VANCE WORLEY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Vance Worley makes the rotation after all

Turns out all the confusion / mild frustration about Vance Worley not making the rotation is all for naught, as he will take the place of Charlie Morton – to start the season, at least. Charlie Morton (hip) is headed to DL. Vance Worley will take place in rotation, per Hurdle — Travis Sawchik (@Sawchik_Trib) April 4, 2015 Morton was simply awful today in the final spring training...

News and notes: Worley wins, Draft position

Vance Worley became the first Pirate since Ross Ohlendorf to defeat the club in a salary arbitration hearing, so he will earn $2.45 million instead of $2 million this year. Good for him, but let’s hope that’s where the similarities end between Vance and Ross. As far as I know, Vance didn’t spend the winter as an intern in Washington, so that’s a good start. He also didn...

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.

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 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...
