    Volquez to Make Season Debut July 7th vs. Mets

    Barring any setbacks, of course. Figured this deserved it's own thread:

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

    Batsfan just posted this in tonight's minor league game thread:

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

    Based on what information?

    Do you honestly think the Reds would let him pitch if they thought it would jeopordize his career?

    I don't like it.

    My guess is they want to see if he can be reliable before the trade deadline, before deciding whether or not they'll need to pay up (both in prospects and money) for another starter via trade.

    Unfortunately, if he remains healthy and effective, Volquez will only replace Leake's spot. The Reds still need a TOR arm if they are to do anything substantial.

    No matter which way the Reds and Volquez went at this time, I am going to have some insecure feelings, because I want them both to do, really very well and worry if he will be alright.

    Just like anyone, I hope this isn’t rushing him.

    3 Starts at AAA, his Start on the 7th and then the All Star Break where he can get some extra rest before going again. I don't really think this is rushing him all that much. The original plan had him going 4 more starts in the minors and then his rehab time would have run out and brought him up anyway. Get him that last start in the majors instead of AAA and then give him an extra day or two. No big deal IMO.

    Its more about how he'll be used afterwards and I don't think coming up and getting this one start before the break will change that.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Someone do the math and figure out what starter would have been going then....

    Take a guess... the Leakester.

    If I'm doing it right, then July 7th would fall on Mike Leake's start.

    you get the word "vibe" right? it FEELS too soon. I have zero information. I do have the benefit (same as the Reds) of history. I don't need to even look that far back, just look to Liriano's 2009 season.

    JMO, but it is too soon.

    Re: Volquez to Make Season Debut July 7th vs. Mets

    From John Fay's blog:

    That could be the result of better mechanics. Volquez came to Cincinnati before beginning the rehab assignment, so pitching coach Bryan Price could check his mechanics.

    “We wanted to make sure his mechanics were right,” Baker said. “Some guys come back better and stronger after they’re hurt . . . Guys get more mechanically sound because they learn how to throw more correctly.

    “We saw Volquez before when he was flailing arms and legs. He’s probably more under control and more sound.”

    Volquez will start when he returns.

    “That’s what best for him in the long run,” Baker said. “We’ve got a decision to make when it happens. Those are good decisions to make. When he comes back that’s like making a trade for an All-Star, which he was, through a non-trade.”

    If the Reds don't skip anyone's start because of the off day on the 24th, it's due to be Leake's day to start. If they skip LeCure to keep Harang and the rest of the rotation on a regular schedule, it's Arroyo's day to start.

    I don't like that they've already set his MLB debut. That just seems like an enormous amount of unnecessary pressure. Why not see how he does in Louisville a couple times first before announcing his debut?
