was among the worst in the major leagues.
 
3/16/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Edinson Volquez is expected to land a spot in the Pirates rotation, according to Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Insight: Volquez has a 11 ERA and a 2.11 WHIP in nine innings this spring after going 9-12 with a 5.71 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP last year. There's no reason to draft him in any leagues. Jeff Locke will be bumped to the bullpen or Triple-A.
 
12/11/2013 8:14:00 PM
Description: The Pirates inked righthander Edinson Volquez to a one-year deal on Wednesday. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, Fox Sports
Insight: He'll earn $5 million next season. Volquez hasn't been fantasy relevant since 2007 when he won 17 games for Cincinnati. In 33 appearances last season, Volquez went 9-12 with a 5.71 ERA. He figures to be a back of the rotation starter/long relief option for Pittsburgh in 2014.
 
10/11/2013 2:13:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles starter Edinson Volquez has been added to the Dodgers NLCS roster.
Insight: Volquez is probably just insurance for Hyun-Jin Ryu who struggled in Game 3 against Atlanta and Ricky Nolasco who gave up 17 earned runs over his last three starts.
 
9/2/2013 10:09:00 PM
Description: Edinson Volquez will start for the Dodgers Wednesday against the Rockies at Coors Field.
Insight: The team will push Hyun-Jin Ryu back to Friday to give him extra rest. Volquez has a career 8.39 ERA and a 2.13 WHIP in 34 1/3 innings at Coors Field (14.92 ERA there this season) and should be avoided in all leagues.
 
8/28/2013 10:31:00 PM
Description: Former Reds and Padres starter Edinson Volquez has agreed to join the Dodgers. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, Fox Sports
Insight: There were reports earlier in the day that L.A. had been zeroing in on Volquez so this doesn't come as much of a surprise. There's a chance Volquez could take over for Chris Capuano at the end of the rotation but his impact from a fantasy perspective should still be minimal.
 
8/28/2013 9:13:00 PM
Description: Free agent starting pitcher Edinson Volquez is on the Dodgers' radar. SOURCE: Buster Olney, ESPN
Insight: Volquez just pitched himself out of a job with the Padres and now the Dodgers want him? It's not the craziest thing we've ever heard, but it's right up there. Volquez (9-10, 6.01 ERA) would give the Dodgers some depth but he wouldn't be much of an upgrade over current fifth starter Chris Capuano (4-7, 4.74).
 
Cold8/24/2013 8:03:00 PM
Description: The Padres have designated righthander Edinson Volquez for assignment.
Insight: Volquez failed to make it out of the first inning Friday against the Cubs, allowing five hits and six runs (five earned) before his departure. He won't have trouble finding a new team but how can fantasy owners trust someone with an ERA over six?
 
8/13/2013 9:40:00 PM
Description: Padres manager Bud Black said that Edinson Volquez will remain in the rotation for the time being even though he possesses the highest ERA in baseball among qualified starters. SOURCE: MLB.com
Insight: Volquez is 8-10 with a 5.80 ERA in 136 2/3 innings this season. He has a 4.13 FIP and his BB/9 is below 5.00 for the first time since 2008, but the right-hander has been subpar with men on base. Volquez' strand rate is just 64 percent because he has allowed a 24.8 percent line-drive rate and 32 extra-base hits with runners on.
 
6/12/2013 8:13:00 PM
Description: Padres righthander Edinson Volquez evened his record to 5-5 with a win over the Braves on Wednesday afternoon.
Insight: Volquez (5.87 ERA in 14 starts) has been a mess most of this season but Wednesday he had the goods. In seven innings of work, he surrendered just one run on six hits, walking three with nine strikeouts. His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Giants.
