Volstad enjoys success in 'B' game action


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Rockies non-roster right-handed pitching staff hopeful Chris Volstad helped his cause with two scoreless innings on Sunday in an 8-5 victory over the White Sox in a "B" game at Glendale, Ariz.

Volstad had been competing for a rotation spot, but Rockies manager Walt Weiss said on Sunday that they're looking at Volstad in middle relief. Two other middle relief candidates - lefty Josh Outman and righty Adam Ottavino -- did not fare as well.

Outman gave up three runs and four hits, including a homer, in two innings. He struck out two, hit one and walked one. Ottavino gave up five hits, including a homer, and two runs in two innings, with one strikeout and one walk.

Eric Young went 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored, and third-base hopeful Nolan Arenado went 1-for-2 with a double and an RBI.
