Statistically, The Worst Starting Pitcher in a Decade?
Edinson Volquez has an unpleasant distinction.
Statistically speaking, he's the worst starting pitcher of the last century.......Volquez fell to 1-6 for the season, 1-10 for his career, but the really ugly number is his career ERA, which is 9.20 for 14 games (11 starts). Since 1900, no pitcher with at least 10 career starts has finished with an ERA of nine or higher.
If you look Volquez up on ESPN, you see he was owned in 17% of leagues. It should probably tell us something when almost 1 in 5 leagues have an owner so bad they somehow ended up with and failed to drop the worst pitcher in over 100 years.
