Worst Case Scenario for Volquez
The Reds announced that this morning pitcher Edinson Volquez had Tommy John surgery performed by Dr. Timothy Kremcheck. This surgery means that the Reds number one pitcher will be out at least 12 months recovering from this procedure. So the Reds will be without Volquez until at least after the All Star break next season. It seems that what was once a very promising part of this Reds team, the rotation, now has more questions than ever. What is the deal with Harang? Can Arroyo stay consistent? Is Bailey the real deal? Can Micah Owings be a starting pitcher? With our ace out a year, I am worried about this staff.
