VANCE WORLEY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Worley, Walker power Pirates to a 3-2 victory against the Cincinnati Reds

The Vanimal is back. Well, at least for one day, he's back. Vance Worley shook off three bad starts in a row with a near-dominant performance Saturday and pitched the Pirates to a 3-2 win against the Cincinnati Reds before a crowd of 38,023 at PNC Park. It was the Pirates' fourth win in a row and seventh in their past nine games. It was similar to the other wins in that...

Walker, Worley lead surging Pirates past Reds 3-2

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Neil Walker hit a three-run homer in the first inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates made it hold up behind starter Vance Worley, beating the Cincinnati Reds 3-2 on Saturday for their fourth straight victory. Walker's 18th home run put the Pirates ahead 3-0 against Alfredo Simon four batters into the game. Pittsburgh's winning streak matches its longest of...

Vance Worley looks to assure Pirates of series win over Reds

The Pirates are in a funny position against the Reds this afternoon, because I think they’re clearly a better team than the Reds right now and am kind of half-hoping that they’ll sweep Cincinnati this weekend, but they’re clearly under a bit of added pressure today because Johnny Cueto is looming tomorrow afternoon. Vance Worley will be on the mound for the Pirates today, and...

Brewers 4, Pirates 3

The Pirates couldn’t turn what was already a good weekend into a great one, as a couple of homers weren’t enough to sweep the Brewers. I wouldn’t say it was “must-sweep” to stay in the division race, but the difference between a five game deficit and a three game deficit seems pretty big with only about a month to go. Still, they’ll go head to head with Milwaukee three...

This is it (Part 3)

These two wins to open the series against the Brewers have been nice. They’ve re-established the Pirates as legitimate wild card contenders, and served as a reminder that the Pirates have an offense to be reckoned with when it’s functioning at full capacity. What these wins have not done, quite yet, is re-establish the Pirates as legitimate NL Central contenders. That can’t...

Worley, Padres bullpen shackle Padres

The lack of two offensive mainstays, one the reigning Most Valuable Player, generally does not coincide with a third consecutive victory that lifts a team further above .500 than it has been all season. With continued strong pitching, the Pirates made it work. Vance Worley did the honors Friday night as the Pirates beat the San Diego Padres, 2-1, at PNC Park. They improved their...

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...

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...
