MVN is reporting that the Marlins called up Chris Volstad to make his major league debut on Sunday against he Rockies. Scheduled started Mark Hendrickson is allegedly being demote to the bullpen. While Albuquerque is not terribly far from Denver, it’s a bit surprising, if true, to have Volstad start on 3-days rest. Plus, the Marlins would have to add him to the 40-man roster. If true, it shows the Fish are serious about the season and willing to risk bringing up a top prospect to turn the ship around.
Update: He’s up but not starting today.
