News: Volquez has been confirmed as the Wild Card starter for the Pirates. Impact: A surprising year from Volquez gives him the chance to decide the Pirates' fate: head to Washington on Friday for a playoff series or watch another trip to the postseason end early. Leading Pittsburgh with 190.2 innings pitched while sporting a 3.07 ERA, Volquez has been the team's most valuable pitcher this season. However, his FIP and xFIP are a full run higher than his ERA, so his strong regular season results might not be reproducible in the playoffs.(RotoWire, )

News: Volquez would start in the NL Wild Card game for the Pirates on Wednesday, if necessary, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports. Impact: Volquez made his final start of the regular season Thursday, cashing in a strong performance of seven shutout innings for the Pirates. The team enters Sunday's games just one game back of the Cardinals for the NL Central lead, so if they're able to force a tie, the two teams would play Monday for the division title. In any case, if the Pirates end up in second place, they would play Wednesday in the NL Wild Card game. Volquez would take the hill in that contest on five days' rest.(RotoWire, )

News: Volquez (13-7) wrapped up his regular season on a high note Thursday, striking out 10 Braves over seven shutout innings while allowing just four hits and a walk. Impact: One of the most inconsistent pitchers in the game throughout his career, Volquez had a breakout season as a 31-year-old, posting a 3.04 ERA and 1.23 WHIP -- both career bests. Quite the turnaround from last year's 6.01 ERA as a Padre. Now we'll see if he can keep it going into the playoffs.(RotoWire, )
