      Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez will start Game 1 of ALCS

      Royals right-hander Edinson Volquez will start Game 1 of the ALCS, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Royals pitching coach Dave Eiland broke the news shortly after his team defeated the Rangers in Game 5 of the ALDS, although this announcement is hardly surprising considering Yordano Ventura pitched in Game 4 and Johnny Cueto started the aforementioned Game 5. Volquez hasn't necessarily been dominant in the postseason so far -- he gave up three runs on five hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings in Game 3 of the ALDS -- so he will try to reverse that course against the high-powered Blue Jays' offense.

      Royals SP Edinson Volquez serves up two homers in loss to Indians

      Royals starter Edinson Volquez (13-9) gave up three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over six innings in Friday's loss to Cleveland. Friday was one of Volquez's better outings in recent weeks, but he ran into a very hot counterpart in Carlos Carrasco and gave up two homers for just the third time all season. Though solid for much of the season, Volquez now has a 5.36 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over his last seven starts, both well above his season average. Owners who keep him in the rotation down the stretch do so at their own risk.
