Volquez (elbow) was released by Miami on Wednesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Volquez is busy recovering from a UCL tear that warranted Tommy John surgery in early August, but was released in order to create a spot on the team's 40-man roster. As Spencer notes, the Marlins could choose to re-sign the right-hander to a minor-league deal while he sits out most, if not all, of the 2018 season rehabbing from the injury. During 17 starts with the team this past year, he posted a 4.19 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 92.1 innings. Miami still owes Volquez $13 million from the contract he signed last November,

Volquez underwent successful Tommy John surgery to repair his elbow Friday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Volquez was diagnosed with a UCL tear this past Tuesday and will likely miss most, if not all, of the 2018 season while recovering from this injury. The right-hander is also dealing with patellar tendinitis in his knee, an issue that has sidelined him since early July.

Volquez (knee) was diagnosed with a UCL tear Tuesday and will undergo Tommy John surgery Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Volquez has been on the shelf since early July with patellar tendinitis in his knee, but he is also apparently dealing with a severe elbow injury. This is obviously a disappointing setback for the veteran pitcher who tossed a no-hitter just two months ago. Volquez will be sidelined for the foreseeable future and could realistically miss the entire 2018 campaign.

Volquez (knee) is not expected to return before the end of the 2017 season, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Volquez's rehab program hasn't been going well thus far, and given how far out of the playoff race the team is, it appears that the Marlins will just shut him down and let him prepare for 2018. No official word has come forth on this front, so a return during September isn't out of the question yet. If the veteran is in fact done for the season, he'll finish with a 4.19 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP as he heads into his second season with the Fish.

Manager Don Mattingly reported that Volquez (knee) was able to throw Monday, but that things "did not go well," Tim Healey of the Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Volquez has been on the disabled list with patellar tendinitis since July 7 and doesn't appear to be making much progress and evidenced by Mattingly's comments Monday. The veteran pitcher will undergo a second opinion on his knee and doesn't figure to return anytime in the near future.

Volquez (knee) was diagnosed with patellar tendinitis, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Don Mattingly sounded confident that the patellar tendinitis would be more of a short-term issue than a long-term one. He will miss his next scheduled start Sunday, but he may be available for the club's next turn through the rotation.

Volquez (knee) underwent an MRI on Friday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Volquez was placed on the 10-day DL with left knee pain a week ago, and has continued to feel discomfort as the second half of the season begins. The right-hander should learn the results of the tests within the next 24 hours, with a definitive timetable coming into focus shortly after.

Volquez (knee) was placed on the 10-day DL on Friday, retroactive to July 6, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Don Mattingly has downplayed the severity of the injury. With the backdated stint, Volquez will be eligible to return as soon as July 16 -- for the Marlins' third game after the All-Star break. Chris O'Grady was recalled to take Volquez's spot on the active roster.

Manager Don Mattingly said he doesn't expect Volquez (knee) to miss significant time, Tim Healey of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Volquez was removed after four innings in his last start due to some left knee pain, but further evaluations have assured the team it isn't anything overly concerning. "It's something that he's had in the past," said Mattingly. "A little bit of rest, a little bit of medication, I feel like after the [All-Star break] he'll be ready to roll." All signs indicate Volquez will be back on the mound sometime between June 14 and June 16, when the Marlins host the Dodgers for a three-game set.

Manager Don Mattingly said Volquez was removed after four innings due to a "balky" knee, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

This helps explain why Volquez was lifted after tossing just 65 pitches Wednesday. The severity of the injury is unclear at this point, but he's expected to see team doctors in the coming days, so there should be a better idea about how long he might be sidelined after that. In the meantime, his status for his next start remains uncertain.
