Edinson Volquez Drawing Interest

Padres pitcher Edinson Volquez is drawing trade interest from other clubs, according to Bill Center of U-T San Diego.  A number of teams had scouts at yesterday's game to check out the right-hander in person.

The Orioles could be among those clubs with interest in Volquez and they have "apparently" mentioned the name of former top pitching prospect Jake Arrieta.  The 27-year-old had a solid debut campaign in 2010 but has been inconsistent on the hill ever since.  One scout suggested the Orioles might also be interested in swapping Arrieto for Anthony Bass.

Volquez, soon to be 30, has an ERA of 5.67 this season with 7.3 K/9 and 4.5 BB/9.  The right-hander is earning $5.725MM this season and will be a free agent this winter.
