VANCE WORLEY RUMORS & GOSSIP

The clock is ticking for Vanimal

Vance Worley probably doesn’t have much time left in the Pirates’ rotation. Between the rumors that the Pirates are interested in acquiring a starter and Gerrit Cole’s recovery from his lat problem, it’s hard to imagine Worley’s got more than a couple of starts left as a Pirate. Tonight, he’ll face off against Josh Beckett in Beckett’s first start since July 6th, as...

Worleymania

The Pirates kick off what might be their most important homestand of 2014 tonight against the Mets. Their next 10 games will be at PNC Park, and they’ll be against the Mets, Diamondbacks, and Phillies. I’d like to see seven wins, at least, from the Pirates on this homestand. Vance Worley makes his third Pirate start tonight. His first two starts have gone 13 1/3 innings, holding...

Pitcher Profile: Vance Worley Or Vance WAR-ly?

I know, I know.  Terrible title pun and Vance Worley isn't exactly the most exciting Pitcher Profile.  CALL UP ANDREW HEANEY ALREADY!  Just needed to get that out of my system... I thought about a Danny Duffy.  Maybe Daisuke Matsuzaka. Mostly because that would be an inning-long Pitcher Profile and I could play more Call of Duty.  He shoulda laid off the Steak "n...

Vance Worley joins the pitching staff

- The Pirates will send Vance Worley to the hill on Sunday afternoon in Miami, as they need another starter after Francisco Liriano‘s injury. With the addition of Worley, three-fifths of the current Pirates rotation will have made several starts in Triple-A Indy this year. And yet, all of a sudden they seem to be getting better starting pitching than they have all year. Will Worley...

Twins trade Worley to Pirates for cash

The Vance Worley Era is over in Minnesota. The Twins announced Tuesday that they traded Worley to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for cash. Specific terms were not released. Worley, a 26-year-old right-hander, entered spring training in a battle for the Twins' fifth spot in the starting rotation. But after a disastrous camp, Worley pitched himself out of that competition....

2013 Opening Day starter Worley optioned to minors

A brutal spring has earned Vance Worley a trip to the minor leagues. The Minnesota Twins announced Friday that Worley cleared waivers and was optioned to Triple-A Rochester. Worley, 26, was fighting for a roster spot this spring but posted a 13.50 ERA in four games (three starts). He allowed 16 earned runs in 10 2/3  innings. The Twins acquired Worley last offseason from Philadelphia...

Worley loses weight, hopes to gain job

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Something had to change for Vance Worley after 2013. So this offseason, he made a few big changes in his life. The biggest of them this winter wasn't baseball related, but marrying Maricel Vivas in Philadelphia in November. Though Maricel did most of the planning for their wedding, it was still a stressful time for the 26-year-old Worley. Aside from his nuptials...

Sneakers more than a hobby for Twins Worley

MINNEAPOLIS Now that the baseball season is nearly two months old, Vance Worley has settled into his surroundings as a member of the Twins. But when the right-hander moved to Minnesota this offseason, he had one item of business he had to adjust to. Where to put all of his shoes? Since he was a teenager, Worley has made a hobby out of collecting sneakers. A former basketball player...

Vance Worley delivers pitch with too much rosin (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Minnesota Twins pitcher Vance Worley's first pitch of the third inning was delivered with a bit too much rosin during Saturday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. As Worley delivered the first pitch to Nate McLouth, an unmistakable cloud of rosin came off the ball near the pitcher's mound. The cloud was so big and such...

Vance Worley a nice move by the Twins

After trading Denard Span to the Nationals earlier in the off season, it seemed rather odd that the Minnesota Twins would also trade his replacement, Ben Revere. However, the Twins improved their present rotation with Vance Worley in the deal and also received a decent prospect in Trevor May. With the myriad of problems the Twins had last season, the pitching was the largest...
