2015 ex-Reds, 1990 Score style: Edinson Volquez (Super Star)
In 2008, Edinson Volquez finished fourth in the National League Rookie of the Year voting. But he wasn’t a rookie. He had exceeded rookie limitations during the 2007 season with the Texas Rangers, but some folks got confused when they filled out their ballots in 2008. Volquez had an excellent year with a 17-6 record and a 3.21 ERA, but he wasn’t a rookie.
It wasn’t until 2013 with the Pirates that he excelled again, and he is continuing that excellence this year in Kansas City. Perhaps he should have been an All-Star, but his manager decided to give him the break to rest instead.
