June 20 7:38 PM PT8:38 PM MT9:38 PM CT10:38 PM ET22:38 ET2:38 GMT10:38 7:38 PM MST9:38 PM EST10:08 PM VEN6:38 UAE (+1)9:38 PM CT-Edinson Volquez fell to 3-8, allowing six runs on five hits and five walks in 4.2 innings, as the Miami Marlins lost to the Washington Nationals 12-3 on Tuesday. Volquez struck out four, ending the game with a 4.19 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Volquez has a 10.38 ERA in his last two starts after posting a 0.41 mark in winning his previous three, which included a no-hitter against Arizona on June 3.
June 14 1:13 PM PT2:13 PM MT3:13 PM CT4:13 PM ET16:13 ET20:13 GMT4:13 1:13 PM MST3:13 PM EST3:43 PM VEN0:13 UAE (+1)3:13 PM CT-Edinson Volquez allowed five runs - four earned - on four hits and four walks in 4.0 innings as the Miami Marlins defeated the Oakland Athletics 11-6 on Wednesday. Volquez struck out three, ending the game with a 3.72 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was Volquez's first start at home since he no-hit the Diamondbacks on June 3, and the right-hander stumbled after winning his previous three outings behind a 0.41 ERA.
June 9 8:39 AM PT9:39 AM MT10:39 AM CT11:39 AM ET11:39 ET15:39 GMT23:39 8:39 AM MST10:39 AM EST11:09 AM VEN19:39 UAE10:39 AM CT-Edinson Volquez improved to 3-7, allowing three hits and two walks over 7.0 scoreless innings, as the Miami Marlins defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-1 on Thursday. Volquez struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.41 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Volquez has allowed only one run in 22 innings over his last three starts, including a no-hitter last Saturday against Arizona. He was winless in his first nine starts after being signed to a two-year, $22-million contract in the offseason. He'll make his second start of the season against the A's on Wednesday. Four starts ago in Oakland, he allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings of a 4-1 loss.
June 8 8:40 AM PT9:40 AM MT10:40 AM CT11:40 AM ET11:40 ET15:40 GMT23:40 8:40 AM MST10:40 AM EST11:10 AM VEN19:40 UAE10:40 AM CT-Volquez (2-7, 3.79 ERA), coming off the sixth no-hitter in franchise history, to the mound Thursday as they open a four-game series at Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Volquez tossed a gem against Arizona last Saturday, staying in after he hurt his right ankle in the first inning.
June 5 8:31 AM PT9:31 AM MT10:31 AM CT11:31 AM ET11:31 ET15:31 GMT23:31 8:31 AM MST10:31 AM EST11:01 AM VEN19:31 UAE10:31 AM CT-Volquez, who pitched a no-hitter on Saturday, has a swollen right ankle. He received treatment before Sunday's game after getting hurt during a play at first base on the first batter Saturday.
Analysis: His status for his next start is uncertain. Aside from his last historic outing, Volquez hasn't been all that good this season. Volquez will test his injured right ankle with a bullpen on Tuesday.
June 3 4:20 PM PT5:20 PM MT6:20 PM CT7:20 PM ET19:20 ET23:20 GMT7:20 4:20 PM MST6:20 PM EST6:50 PM VEN3:20 UAE (+1)6:20 PM CT-Edinson Volquez improved to 2-7, allowing zero hits and two walks in a complete-game shutout, as the Miami Marlins defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-0 on Saturday. Volquez struck out 10, ending the game with a 3.79 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Volquez's no-hitter was the sixth in Marlins history and first since Henderson Alvarez blanked the Tigers in the 2013 season finale, and it followed up an excellent performance on Monday in which he yielded a run on three hits over six innings to beat the Phillies. After going winless in each of his first nine starts in a Miami uniform, the veteran right-hander has clearly risen back into top form.
May 30 8:44 AM PT9:44 AM MT10:44 AM CT11:44 AM ET11:44 ET15:44 GMT23:44 8:44 AM MST10:44 AM EST11:14 AM VEN19:44 UAE10:44 AM CT-Edinson Volquez improved to 1-7, allowing one run on three hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Miami Marlins defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 on Monday. Volquez struck out four, ending the game with a 4.44 ERA and 1.58 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Volquez snapped his career-high, eight-game losing streak. It was his first win since Aug. 25 when he beat Miami as a member of the Royals. Volquez had gone 16 consecutive starts without a win, and his seven straight losses to start this season tied a Marlins record. It certainly wasn't all his fault, having entered the game with the second-worst run support in the majors.
May 24 5:42 PM PT6:42 PM MT7:42 PM CT8:42 PM ET20:42 ET0:42 GMT8:42 5:42 PM MST7:42 PM EST8:12 PM VEN4:42 UAE (+1)7:42 PM CT-Edinson Volquez fell to 0-7, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Miami Marlins lost to the Oakland Athletics 4-1 on Wednesday. Volquez struck out two, ending the game with a 4.82 ERA and 1.67 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Volquez tied the Marlins franchise record for most consecutive losses to open a season. The 33-year-old right-hander has dropped eight straight decisions overall dating to 2016, the longest drought of his career. ''When I signed on here I was hoping to be better than what I am right now,'' Volquez said. He next takes the ball Tuesday against the Phillies. At Philadelphia on April 27, Volquez allowed three runs and six hits in 5.2 innings.
