Pirates place pitcher Vance Worley on waivers

Pirates' Vance Worley struggles in emergency start on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/18/15) Thrown into the start at the last minute, Pirates right-hander Vance Worley gave up five runs (four earned) on seven hits over four innings on Saturday. Worley needed 80 pitches to get through the fourth, as he walked one and struck out four in the 8-5 loss to the Brewers.
Worley (3-5) was given an early 3-0 lead in the first inning, but he was unable to hang on to it. He gave up a pair of runs in the second and one in the third before Jonathan Lucroy took him deep for a two-run home run in the fourth.
This was Worley's first start in roughly two months, but he had given up runs in three of his last four relief appearances. His ERA rose to 3.71 following Saturday's outing.
"We gave Worley a yell 25 minutes before game time, and he poured everything he had into the outing," manager Clint Hurdle said following the game, per MLB.com. "He battled. He's a tough man. He was all-in with the effort, and that's one of the many things we like about him."
Pirates' Vance Worley now starting on Saturday vs. Brewers
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/18/15) Pirates right-hander Vance Worley has been tabbed to make an emergency start on Saturday against the Brewers, after scheduled starter Francisco Liriano was scratched with neck tightness. Worley has not started a game for the Pirates since May 14, as he has been pitching out of the bullpen for most of this season.
|2014 summary: Harkening back to his "Vanimal" days as a surprise rookie standout for the Phillies in 2011, Vance Worley rediscovered himself in his first year in Pittsburgh, as so many have under pitching coach Ray Searage. He rediscovered his mechanics after an injury-plagued year, and the result wasn't just a 2.85 ERA but also more Head-to-Head points per game than Scott Kazmir, Alex Cobb and Homer Bailey.|
Playing time status: Of course, with all of Searage's successes and the new wave of young pitchers gearing up for the majors, Worley isn't assured a rotation spot. He is the favorite going in, though, with Jeff Locke being his primary competition.
2015 outlook: Worley would probably be more hyped as a sleeper if the fifth spot was 100 percent his. He's been a success in the past and seems to have a clear explanation for the turnaround. Then again, starting pitcher is so deep these days that he may just be excess in mixed leagues, so you can pass him up for now in those formats.
