Royals claim Chris Volstad

It was announced today that the Royals claimed former Marlins and Cubs righthander Chris Volstad. I saw Volstad a couple times last season and if I can recall correctly he was looking rather poor at the time. His fastball was working in the high 80′s low 90′s that day and he was struggling in the early innings with control giving up six runs early before settling down and finishing off with five innings of work. It was a cold kind of rainy day but for a guy who was a former major league starter Volstad was quite unimpressive with a weak breaking ball.

If this move is made to save money and ship Luke out of town then I guess this move is okay but it doesn’t fulfill the need to improve the team on the mound now.

Here is a good shot of what Wil Myers did to a Volstad breaking ball:

About The Author

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that.I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.
