Royals' Edinson Volquez: Takes loss to Nationals despite quality start

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/3/16) Volquez (3-2) allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk over 7.2 innings with seven strikeouts in a tough loss Monday against the Nationals.

After allowing two runs in the first inning, Volquez settled in and absolutely locked down the Nationals. He induced 11 swinging strikes and nine ground ball outs, threw 20 first-pitch strikes to 29 batters and threw 72 strikes in 114 pitches to keep his team in the game. Unfortunately, Gio Gonzalez (six shutout innings) was better, but Volquez has given owners plenty to like this year. Other than a disaster last time out against the Angels (eight runs in five innings), Volquez has gone at least 5.2 innings and allowed two runs or less every time out.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Roughed up in loss to Angels

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/27/16) Volquez (3-1) allowed eight runs on 12 hits and two walks over five innings Tuesday in a loss Tuesday against the Angels.

Volquez was on fire to begin the season, as he allowed just four earned in his first four starts, but the floodgates opened up Tuesday night. Volquez pounded the zone and got punished for it. The Angels socked 11 singles off him before Johnny Giavotella, slugging .136 entering the night, delivered the coup de grace with a three-run homer, just the second Volquez has allowed all year. Volquez wasn't going to keep avoiding crooked numbers all year long, but regression bit him hard Tuesday night, as his ERA jumped from 1.46 to 3.64.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Tosses seven shutout frames against Tigers

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/21/16) Volquez (3-0) remained undefeated Thursday with seven shutout innings against the Tigers, striking out five while working around five hits and a walk.

He's off to a startlingly good April in his second season as a Royal, having allowed only four runs in 24.2 innings with a 22:8 K:BB. That said, with a 1.43 career WHIP to his name and no full season better than 1.23, Volquez is a prime regression candidate. His 3.45 xFIP is more indicative than his 1.46 ERA of what we can expect from him moving forward.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Earns a no-decision

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/10/16) Volquez allowed two runs on eight hits while striking out 10 over 5.2 innings, but received no decision Sunday against the Twins.

Despite leaving the game with a 2-1 deficit, the Royals mounted a comeback in the late innings and took Volquez off the hook for a possible loss. Although he failed to pitch over six innings in either of his first two starts, he's off to a great start with a sparkling 1.54 ERA. He'll make his next start Friday at the Athletics.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Dominant in win over Mets

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/3/16) Volquez was excellent in Sunday's win over the Mets, tossing six shutout innings with five strikeouts and three walks en route to a win.

The 32-year-old justified manager Ned Yost's decision to name him Opening Day starter, and he could have gone even deeper into the game if not for his elevated pitch count. Volquez was a reliable fantasy starter in 2015, and he looks poised to continue that success after Sunday's performance.
