The Chris Volstad era in Chicago is over. Yesterday the Royals claimed Volstad from the Cubs off of outright waivers. The fact that Volstad was put on outright waivers shows exactly what the Cubs thought of Volstad after a horrendous season. Some speculated that Volstad would be given a chance to compete for a spot in the 2013 rotation, that obviously won’t happen now. Volstad will join his third organization in three years (Marlins, Cubs, Royals) after being acquired for Carlos Zambrano last offseason.
