Analysis: Volquez, who made his major league debut with Texas in 2005, went on the DL on July 7 while with the Marlins because of a left knee injury that ended his season. The elbow issue surfaced during his rehabilitation. The right-hander pitched a no-hitter against the Diamondbacks on June 3, part of a three-start winning streak in which he posted a 0.41 ERA. However, Volquez then went 1-1 with a 6.46 ERA in his final five outings.
