Pirates' Vance Worley putting up strong numbers as a reliever
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/22/15) Pirates reliever Vance Worley stepped up in a big way Sunday for Pittsburgh after starting pitcher Charlie Morton couldn't make it out of the first inning during a 9-2 loss to the Nationals.
Worley, who entered in the first inning after Morton allowed nine runs in two-thirds innings, tossed 4 1/3 scoreless innings in relief. He allowed just two hits and one walk, while striking out five.
Worley has been pretty effective since moving into a relief role in mid-May. He is 0-1 with a 1.26 ERA in six relief outings. He has 12 strikeouts and issued just one walk on 14 1/3 relief innings.

|(5/22/15) Clint Hurdle has announced that the impending return to the mound of Charlie Morton has Pirates right-hander Vance Worley banished to the bullpen "for now."
Worley did not earn his rotation spot, giving up 49 hits in 41 innings and compiling a 4.17 ERA. He has allowed 11 runs on 30 hits in his last 20 innings pitched.

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) With a pair of off-days scheduled this week, the Pirates will skip Vance Worley's turn in the rotation, MLB.com reports.
Francisco Liriano and Jeff Locke will square off with the Twins during a two-game series Tuesday and Wednesday before the team hosts the Mets for a three-game series this weekend. Worley is 2-3 with a 4.38 ERA and 23:14 K:BB ratio in 39 innings.
Pirates P Vance Worley fails to record a strikeout in loss
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Pirates pitcher Vance Worley allowed three runs — one earned — during Thursday afternoon's 4-2 loss to the Phillies.
Worley went only four innings and two of the runs allowed were due to errors. However, he tossed 81 pitches over those four innings while striking out zero. He gave up eight hits and one walk.
Worley has had a tough time striking out batters of late as this is his second consecutive start without a strikeout. He now holds a 4.38 ERA.
His next start is projected for May 20 against the Twins.
One bad inning spoils night for Pirates starter Vance Worley
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) If Pirates starter Vance Worley had pitched as effectively Saturday night against St. Louis that he had in his previous four starts, he might be walking around with a 3-2 record.
Instead, he was saddled with a no-decision, courtesy of five runs on nine hits in five innings. He walked three and struck out none.
Worley was fine for three shutout innings, during which he faced just 10 batters. But he was crushed the second time around the lineup. He retired just one of six batters to start the fourth, giving up five hits, including back-to-back doubles to Jason Heyward and Yadier Molina that scored four.
He recovered to retire the Cardinals without incident in the fifth and his team rebounded to win, but his ERA shot up to 4.63. Worley will try again Thursday in Philadelphia.
|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.
