The good for Edison Volquez (0-3, 9.64 ERA) in tonight’s start vs the New York Yankees. He retired eight of nine batters at one point, walked just 2 batters. The Bad: Volquez still got roughed up like he has in every spring start, allowing 4 hits and 4 earned runs in 5 innings pitched. Volquez allowed 4 runs in the first two innings, than threw three scoreless innings afterwards. Volquez has struggled with his fastball command all spring and threw a lot of sinkers tonight. Volquez threw¬†86 pitches, 59 for strikes.
Vs Yankees (3/21/14): 5 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 4 SO, 2 BB, 86 Pitches (59 Strikes)
