This is from the Reds official website tonight after he got taken out after one inning. Looks like its numbness in his fingers. At least its not his back again. Hope he's ok. I just traded him earlier today so Id feel bad if he misses much time.
Reds starter Edinson Volquez is hurt again. Volquez, who was activated from the 15-day disabled list to make Monday's start vs. the Cardinals, lasted only one inning and totaled 24 pitches (14 strikes) in his first game back.
The word from the clubhouse: Volquez left the game with numbness in the pinky and ring fingers of his right hand. He will be evaulated in Cincinnati on Tuesday by team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek.
The Volquez line: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K. With one out, he gave up back-to-back doubles to Colby Rasmus and Albert Pujols (RBI hit). He was on the DL with back spasms and hadn't pitched since May 16 at San Diego.
In the past few days, Volquez had thrown two side bullpen sessions without any soreness.
Mike Lincoln took over for Volquez in the bottom of the second and this isn't what the bullpen needed after a couple of days of heavy activity and no days off until next Monday.
