Vance Worley allowed two runs over five innings in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

Worley gave up just two hits on the afternoon, but his Marlins teammates couldn't muster enough offense to keep the right-hander from suffering the loss. Still, it was a step forward from Worley's subpar debut against the Dodgers his last time out, lowering his ERA from 6.75 to 5.00. The 29-year-old will continue to search for his first win of the season Thursday when he faces the Diamondbacks.

Vance Worley yielded three runs on six hits over four innings in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Worley surrendered two of the three runs on his line in the first inning, when he coughed up a two-run double to Adrian Gonzalez. Joc Pederson would polish off the scoring on his line with a solo home run in the fourth inning. For the afternoon as a whole, the 29-year-old right-hander struck out just two while walking one. This was Worley's first start with the Marlins since they signed him to a minor league contract on April 2. He is next scheduled to start at home against the Angels. There is little fantasy intrigue, here, as Worley had been pitching to a 4.43 ERA in eight starts down at Triple-A New Orleans prior to being called up for Sunday's start.

Marlins recalled RHP Vance Worley from Triple-A New Orleans.

He's getting the start Sunday against the Dodgers. The 29-year-old journeyman hasn't been overly impressive in the minors this year, contributing a 2-5 record with a 4.43 ERA in eight starts for New Orleans. The Vanimal has compiled a 3.89 ERA in 85 big league starts.
May 20 - 9:21 PM

Vance Worley is expected to be recalled from Triple-A New Orleans to start for the Marlins on Sunday.

Nothing has been made official yet, but the expectation is that Odrisamer Despaigne will be optioned out to create the roster spot. Worley owns a 4.43 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 22/11 K/BB ratio over 44 2/3 innings at Triple-A this season. He can be avoided for streaming purposes.
May 20 - 3:48 PM

Marlins signed RHP Vance Worley to a minor league contract.

Worley will join the Triple-A New Orleans rotation. However, given the lack of quality arms the Marlins have in their big league rotation, there would seem to be a good chance he could get a shot to start in the majors at some point. Worley was released by the Nationals last week after failing to win a long relief role.
Apr 2 - 10:00 AM

Nationals released RHP Vance Worley.

Worley posted a 4.80 ERA and 6/6 K/BB ratio over 18 innings this spring in his bid to be the Nats' long man, but it looks like that job could go to Jeremy Guthrie. The veteran right-hander will try to latch on elsewhere.
Mar 29 - 9:07 AM

Nationals signed RHP Vance Worley to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Worley finally has a new home after being non-tendered by the Orioles this offseason. The deal comes with a $1 million base salary if he makes the big league roster with another $1.65 million available in incentives. Worley fared reasonably well as a long reliever/spot-starter last year, logging a 3.53 ERA over 35 outings. The right-hander should occupy a similar role in Washington. This will be Worley's fifth team in the last six seasons.
Jan 28 - 6:30 PM

Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports that the Orioles have interest in re-signing free agent right-hander Vance Worley.

Kubatko notes that after bringing back Mark Trumbo, the club may not be shopping at the high end of the free agent pitching market, which would rule out Jason Hammel. Worley was non-tendered by the O's in December rather than giving him a raise in his final year of arbitration. He was projected by to earn $3.3 million in arbitration.

Orioles non-tendered RHP Vance Worley.

The O's have opted not to give "Vanimal" a raise in his final year of arbitration eligibility after he posted a 3.53 ERA over 35 appearances -- four starts -- last season. He's now a free agent.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that Vance Worley will probably be skipped over in the rotation against the Blue Jays this weekend.

Per Showalter, Worley should be available out of the bullpen for the key weekend series between the two AL East contenders. Worley should feel comfortable enough there -- the 29-year-old right-hander has actually mostly pitched out of the pen this season, with 22 relief appearances compared to just four starts. Depending on how the Orioles want to play this, he could return to a starting role next week.

Vance Worley took a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Indians, allowing two runs on five hits over seven innings.

Worley struck out three and walked three on the afternoon. Both runs on his line scored in the fourth, with Tyler Naquin burning him for an RBI double and Roberto Perez lofting a sacrifice fly. While the 28-year-old right-hander's 1.35 WHIP is cause for some concern, his 3.09 ERA looks shiny enough. A difficult road showdown with the Blue Jays shows next on his schedule.

Vance Worley will start on Sunday against the Indians.

Worley allowed three runs over 4 1/3 innings in a spot start Tuesday against the Yankees, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he was pleased with how the righty pitched. The veteran righty holds a 5.40 ERA in three starts and a 2.23 mark in 18 relief appearances this season.

Vance Worley allowed three runs over 4 1/3 innings in a spot start Tuesday against the Yankees.

Making just his third start of the year, Worley gave up three hits, including a two-run home run, while walking four. He's been pretty good in relief for the O's this year, owning a 3.16 ERA overall in 51 1/3 innings of work, and it's likely that he'll return to that role following Tuesday's spot start.

Vance Worley will start for the Orioles on Tuesday against the Yankees.

Worley has been working as the long man out of the O's bullpen, most recently working 1 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rays. Since he isn't fully stretched out, it's hard to imagine him working longer than five innings on Tuesday, making him an even more unappealing fantasy option than he already is.
