Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez strikes out eight in outing Sunday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/15) Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez surrendered an opening-inning home run, but settled down to throw eight strikeouts over five innings Sunday against the Cubs. Manager Ned Yost was happy to finally see why the team signed him this offseason, reports MLB.com.

"I don't see him struggling," Yost said before the game. "The importance I place on Spring Training performance and the importance you place on Spring Training performance are two different things. I'm looking for him to gain arm strength and I'm looking for him to refine his mechanics where he's down [in the strike zone] consistently. To me, he's right on schedule."

Volquez allowed two runs on six hits, making his ERA now 7.79.

Royals name Yordano Ventura Opening Day starter

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/15) The Royals have named pitcher Yordano Ventura the starter for Opening Day, the Kansas City Star reports.

Ventura gets the call after going 14-10 with a 3.20 ERA and 159:69 K:BB ratio in 183 innings last season in his first full year with the team. He capped the year with an uneven postseason but finished strong, allowing just two earned runs in 12 1/3 innings over two World Series starts. Manager Ned Yost said Wednesday that Ventura's performance in Game 6 of the World Series solidified his confidence in handing the young pitcher the Opening Day assignment.

Yost also said that Ventura will be followed by Danny Duffy, Edinson Volquez, Jason Vargas and Jeremy Guthrie in the rotation.

Royals' Edinson Volquez continues spring struggles

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/23/15) Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez was batted around by the Giants in a start on Monday. 

Volquez gave up four runs in four innings, allowing seven hits and four walks. 

For the spring, Volquez has given up 23 hits in 12 and a third innings and has a 9.49 ERA. 

There also seems to be a difference of opinion on Volquez's stuff at this point in the spring. 

"I just threw a lot of bad pitches today," Volquez said, per MLB.com's Chris Haft. "I threw some strikes, got ahead in the count and then couldn't finish the hitters off. My breaking stuff was bad." 

"I thought he threw the ball much better today," manager Ned Yost said. "He had good command of his fastball down in the zone and good command of his breaking ball down in the zone."

Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez struggles in outing Wednesday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/18/15) Royals starting pitcher Edinson Volquez gave up six runs on eight hits in four innings of work Wednesday. He is hoping to work out all the kinks before the season begins, reports MLB.com.

"I think I felt better this time than I did last time," Volquez said. "I got a couple of pitches up. What happened today hopefully doesn't happen in the regular season. Everything's good."

Manager Ned Yost doesn't believe Volquez will have this problem during the regular season.

"That first inning, he gave up some hits with the [hard] infield," Yost said. "That doesn't happen in the regular season."

Royals confirm deal with RHP Edinson Volquez

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/14) The Royals have made official what CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported nearly two weeks ago. That is, they have signed veteran right-hander Edinson Volquez.

The two-year deal includes a mutual option for 2017. It reportedly guarantees him $20 million.

The sometimes-erratic Volquez enjoyed his finest season since 2008 last year with Pittsburgh. He finished 13-7 with a 3.04 ERA and just 166 hits in 192 2/3 innings. His control improved dramatically as he walked 71.
