Although Boston touched Volquez for just one run Monday, the free-agent acquisition once again struggled with his control. [...]
BRADENTON, Fla. â Jacoby Ellsbury reached base in all three plate appearances of his New York Yankees' spring training debut, scoring twice Wednesday in 6-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.Ellsbury, who left World Series champion Boston for a $153 million, seven-year contract with New York, walked twice and had an infield single in the exhibition opener. He was on base in the second inning when Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run homer off Edinson Volquez.
Edinson Volquez was really good in 2008. Since then, he's been really bad. The Pirates resuscitated the careers of A.J. Burnett and Francisco Liriano the last two seasons. Can Pittsburgh pull off another reclamation project with Volquez?
Edinson Volquez needs fixing. His 2008 season, which was his first full season in the big leagues, yielded a 3.21 ERA/3.60 FIP with 3.9 fWAR. He offset an 11.1 percent walk rate with a 24.6 percent strikeout rate thanks to a mid 90s fastball and excellent changeup. However, from 2009-13, Volquez has been perhaps baseball's worst pitcher, his 132 ERA- being the second worst mark in the game. Among qualified pitchers, only Carlos Marmol and Jonathan Sanchez have higher walk rates than Volquez' ugly 12.3 percent mark
