Edinson Volquez will return to major league rotation Tuesday
Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Reds starter Edinson Volquez has returned to the major league clubhouse and will take the mound on Tuesday night against the Cubs.
Volquez was demoted to Triple-A Louisville in late May after posting a 6.35 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 51 big league innings and then blaming a lack of run support for his own poor results.
Volquez made two starts at Louisville, allowing 10 hits in 14 1/3 innings but only two earned runs. His attitude, for what it’s worth, does seem improved:
Volquez arrived back in Cincinnati on Sunday morning and immediately went to the bullpen with Reds pitching coach Bryan Price to show off his new mechanics. We’ll have to wait and see how he fares against Chicago.
