Royals' Edinson Volquez: Beats Marlins for 10th win of 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Volquez (10-10) pitched five innings, allowing two unearned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two Marlins in Thursday's win.

For the first time since June 29 -- a span of 10 starts - Volquez made it through an outing without allowing an earned run, lowering his ERA to 4.88, its best mark since late-July. Thursday was a nice touch on an otherwise awful month up to this point. Through five starts in August, the righty owns a 5.81 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in five starts (26.1 innings). Volquez will make one more start before turning the calendar to September when he takes the hill Tuesday against the Yankees.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Gives up four runs in no-decision against White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Volquez allowed four runs on 10 hits and a walk with two strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the White Sox.

Volquez is going through a cold streak, as he has now allowed at least nine hits and four runs in each of his past three starts. He induced just six swinging strikes in 97 pitches, and his inability to miss bats came back to bite him in a three-run fifth in which the White Sox knocked in three straight runs via RBI singles. Volquez's ERA is now up to 5.03 and he has allowed 156 hits in just 141.1 innings.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Blown up by Rays for 10th loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Volquez (8-10) gave up eight runs (seven earned) on 11 hits and three walks in a loss to the Rays on Wednesday.

Things are getting worse, not better for Volquez, whose ERA Is climbing back toward 5.00 instead of dropping into the threes, which is what his fantasy owners would like to see. He was at 3.90 as recently as mid-June; the Dominican righty has seen his ERA climb more than a full point to 4.99 since then. Volquez has always put too many men on base and (not unrelatedly) struck out too few, but that hasn't been been nearly as bad this year as it was in his disastrous 2011 and 2013 campaigns.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Drops ninth game of season Friday versus Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Volquez (8-9) pitched six innings, allowing six runs (five earned), nine hits and two walks while striking out five Rangers in Friday's loss.

Volquez's inconsistent season continued Friday, allowing four-plus runs for the ninth time in his 22 starts this season. After beginning the year with three straight wins, Volquez has put consecutive wins together just once since April 21. His 4.56 ERA and 1.39 WHIP is hardly what owners bought in for this year. The righty will look to rebound in his next start Wednesday against the Rays.

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.
