The Pittsburgh Pirates have sent right-handed pitcher Vance Worley outright to Indianapolis. He was designated for assignment last week when they added Joe Blanton to the active roster. Worley will get a chance to get in some innings for Indianapolis, probably seeing time in the starting role depending on how long it will take for him to get stretched out for extended work. This will allow the Pirates to call him back up in September when the rosters expand for extra pitching depth. He will need to be added to the 40-man roster again if they do call him up.

  1. Glad Pirates got him back. Definitely a contender for 5th SP next season while JT & TG wait for the call to join the rotation.

    • I didn’t think the salary was crippling. And honestly, gauging what he might earn in arbitration next season isn’t too bad either. A few years of control…I can understand contenders not biting, but some of the garbage teams with bad pitching? Guess it’s the time of year where everyone has the beer goggles on with their system.

      Or he just sucks and I’m over rating him. I’ll take it though.
