Just after the Pittsburgh Pirates came to an agreement with Francisco Liriano for three years, Jon Heyman is reporting that they are now turning their attention to re-signing Edinson Volquez. The Pirates already signed A.J. Burnett earlier this off-season, so they seem serious about solidifying their five-man rotation, which also includes Gerrit Cole and eventually Charlie Morton, once he returns from his hip surgery. Vance Worley looks like the most likely to fill that spot until Morton returns. If there are any updates on Volquez today, we will post them here.
