Edinson Volquez threw a bullpen today, which was his second bullpen of Spring Training. Today was the first time since camp began that Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle had a chance to watch Volquez throw a bullpen. He had seem him throw before, including about a month ago in mini-camp.
“I thought it was clean and efficient,” Hurdle said of today’s session.
Russell Martin caught Volquez, and said that he could tell Volquez had a plus changeup. He also noted that Volquez was throwing the breaking ball for strikes.
