Right-hander Edinson Volquez has agreed to a major league deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers pending a physical, according to reports by Fox Sports and the Los Angeles Times.

ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney earlier reported that the Dodgers had serious interest in bringing in Volquez, whom the Padres designated for assignment Sunday.

The Padres will pay all but the pro-rated minimum of his $5.725 million salary, according to Fox Sports.

Volquez is 9-10 with a 6.01 ERA in 27 starts this season. He has struck out 116 and walked 69 in 142 1/3 innings.

The Dodgers may be interested in Volquez as a possible replacement in the rotation for Chris Capuano, who has a 4.74 ERA in 20 games for the Dodgers this year.

Hopefully he can pitch better than Capuano has been his last few outings.

I don't know about this Jeff.� LOL- what is Coletti thinking?� Er- a guy with an ERA of *6*.� I don't know about this.� I'd rather have Capuano out there instead even though he has struggled.� I can't believe we don't have anyone else in the minors we can't come up and do better than an ERA of 6, or even 4.74.

Lol, maybe I'm just foolishly optimistic. Too bad both Bills & Beckett are both out lol. Guess in the big picture, it's not too bad if we are just worried about our #5 starter. If Ricky can continue to pitch like he has the past couple outings, I really like our chances, considering we've got Kersh/Greinke/Ryu.