May 19 8:28 AM PT9:28 AM MT10:28 AM CT11:28 AM ET11:28 ET15:28 GMT23:28 8:28 AM MST10:28 AM EST10:58 AM VEN19:28 UAE10:28 AM CT-Edinson Volquez fell to 0-6, allowing five runs on eight hits and three walks in 6.0 innings, as the Miami Marlins lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-2 on Thursday. Volquez struck out four, ending the game with a 4.87 ERA and 1.70 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Volquez has 41 strikeouts in 40 2/3 innings, but that's about all he's done right. Walks continue to kill him.
May 14 8:39 AM PT9:39 AM MT10:39 AM CT11:39 AM ET11:39 ET15:39 GMT23:39 8:39 AM MST10:39 AM EST11:09 AM VEN19:39 UAE10:39 AM CT-Edinson Volquez fell to 0-5, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Miami Marlins lost to the Atlanta Braves 3-1 on Saturday. Volquez struck out five, ending the game with a 4.41 ERA and 1.67 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Volquez had been on the disabled list due to a blister on his right thumb, pitched his first game since May 2.
May 2 6:26 PM PT7:26 PM MT8:26 PM CT9:26 PM ET21:26 ET1:26 GMT9:26 6:26 PM MST8:26 PM EST8:56 PM VEN5:26 UAE (+1)8:26 PM CT-Volquez came off the DL to start Saturday against Atlanta.
Analysis: The veteran right-hander missed just one start due to a blister he developed against Tampa Bay on May 2, an outing in which he walked eight but struck out nine in 4 1/3 innings. Volquez is still in search of his first victory, having gone 0-4 with a 4.71 ERA though six starts.
Apr. 27 2:55 PM PT3:55 PM MT4:55 PM CT5:55 PM ET17:55 ET21:55 GMT5:55 2:55 PM MST4:55 PM EST5:25 PM VEN1:55 UAE (+1)4:55 PM CT-Edinson Volquez fell to 0-3, allowing three runs - two earned - on six hits and four walks in 5.2 innings, as the Miami Marlins lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 on Thursday. Volquez struck out two, ending the game with a 4.44 ERA and 1.68 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Since throwing five scoreless innings in his season debut, Volquez has gone 0-3 with a 5.59 ERA in four starts. He's walked four batters in each of the last three, failing to get through six innings in any of them.
Apr. 20 9:01 AM PT10:01 AM MT11:01 AM CT12:01 PM ET12:01 ET16:01 GMT0:01 9:01 AM MST11:01 AM EST11:31 AM VEN20:01 UAE11:01 AM CT-Volquez was pulled after three innings Wednesday as he fell to 0-2, allowing four runs, five hits and three walks at Seattle.
Analysis: It was Volquez's first loss against Seattle, as he previously was 5-0 in eight appearances. He walked four and failed to get through five innings for the second straight start. "Edinson just didn't seem to be himself today," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. "His stuff was up, and his command was off." Maybe he'll have better luck Wednesday in Philadelphia, having gone 4-1 with a 2.17 ERA in six career starts against the Phillies.
Apr. 15 9:22 PM PT10:22 PM MT11:22 PM CT12:22 AM ET0:22 ET4:22 GMT12:22 9:22 PM MST11:22 PM EST11:52 PM VEN8:22 UAE11:22 PM CT-Volquez allowed five hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings Friday but surrendered only two runs in a no-decision versus the Mets.
Analysis: After throwing a bullpen session Thursday, Volquez's start was pushed up a day so he could replace Adam Conley, who pitched the 16th in the extra-inning loss Thursday. "In the first inning I was really strong, but after that I was a little tired,'' Volquez said. ''Everybody's tired.''
Apr. 10 9:55 AM PT10:55 AM MT11:55 AM CT12:55 PM ET12:55 ET16:55 GMT0:55 9:55 AM MST11:55 AM EST12:25 PM VEN20:55 UAE11:55 AM CT-Volquez allowed five runs - four earned - and seven hits in six innings of a 5-2 loss to the Mets on Sunday.
Analysis: Volquez didn't allow a run against Washington in his 2017 debut, so this was a step back.
Apr. 3 3:35 PM PT4:35 PM MT5:35 PM CT6:35 PM ET18:35 ET22:35 GMT6:35 3:35 PM MST5:35 PM EST6:05 PM VEN2:35 UAE (+1)5:35 PM CT-Volquez threw five scoreless innings in his Marlins' debut Monday at Washington, though he didn't get a decision in the team's eventual 4-2 loss. The right-hander struck out six while yielding just four hits and a walk.
Analysis: Though he's coming off a brutal 2016 campaign with Kansas City, the 33-year-old could be a rebound candidate in Miami. During Volquez's last season pitching for a National League team, he compiled a very solid 13-7 record and a 3.04 ERA in 32 appearances (31 starts) with the Pirates in 2014.
