Edinson Volquez was crushed in a losing effort against the Nationals on Tuesday, surrendering six runs on five hits over 4 2/3 innings.

The right-hander struggled badly with his command, issuing five walks while striking out four. Had had allowed just two runs heading into the fifth inning, but the wheels fell off when the Nats rallied for four runs all with two outs in the inning. Volquez now sits at 3-8 on the season with a 4.19 ERA and 1.40 ERA. He'll look to get back on track when he does battle against the Cubs on Sunday.

Edinson Volquez yielded five runs -- four earned -- over four innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Athletics.

Volquez's last turn brought seven shutout innings and he threw a no-hitter the turn before that, but it was back to mediocrity for the 33-year-old right-hander on Wednesday. He walked four and surrendered four hits, including a three-run homer to Ryon Healy in the top of the second inning. Miami did pull off the victory, however, with an 11-run offensive outburst. Volquez will carry a 3.72 ERA and 1.35 WHIP into his next start at home against the first-place Nationals.

Edinson Volquez failed to throw back-to-back no-hitters, settling for seven shutout innings in the Marlins' 7-1 win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Volquez got the suspense out of the way early, allowing a single to the second batter he faced. He didn't make it a habit, though, yielding just three hits all night while walking two and striking out eight. After going winless through his first nine starts, the right-hander is now 3-0 in his last three turns, allowing one run over those 22 innings. He's now 3-7 with a 3.41 ERA ahead of an interleague matchup with the Athletics on Wednesday.

Edinson Volquez threw a no-hitter in the Marlins' 3-0 defeat of the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Volquez was pitching with a full heart on what would have been Yordano Ventura's 26th birthday. He posted a tribute to his deceased friend on Instagram on Saturday morning and then twirled nine inspired innings against the visiting Diamondbacks, striking out 10 batters while issuing two walks on 98 total pitches. It was the first career no-hitter for Volquez and the sixth in Marlins history. The veteran right-hander is now 2-7 on the season with a 3.79 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 57/33 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings.
Jun 3 - 6:50 PM

Edinson Volquez finally notched his first win after holding the Phillies to one run and three hits over six innings on Monday.

Volquez had been 0-7 with a 4.82 ERA. The four runs the Marlins scored tonight was their second-highest total in one of his starts this season. They've scored one or two runs in seven of his 10 outings.
May 29 - 11:58 PM

Edinson Volquez surrendered three runs on seven hits over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Volquez pitched fine in this one, but a lights-out Sonny Gray prevented him from picking up a win. The veteran right-hander struck out two and walked two on the afternoon, with two of the three runs on his line coming home on a two-run home run by Khris Davis in the first inning. Volquez will bring a 4.82 ERA and 1.67 WHIP into a home showdown with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.
May 24 - 6:17 PM

Edinson Volquez coughed up five runs on eight hits over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Volquez surrendered runs in each of the first three innings, the loudest of those touching home on a titanic two-run home run by Yasiel Puig in the second inning. He struck out four and walked three while watching his record fall to 0-6. The veteran right-hander will try for better results when he carries his 4.78 ERA and 1.70 WHIP into a road date with the A's next time he toes the rubber.
May 19 - 1:40 AM

Edinson Volquez held the Braves to two runs over six innings in a loss Saturday.

Volquez allowed just four hits and two walks over his six innings, but Braves starter Julio Teheran was just a little bit better to deal Volquez his fifth loss. The right-hander has actually pitched fairly well this year, not allowing more than four runs in any start, but he's 0-5 with a 4.41 ERA and 1.67 WHIP to show for it. His life doesn't get any easier Thursday, when the Marlins visit the Dodgers.
May 13 - 10:22 PM

Marlins activated RHP Edinson Volquez from the 10-day disabled list.

As expected, he missed just the minimum time on the disabled list with his blister issue. He'll jump right back into the rotation on Saturday against the Braves.

Edinson Volquez (blister) threw a bullpen session Monday and is on track to rejoin the Marlins' rotation Saturday against the Braves.

He'll have missed just the minimum time on the disabled list due to a blister on his right thumb. Volquez will return to a 4.71 ERA.
May 8 - 6:44 PM

Marlins placed RHP Edinson Volquez on the 10-day disabled list with a right thumb blister.

The blister opened up on Volquez during his start Tuesday night against the Rays -- a start in which he became the first pitcher in MLB history to register eight walks and nine strikeouts over less than five innings. The hope is he'll only have to miss one turn in the rotation.
May 3 - 11:59 AM

Edinson Volquez has been diagnosed with a blister on his right thumb.

Volquez became the first starter in MLB history to register eight walks and nine strikeouts over less than five innings in his injury-shortened outing Tuesday night against the Rays. It's not clear whether the blister will prevent him from taking his next turn in the Marlins' rotation.
May 2 - 9:24 PM

Edinson Volquez exited with a trainer in the fifth inning Tuesday against the Rays.

Volquez walked seven (and struck out nine) before leaving in the top of the fifth at 91 pitches, only 42 of which went for strikes. He was actually charged with eight walks on the night because Dustin McGowan allowed a free pass to Steven Souza after Volquez exited mid at-bat. There should be an update on the veteran right-hander's status within the next hour.
May 2 - 8:51 PM

Edinson Volquez fell to 0-4 after allowing three runs -- two earned -- in 5 2/3 innings Thursday against the Phillies.

Volquez still doesn't have a quality start in five tries. In fact, he's pitched six innings just once. He was supposed to be the Marlins' starter to work deepest into games, but he's averaging right at five innings an outing right now.
