Los Angeles Dodgers SP Edinson Volquez will get the start Wednesday, Sept. 4, against the Colorado Rockies.
Fantasy Tip: Volquez is 0-4 with a 13.08 ERA in five starts against the Rockies this season, walking 13 batters, striking out just 11 and allowed 43 hits in 21 1/3 innings. The Rockies are hitting .406 against him this season, so if you're in a daily NL-only fantasy league, he should be avoided.

The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with free-agent SP Edinson Volquez (Padres) Wednesday, Aug. 28. The major league deal is pending a physical and other undisclosed details. The San Diego Padres will pay all but prorated minimum of $5.725 million.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain where exactly Volquez fits in, but Chris Capuano might be pitching hurt and could use a break. With rosters expanding Sept. 1, roster space isn't expected to be a problem. Volquez remains useful only in NL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats for his strikeout potential.
