Pitcher Vance Worley won his arbitration case against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. The announcement came on Tuesday afternoon with Jon Heyman reporting the results first. The Pirates won their case against second baseman Neil Walker on Friday and Pedro Alvarez still needs to go to his arbitration hearing. Worley will make $2.45M in 2015, after making $527,500 last year. He qualified for super-two this off-season, which means he will go to arbitration three more times before free agency. The Pirates losing offer to Worley was $2M.
Worley had a 2.85 ERA in 110.2 innings in 2014, making 17 starts and one relief appearance. That was after posting a 7.21 ERA in ten starts for the Minnesota Twins last year. The Pirates purchased his contract from the Twins at the end of Spring Training and he made seven starts in AAA before joining the big league club.
