The Fish top prospect was just called up. The 21-year old will likely come out of the 'pen. Despite being listed as the Marlins top prospect, Volstad hasn't exactly dominated strikeouts-wise with just 46 K in 70 innings in double-A. He's 6-foot-7 with an inconsistent fastball that can reach 94 but often can settle at 88 or 89. His curve is pretty good and the change is still a work in progress. He'll likely come out of the pen at first.

I believe Volstad is starting Thursday or Friday in place of Mark Hendrickson.

Hell of a start. Volstad goes two innings of relief in his league debut and gets the win, then he gets a start, goes 8 and 2/3 for another victory. He has a 6:3 K:BB with one earned run allowed and just seven hits (.194 BAA). The thing that catches the eyes of the scouts is his intelligence with the strike zone and overall in getting grounders and avoiding walks. I wouldn't be surprised if he makes a run at ROY in the 2nd half.
