Volquez hasn’t been as good since the calendar switched to May, but he had a great April, and his overall numbers are still solid.
The right-hander allowed just one run in three of his first four starts. He also has yet to allow more than three runs in any start this season although he did go just three innings in his last outing due to a blister.
The blister led to a lot of control issues, six walks and a balk, in that start, but hopefully Volquez will be over that for his owners next week. He is still 2-3 with a 2.65 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings despite no victories in his last three outings.
