Blister forces early exit for Royals P Edinson Volquez
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) Royals pitched Edinson Volquez was only able to go three innings in his team's 7-4 win over the Indians on Thursday.
Royals manager Ned Yost said Volquez developed a blister on his hand that popped during the game, according to FOX Sports Kansas City. That led to command issues, which forced him out of the game.
"I have been dealing with that the last couple of starts and today was the worst," Volquez said, via MLB.com. "When it [burst] in the second inning, I didn't say anything. But the last inning, I couldn't grip the ball. It was tough to throw."
After giving up a run in the second inning, Volquez faced eight batters and allowed two runs in the third. Franklin Morales relieved Volquez in the fourth, went two innings and earned the win. Morales is now 3-0 this season with a 4.50 ERA.
Volquez now has a 2.65 ERA. He struck out three batters and walked six.
Yost isn't expecting for Volquez to miss a start with this minor injury.
"I asked the trainers if he would have to miss a start," Yost said, "and right away they said, 'No, we'll harden it up before his next start.' … I trust our trainers."
