VANCE WORLEY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Veteran relievers make their push for Opening Day roster spots

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Vance Worley smiled when he answered, something he has done a great deal this spring, despite the circumstances. The big right-hander could only chuckle at the notion that anyone in his position, a nonroster invitee fighting for a spot on a team that has few spots open, could be anything […]

Vance Worley < 500

Honestly, Vance Worley is one of the pitchers that I found the most interesting as last year wore on, and he’s probably going to get the shortest post in this whole series. The reason is that Jeff Sullivan at FanGraphs more or less did my work for me here, with his post from late last summer entitled “Return of the Most Deceptive Pitcher in Basball” about Worley. There is a...

FanGraphs on Vance Worley and pitching inside

One of my favorite parts about the Pirates making themselves relevant these last two years is that my favorite writers and analysts pay MUCH more attention to the Bucs than they used to. There were two good FanGraphs pieces about the Bucs earlier this week and I’d like to link them here in case you missed them. First, Jeff Sullivan on Vance Worley, his deceptiveness, and how he...

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...

Pirates acquire Vance Worley, presumably for depth

The Pirates picked up Vance Worley from the Twins today in exchange for some cash. Worley was outrighted to the minors by the Twins a few days ago, and it's not hard to see why when you look at his 2013 numbers. It wasn't all that long ago that Worley was a semi-interested young pitcher for the Phillies and his velocity numbers don't seem to be terribly down, so I suppose it's possible...

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. He was...

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 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...
