Edinson Volquez takes step back in loss to Dodgers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Pirates starter Edinson Volquez was not at his best Monday night against the Dodgers, dropping to 8-7 on the year. The right-hander was charged with five runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out three over 5 2/3 innings of a 5-2 defeat.

Volquez has allowed five-plus runs just twice over his last six starts. He owns a 3.86 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP over 116 2/3 innings. He will look to get back on track Sunday at Colorado.

Pirates announce post-break rotation plans
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Starting pitcher Francisco Liriano, who returned from the 15-day disabled list Sunday at Cincinnati, will start the first game out of the All-Star break for the Pirates, according to MLB.com.

He will be followed in a three-game series vs. Colorado by Charlie Morton and Jeff Locke. Edinson Volquez will then open a series against the Dodgers on July 21, and he will be followed by Vance Worley before the rotation resets.

Fantasy Analysis | 1405119939
Edinson Volquez back to being a viable mixed-leaguer
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The most notable aspect of Edinson Volquez's complete game gem at the St. Louis Thursday is that it wasn't an isolated event. Well, OK ... he hadn't gone nine innings yet this season, but he has excelled now in five of his last six starts, compiling an 0.90 ERA in his last four.

But before you rush out to pick him up, understand that he's not the strikeout pitcher he used to be, recording 18 strikeouts in 30 innings over those last four starts. That rate is skewed a bit by a one-strikeout performance at Tampa Bay June 23, but it's not so impressive either way. That doesn't invalidate his success, though. Volquez is throwing more strikes than usual, and it's probably not a coincidence he's doing it under the tutelage of pitching coach Ray Searage, who helped Francisco Liriano get his stuff under control last year and A.J. Burnett before that.

Volquez has always had good stuff -- the kind that shouldn't generate hard contact even when he's not missing bats -- so with this recent performance, he has at least established himself as a worthy streaming option in standard mixed leagues.

Edinson Volquez turns in complete game effort Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates starter Edinson Volquez turned in a complete game Thurday against the Cardinals.

Volquez pitched nine innings, allowing one run on six hits. He gave up two walks and struck out five during the start. Volquez threw 114 pitches. The only time Volquez ran into trouble was the third inning. Kolten Wong singled and stole second to open the inning. After a sacrifice bunt moved Wong to third, Matt Carpenter was able to hit a sacrifice fly. 

Volquez nearly found himself in a rough situation the following inning, as he allowed two singles to open the fourth. He was able to work around the jam, and wasn't threatened by the Cardinals the rest of the game. 

The win brings Volquez to 8-6 on the year. His next start will come shortly after the All-Star break.

Edinson Volquez gets over .500 with win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Edinson Volquez won his third start in a row Saturday, in a 3-2 win over the Phillies.

Volquez was effectively wild in his seven strong innings, allowing one run despite walking four batters and allowing four hits. He struck out five batters on 106 pitches for the win, which finally got him over .500 for the first time since April.

After winning his third straight start, Volquez is now 7-6 on the season. He lowered his ERA to 3.88 in 102 innings of work heading into Thursday's start in St. Louis.
