CINCINNATI (AP) - Reds right-hander Edinson Volquez is expected to miss a year after having reconstructive surgery on his right elbow.
Volquez had surgery Monday to repair a torn ligament and other damage in his pitching elbow.
The 26-year-old Volquez went 4-2 in nine starts before his elbow began bothering him. He has been on the disabled list since June 2.
Volquez was the Reds' best pitcher last year, when he went 17-6 and was the team's lone All-Star. Cincinnati got him before the 2008 season in a trade with Texas for outfielder Josh Hamilton
