    Volquez in the rotation

    Obviously Volquez has been brilliant in his first two minor league starts. When is it time? I feel they should promote him to double a or triple a for his next start and see how he does at a bigger level. At this point I don't think you can move Sam Lecure out of the rotation.. You have to move Harang to the bullpen and Volquez in.

    I highly doubt harang leaves the rotation. Dont you know the rules around here.

    He should make his first start when he and the organization are 100% absolutely sure that he is 100%. By the why, when is his suspension over?

    Pretty sure its already over.

    And i disagree. If his 85% is better than harangs 100% throw him in there and get him rolling.

    Trust me, take this one to the bank, you can bet on this...

    Aaron Harang will never be demoted by the Reds to the bullpen this season. You put Volquez in the bullpen, let him build up arm strength and at the point that they shut Leake down due to innings/pitch total then and only then do you try Volquez in the rotation.

    I take nothing to the bank after seeing big Z get moved to the bullpen for the Cubs this year for a while

    The Reds are not the Cubs, Harang is paid to be a starter, not a middle reliver and not at 12 million.

    Re: Volquez in the rotation

    I thought Volquez was making two starts at each minor league level, working his way up to the 100 pitch count. Once he got to that point he's coming to the majors. I actually thought I heard this, or am I just imagining things?

    i realize this but this is the last year of this contract. It's not like he's our future out there. Any deal he gets next year will be under 4 million. I'm all for giving him a few more starts but if they don't improve by the allstar break i'd say move him to the pen.

    I thought I heard this as well. It may have been someone's idea here though. Not sure.

    Edinson Volquez is in Louisville and is expected to start Tuesday vs. Toledo, according to the bats announcer Matt Andrews.

    Pencil Volquez in for July 7 vs. Mets. "That's what I got, barring setbacks," Baker said

    I believe the suspension started immediately when it was given, so the 90 days have passed before he started pitching in the minors or at least before he pitches in Cincy
