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.
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.
Hurdle: Pirates RHP Vance Worley now full-time reliever
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(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.
Pirates skipping Vance Worley in rotation this week
|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.
|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.
