Royals and Edinson Volquez are closing in on a deal believed to be in the two-year, $20M range. Deal is now pending a physical.
Given the way that Volquez pitched for the Pirates last season, he warranted a deal in this price range. It's anyone's guess as to how he'll perform with the Royals, but if he can come close to repeating his numbers from 2014, this will be considered a solid bargain for Kansas City. If Volquez can keep his walks in check like he did last season, he should see success in a Royals uniform.
