Volquez has thrown lights out ball. He is about to be activated possibly before the All Star break. If not before then when the Reds come back from it on Friday the 16th. Bedard is good when he is healthy, but he is on a poor team. Whereas, Volquez is on the front running Reds. A team the leads the league in almost every offensive and is also a top defensive team. Reports on Volquez has him throwing in the high nineties, using all his pitches and having control. I guess those Steroids, oh I mean birth enhancing shots he got in his home country did the trick.
