Volquez is the safer pick here. I'm not sure what to expect out of Pineda as a rookie, and he has that putrid M's offense behind him to give him run support (or lack thereof).

Pineda, not a Volquez fan that much.

I'd go with Volquez this year. Pineda is still raw (needs a changeup, can't rule out a demotion) and like Volquez, he's a bit of an injury risk too.

volquez, has shown he can dominate in the majors. pineda has a lot of potential but hasn't shown it against major league hitters.

Volquez for sure. He's going to strikeout a ton of people and should bring down his walk rate this year.
League Setup:
13 Team Points League
6 Hitters 3 Pitchers (Positions don't matter)
1B = 1, 2B = 2, 3B = 3, HR = 4, RBI = 1
Win = 12, Save = 5
