8th Spring Training TTM Return – Chris Volstad!!

8th Spring Training TTM Return – Chris Volstad!!

Florida Marlins starting pitcher Chris Volstad took just 41 days to return this card to me.  He added his signature in a Blue Sharpie and the color looks great on this 2009 Topps card.

I like Volstad.  He appears to have all of the tools, and his size(6′, 8″) should be a benefit when on the mound.  This is his third year with the Marlins, and I am hoping that he can put a strong enough string of starts together to maintain a spot in their pitching rotation.  The last two years have been rough at times, but the 23-year old has shown that he can be dominant.  He has fast and powerful stuff, and for a young pitcher, his control is good.  If I had one complaint, it would be that he allows for a lot of balls to be put into play – and that is not always a good thing.  If he can raise the level of his game, and understand the intricacies of pitching at the major league level, I think he has the potential to be a solid #2 or #3 starter in the league.

I know that I am cheering for him!!! 

Thanks for the autograph, Chris.  Go FISH!!!
