Volquez has been named the Marlins' starter for Opening Day, Tim Healey of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The offseason acquisition will open the season as the staff ace, despite posting a 5.37 ERA and allowing 23 home runs last season with the Royals. Nonetheless, Volquez has 12 years of major league experience on his side and has started at least 32 games in each of the past five seasons. The right-hander is a risky draft pick given his recent performance, but certainly provides a steady source of innings.

Volquez has been named as the Marlins' Opening Day starter.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran right-hander gets the nod against the Nationals in his first appearance with his new club. He struggled to a 5.37 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP across 189.1 innings with the Royals last season, but he's looked sharper overall this spring in a smaller sample. Volquez is sporting a 2.89 ERA in 9.1 innings spread across four spring outings. However, there have been some command issues as he's handed out five walks in those 9.1 innings.

Volquez is starting Thursday's WBC game against Venezuela.

EDGE Analysis

He threw 3.2 innings against the USA in an earlier WBC matchup, allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits while striking out two and walking one. The 33-year-old should have a similar workload as he and the Dominican Republic try to avoid dropping their first two games in the second round of pool play.

Volquez threw 3.1 innings in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets, allowing one run on two hits and a walk while striking out two.

EDGE Analysis

Travis d'Arnaud touched him up for a solo home run, but otherwise Volquez did a good job stifling the Mets' bats. The 33-year-old will now join Team Dominican Republic for the WBC, and when he returns to camp with the Marlins could be in line for their Opening Day start.

Volquez tossed one inning in Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Cardinals, allowing one run on one walk while striking out one.

EDGE Analysis

The results weren't great, but this early in the spring Volquez is more concerned with working on certain pitches and getting his arm stretched out. The Marlins' likely Opening Day starter has made at least 30 starts in five straight seasons, proving the Miami rotation with some of the stability it's been lacking, but his performance during that time has been volatile, with ERAs ranging from 3.04 in 2014 to 5.71 in 2012. In most formats, Volquez remains a very risky fantasy selection.

Volquez will get the start in the Marlins' first Grapefruit League game Saturday against the Cardinals, The Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll be followed on the mound by Tom Koehler. Volquez, a likely candidate to be the Marlins' Opening Day starter, is coming off a down season with the Royals that saw him post an unsightly 5.37 ERA and 1.55 WHIP, but has the most experience of any hurler in the Miami rotation and should benefit from the move to the NL East.

Volquez agreed to a two-year, $22M contract with the Marlins on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Volquez spent the last two seasons with the Royals. He posted a 4.43 ERA through 389.2 innings to go along with a 294 strikeouts. The veteran, entering his twelfth season, figures to add a steady arm to the team's rotation.

Volquez was not tendered a qualifying offer Monday, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

$17.2 million is far more than the Royals are willing to pay for the right-hander's services, so this move comes as no surprise. Volquez had a horrific 2016 campaign, although his two seasons prior to that both produced serviceable results, which could help the 33-year-old sign a decent deal in a relatively weak free agent class.
