Royals' Edinson Volquez: Quality start versus Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Volquez allowed just one run with three strikeouts and three walks across six strong innings Sunday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.

Volquez was effective Sunday, inducing 13 ground-ball outs, and he was on the hook for the win until he was finally scored upon in the sixth inning, just before he was removed from the game. Volquez reduced his earned runs against for the fourth consecutive outing, tossing his third consecutive quality start, and he lowered his season ERA to 4.56. He is scheduled to take on the same Rangers club on the road Friday.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Picks up quality start in no-decision against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Volquez allowed two runs on four hits and three walks with six strikeouts over seven innings in a no-decision Monday against Cleveland.

Volquez now has three quality starts in four outings since serving up a season-high 12 runs June 24 against Houston. His control makes him too inconsistent to be a top-of-the-line starter -- Monday marked his 10th time walking three-plus batters this season -- but he remains nasty enough to get outs against major league hitters.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Turns in quality start versus Mariners in Saturday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Volquez (8-8) gave up three earned runs on six hits and a walk over six innings in Saturday's 5-3 victory over the Mariners. He struck out three.

The veteran right-hander turned in an efficient performance, getting through his six frames on just 91 pitches, 68 of which he threw for strikes. Volquez stayed ahead of a potent Mariners lineup throughout the afternoon, notching first-pitch strikes on 18 of the 24 hitters he faced. He's now won three of his last four decisions and will look to extend his recent stretch of mostly solid pitching in the second half of the campaign.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Takes eight loss against Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Volquez (7-8) allowed four runs on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts over six innings in a loss Monday to Toronto.

Volquez has now allowed at least four runs in five of his past seven starts and has watched his ERA jump from 3.74 to 4.89 in that period. He was cruising until the seventh, when he gave up three of his four runs, including one he walked in. Control has been a huge problem for Volquez, as he has a brutal 28:17 K:BB over 38 innings in his cold stretch. Unless he can rein in his control, things aren't likely to get much better anytime soon.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Pitches 6.2 shutout innings in no-decision against the Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Volquez didn't allow a run in 6.2 innings but settled for a no-decision in an extra-inning victory against the Cardinals on Wednesday. He also yielded six hits, struck out four and walked one.

This was an ideal bounce back game for Volquez after he allowed 12 runs (11 earned) in just one inning against Houston in his last outing. Three of the six hits Volquez yielded Wednesday were infield singles, so he pretty much kept all the Cardinals hitters in check. He threw 64 of his 104 pitches for strikes and induced 16 swing-and-misses. His control was excellent, as it was also just the second time in six outings that he didn't walk at least two batters. Volquez remains 7-7 but drops his ERA to 4.80 and WHIP to 1.43. His next start will be Monday against the Blue Jays.
