    Player Outlook

    After two years of more or less equivalent production, we now have a idea who Edinson Volquez is after suffering through different versions of him over the years. And he maintained that level of production despite changing teams, retaining the lessons learned from Pirates pitching guru Ray Searage. Though he still throws hard, Volquez isn't a strikeout-per-inning type anymore, getting most of his outs on ground balls, which keeps the ball in the ballpark. He has also gotten the walks under control. He'll still allow his share of base runners, adding WHIP to the list of categories where he's not much help, but he's steady enough to win games for a good team like the Royals. Volquez is a safe but unexciting choice to round out your pitching staff in the late rounds.
