Rehabbing Volquez starts long-tossing

Quote:
KANSAS CITY -- Injured Reds starter Edinson Volquez has done his first throwing since going on the disabled list with right elbow tendinitis.

Back in Cincinnati on Thursday, Volquez long-tossed and made 25 throws at a distance of 60 feet. He was scheduled to do likewise Friday.

"He said he's had no problem with his elbow, his forearm -- nothing. He felt fine," Reds pitching coach **** Pole said before Friday Interleague series opener with the Royals.

On June 1 at St. Louis during his first start back from being on the 15-day disabled list with back spasms, Volquez lasted just 24 pitches over one inning. He felt numbness in his fingers.

The next day, the 25-year-old Volquez was diagnosed with tendinitis and placed back on the DL. He was ordered not to pick up a baseball for 7-10 days.

Although eligible for activation from the DL on Wednesday, there was no timetable known yet for when Volquez could return to pitch for the Reds.

"He'll probably take a couple of days, and when we get back, we'll see where we are as far as getting him on a mound," Pole said. "We'll see how he feels when we get back."

Lefty Matt Maloney took Volquez's place in the rotation and made his second start Friday vs. the Royals.

In nine starts this season, Volquez is 4-2 with a 4.35 ERA.
