Report: Pirates sign Volquez

The Pirates have reached a one-year, $5 million agreement with free-agent right-hander Edinson Volquez, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com and MLB Network, who adds that the deal is pending a physical.

Volquez split last season between the Padres and Dodgers, going 9-12 with a 5.71 ERA over 33 games, including 32 starts. The 30-year-old struggled with his control, walking 4.1 batters per nine innings, a rate below his career mark of 4.8.

In nine seasons with the Rangers, Reds, Padres and Dodgers, Volquez is 53-52 with a 4.75 ERA and 8.4 strikeouts per nine innings.

I love it. Not much time remains at Winter Meetings, and the Cubs haven’t done squat. I’m a 30+ year diehard fan, but with the lackadaisical approach Theo and Co. are taking, they truly deserve to sit in the basement.
