After watching the pitching performance of Edison Volquez in the 2015 ALCS I can’t help but remember the ups and downs of his career. While a bright spot in the Reds rotation for years Edison Volquez had to undergo Tommy John surgery in 2009.
Tonight he dominated the Blue Jay lineup while firing 95+ mph fastballs with ease while mixing an array of pitches. Tonight his fastball averaged 94.77mph which is the highest he has averaged in a game since 2012. This just goes to show you that careers are far from over after any kind of elbow surgery.
