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. Apr 27 - 4:50 PM

Edinson Volquez surrendered four runs on five hits over three innings in Wednesday's loss to the Mariners.

The Marlins handed Volquez a 2-0 lead heading into the bottom of the first inning. That would not last for long, as the veteran right-hander proceeded to give up one run in the first inning, two in the second and one more in the third before being relieved of duty. His overall results through four starts have been somewhat mixed, with two starts of two or fewer runs allowed and two of four or more. This all equals out to an unappealing 4.82 ERA and 1.66 WHIP. A road date with the Phillies shows next on his schedule.

Edinson Volquez labored through Friday’s start against the Mets, giving up two runs on five hits and four walks over 4 2/3 innings.

Volquez was pulled at 91 pitches with two outs in the fifth inning. The Mets appeared to have him on the ropes in the second and third innings, but he was able to limit the damage to one run before Lucas Duda took him deep in his final inning of work. The veteran right-hander struck out five in the no-decision and now owns a 3.45 ERA through his first three turns this season. He lines up for a start against the Mariners on the road next time out.

Edinson Volquez will start on Friday against the Mets.

Adam Conley had to throw an inning in relief during Thursday's 16-inning marathon, so he'll be backed off at least a day or two. Volquez will be pitching on regular rest.
Apr 14 - 8:43 AM

Edinson Volquez struggled in a losing effort against the Mets on Sunday allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits across six innings.

Volquez punched out seven on the night while walking just one, but was the victim of the long ball. Jay Bruce and Michael Conforto each clubbed solo homers as part of the damage against him. The right-hander will carry a 3.27 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 13/2 K/BB ratio into a rematch against these Mets at home on Saturday.
Apr 9 - 11:03 PM

Edinson Volquez spun five scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Opening Day on Monday.

Volquez got off to a rocky start, as Trea Turner and Adam Eaton reached against him to begin the first inning, but he struck out the next three batters he faced to escape the threat. He gave up just four hits in all while walking one and fanning six. He also had the first multi-hit game of his career. A win would have been nice, but all in all it was a successful debut. Volquez lines up for a start against the Mets this weekend.
Apr 3 - 4:09 PM

The Marlins have named Edinson Volquez their Opening Day starter.

He'll be followed by Dan Straily, Tom Koehler and Wei-Yin Chen. Adam Conley will surely be the fifth starter, but the Marlins surprisingly didn't list him among the starting five yet. It will be the fifth Opening Day start of Volquez's career.
Mar 24 - 3:27 PM

Edinson Volquez allowed two runs -- one earned -- over three innings versus the Cardinals on Thursday.

It was Volquez's first outing since returning from the World Baseball Classic and a piggyback start for Volquez and Dan Straily, who got the "official" start. The veteran right-hander has generally pitched pretty well this spring, although he's managed just a 5/5 K/BB ratio across 9 1/3 innings.
Mar 23 - 5:19 PM

Edinson Volquez turned in a shaky outing Saturday in the WBC, surrendering three runs (one earned) on six hits over 3 2/3 innings in the Dominican Republic's come-from-behind win over the United States.

He added a walk and two strikeouts. The right-hander didn’t miss many bats on Saturday and was hurt by an error that led to two unearned runs in the third inning. His Marlins teammate Christian Yelich gave him the most trouble, burning Volquez for a pair of doubles. 30 of the right-hander’s 52 pitches went for strikes. The Dominican Republic, still undefeated in the WBC since 2009, have already clinched a spot in the quarterfinals next week in San Diego.
Mar 11 - 11:24 PM

Edinson Volquez yielded one run in 3 1/3 innings Monday against the Mets.

He struck out two and walked one. Volquez's next appearance will come against Team USA as he pitches for the Dominican Republic on Saturday.
Mar 6 - 5:01 PM

Edinson Volquez worked a couple of scoreless innings out of the pen Wednesday against the Astros.

Volquez hasn't allowed a run in three innings this spring. He'll now join the Dominican team for the WBC.
Mar 1 - 5:19 PM

Edinson Volquez gave up a run in his lone inning of work in a start against the Cardinals on Saturday.

This will be his first season with the Marlins after spending the last two years with the Royals. His 5.37 ERA in 34 starts last year was not good. He was a quality pitcher before that, delivering a 3.55 ERA in 2015 and a 3.04 ERA in 2014. He has a rotation slot locked down in a good pitcher's park in Miami. Fantasy owners should expect Volquez to bounce back somewhat this year.
Feb 25 - 5:42 PM

Edinson Volquez will pitch for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic.

Dellin Betances, Alex Colome, Johnny Cueto, Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes will also represent the D.R. in next month's tournament. The Dominican Republic won the Classic four years ago and should have a good chance to repeat in 2017. This will be the third time Volquez has pitched in the WBC.
Feb 1 - 9:39 PM

The younger brother of Edinson Volquez has been stabbed to death in the Dominican Republic.

Brandy Volquez, 25, was reportedly involved in an early-morning fight Monday with two men at a barbershop in Santo Domingo. There is one person in police custody. It's yet another unspeakable family tragedy for Edinson, who lost his father hours before starting Game 1 of the 2015 World Series. "I will always remember you my brother. May God have you in his kingdom," the newly-signed Marlins right-hander wrote on his Instagram account Tuesday. "RIP one love."

Marlins signed RHP Edinson Volquez to a two-year, $22 million contract.

Volquez will make $9 million in 2017 and $13 million in 2018 on a deal that was agreed to at the beginning of this week. It's a nice pickup for the Marlins, who badly needed rotation help and still do. Volquez has averaged 187 innings per season over the last five seasons, though he did struggle with the Royals in 2016. The 33-year-old carries some bounceback potential into the National League and spacious Marlins Park.
