Vance Worley DFA’d to make room for Joe Blanton

The Pirates just tweeted that it will be Vance Worley and not Deolis Guerra that will be designated for assignment to make room for Joe Blanton tonight. Since I spent most of my time assuming the Pirates were going to use Blanton in the Guerra role and that Guerra was the most likely to  be DFA to make room for Blanton, let’s take a few seconds and consider what’s going on with...

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...

Week 19 MLB Waiver Wire:Vance Worley a worthy add

In this week’s edition of the Weekly Waiver Wire, we have a speedster on the base paths, a forgotten former Phillie, a new kid on the block, a former All-Star, and a nobody turned somebody. Week 19 MLB Waiver Wire players to add: Vance Worley (SP,PIT,32% owned): Ratios are gold these days and Vance has your back in that category. He has posted a great 2.43 ERA, not to mention 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...

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...
