by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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
(5/14/2015) 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
(5/9/2015) 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.


Pirates' Vance Worley earns quality start vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Pirates pitcher Vance Worley wasn't a factor in the decision Sunday, giving up just one earned run on four hits and one walk in six innings while striking out five in his team's 3-2 loss in 14 innings.

Worley pitched well for the third time in his last four starts, with the only damage coming on a solo home run by Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter in the fourth inning. That was enough to keep him from a win, as the Cardinals managed to hold the Pirates scoreless until a Jung Ho Kang ninth-inning home run tied the game.

"This was my first time [throwing to] Stewart for more than one batter, and we had a good talk before we went out to play catch," Worley said. "We had a good game plan. We knew that against this lineup, we had to mix it up and not be predictable."

Worley owns a 3.90 ERA and 23:10 K:BB ratio in 30 innings. He'll square off with the Cardinals again Saturday, this time at home.


Pirates pitcher Vance Worley drops another decision Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Pirates pitcher Vance Worley allowed four runs on nine hits in six innings of work in Pittsburgh's 4-0 loss to the Cubs Monday.

Worley's issues came in the third inning with two outs. After walking Dexter Fowler, Worley allowed a single to Jorge Soler to put two on for Anthony Rizzo, who double to center field, bringing home a run. Kris Bryant then ripped an RBI single to center to score two more runs.

Then in the fifth, Bryant came through again with a single to center to bring home another run.

"After the two-out walk, Vance wasn't able to execute pitches he’s been able to execute throughout the young season so far," manager Clint Hurdle said per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "All in all, It's not a bad outing by any means."

Worley, now 2-2, ballooned his ERA to 4.50. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Cardinals.


Pirates pitcher Vance Worley picks up second win Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Pirates pitcher Vance Worley allowed one run, none earned, on six hits in 5 2/3 innings of work in Pittsburgh's 4-3 win over the Cubs Wednesday.

"I kept the runs off the board and I had good defense working behind me," Worley said after the game, per MLB.com. "Me and Francisco Cervelli have been getting on the right page with each other and going right after guys."

Worley worked efficiently throughout his start, with only one blemish in the fourth inning. After allowing a Kris Bryant double to lead off the inning, he was able to advance to third on a throwing error. Then Starlin Castro grounded out to third, but allowed Bryant to score.

"He is a tough, tough guy, and he's got a lot of fight and a lot of competitive spirit," manager Clint Hurdle said. "And he doesn't back down and he doesn't back away."

Worley, now 2-1 on the year, boasts a 4.00 ERA in 18 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Monday against the Cubs again.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

"They were aggressive up there and I made sure I kept them more off balance," Worley said, reports the Boston Herald. "And when they started looking to hit the pitches I was throwing, I went back to what I used to do."

Over the six innings, Worley threw 93 pitches and gave up two runs and six hits. He walked four batters (two intentional) and struck out six to earn his first win of season. Worley is now 1-1 with a 5.84 ERA.

"We're all playing as hard as we can out there," Worley said. "We know it's early. Spring training was long but we've got some new guys here, we're all still learning each other and I think as the season progresses we'll only get better."

His next expected start will be Thursday against the Cubs.
