Padres Place Volquez On Release Waivers

WEDNESDAY: San Diego has requested release waivers on Volquez, according to Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com (on Twitter).

SATURDAY: The Padres announced that they have designated Edinson Volquez for assignment.  In a related move, the club has recalled right-handed pitcher Brad Brach from Triple-A Tucson.

Volquez came to the Padres as part of five-player trade with Reds in December of 2011 that sent Mat Latos to Cincinnati.  Earlier this year, our own Steve Adams reflected on the deal and noted that Volquez was still believed to have upside when he came out west, but he followed up a decent year in 2012 with a rough 2013 campaign.

The 30-year-old has a 6.01 ERA on the year with 7.3 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9 in 27 starts.  Despite his struggles this season, he picked up interest from clubs looking for a boost to the backend of the rotation in a thin trade market.  Volquez is set to hit the open market this winter.
