Downside To Each Team’s Biggest Free Agent Signing: American League

Kansas City Royals: Edinson Volquez
There is a lot to like about Volquez but he just isn’t James Shields when it’s all said and done.  Shields is one of the most consistent pitchers in the Majors today, winning at least 12 games in each of the last seven seasons while Volquez hit 12 wins last year for the first time since 2008.  When Volquez pitches well, he’s awesome!  But he doesn’t bring the same game every time he’s on the mound and that could be a problem for Kansas City as they try to repeat as American League champions.
