VANCE WORLEY RUMORS & GOSSIP

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 Sensational in 1-0 Victory

Whether or not Charlie Morton will be able to pitch again this season remains to be seen. Even if he is, Vance Worley might have just made the decision easy for Clint Hurdle on who to put in the rotation. Worley was sensational, throwing eight scoreless, four hit, five strikeout, and zero walk innings. Worley threw a mere 82 pitches, 63 for strikes, and was taken out solely for the...

Looking at Why Charlie Morton is Replacing Vance Worley in the Rotation

Yesterday the Pittsburgh Pirates announced that Charlie Morton will start Tuesday night against the Red Sox, replacing Vance Worley who was originally scheduled to make the start. Morton has not pitched since August 15th against the Nationals, when he lasted only three innings and gave up five runs. Since that start, Morton has been on the disabled list, attempting to ease the pain...

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...

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...
