The Rockies have designated 26-year old righty starter/reliever Chris Volstad for assignment.  Volstad pitched in 10 games (9 starts) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 4-1 with a 4.79 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP.  He also pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Rockies earlier this year and he was 0-0 with a 10.80 ERA and a 2.40 WHIP.  Volstad has now pitched in 130 games (123 starts) in his first six years in the majors and he is 35-51 with a 4.94 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.  This won’t be much of a loss for the Rockies.  They needed Volstad’s roster spot for Roy Oswalt, who is starting tonight for the Rockies.

UPDATE:  (6/23/2013) – The Rockies have outrighted Chris Volstad to AAA.
