Vance Worley earned a three-inning save Monday night against the Mets.

Worley scattered four hits and a walk over three scoreless frames to finish off a 13-1 blowout win for Miami. It was the second career save for Worley, who's been used as both a starter and reliever in 2017.
Sep 18 - 10:38 PM

Vance Worley allowed eight runs -- seven earned -- on eight hits over 1 1/3 innings in a forgettable loss to the Phillies on Thursday.

Worley allowed two runs in the first inning, a small victory in hindsight. The wheels really came off in the second, when the Phils banged out three homers among their seven runs, not all of which were charged to Worley. The start was a spot start and likely the last for the 29-year-old, at least while the Marlins have any hopes of whiffing the postseason. Worley now owns a 7.39 ERA and 1.79 WHIP in 22 appearances this season.

Vance Worley will start for the Marlins on Thursday night against the Phillies.

Jose Urena had been listed as Miami's starter, but he's getting bumped back to Friday's series opener against the Brewers. Worley's last appearance was out of the bullpen and he holds a rough 6.58 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 65 2/3 total innings this season.
Sep 14 - 3:24 PM

Vance Worley didn’t have it Tuesday in the nation’s capital, yielding five runs over 4 1/3 innings of work.

Worley faced one over the minimum through a scoreless first two frames, but the wheels came off after that. He wound up walking three on the night with just two strikeouts and gave up a whopping nine base hits. Worley has really struggled in three of his last four starts and would probably be out of the rotation already if the Marlins had some other options. He’s lined up to face the Phillies on Sunday.
Aug 29 - 11:24 PM

Vance Worley was pounded for eight runs in four innings by the Phillies on Thursday.

The Marlins came back to win anyway, but Worley's rotation status is probably pretty iffy at the moment. He surrendered nine hits, including a pair of homers to the 22 batters he faced. He has a 5.04 ERA in six starts since rejoining the rotation at the end of last month.
Aug 24 - 5:34 PM

Vance Worley allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Mets on Saturday.

Worley gave up just three hits and walked two, but the Marlins could muster only one run against Mets starter Rafael Montero and company. The loss was the third of the year for the right-hander but his first since May 27. He's got a 4.82 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 56 innings. Worley will look to get back in the win column Friday against the Padres.
Aug 19 - 11:21 PM

Vance Worley delivered another strong start in Tuesday's victory over the Nationals, allowing one run on six hits over his six innings.

The veteran right-hander walked three and struck out two in the ballgame. The only blemish on his night came on an RBI ground out by Bryce Harper in the third inning. He'll look to further improve upon his 4.82 ERA and 1.41 WHIP when he does battle against the Rockies on Sunday.
Aug 8 - 10:22 PM

Vance Worley twirled seven shutout innings to beat the Nationals 7-0 on Wednesday.

He gave up just two base hits -- both singles -- and didn't issue any walks while notching three strikeouts. He completely shut down one of the best offenses in the majors. Worley has served as a swing man for the Marlins this year, making six starts and eight relief appearances. He has a 1-2 record with a 5.31 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 40 2/3 innings.
Aug 3 - 12:05 AM

Vance Worley gave up three runs in four innings Friday in a no-decision against the Reds.

All three runs scored in the first inning, the big blow of which was a two-run homer off the bat of Adam Duvall. Worley struck out three and walked a pair and was pulled after throwing 70 pitches. The veteran right-hander got a chance in the rotation following Tom Koehler’s demotion, but it’s unclear if he’ll receive an extended opportunity. There’s not much fantasy upside here regardless.
Jul 28 - 11:17 PM

Vance Worley is a candidate to start for the Marlins on Saturday versus the Giants.

The Marlins need a starter after they designated Jeff Locke for assignment. Chris O’Grady is another option, but it figures to be Worley as long as he's not needed in relief Friday. Worley holds a 6.31 ERA over 10 appearances -- four starts -- for Miami this season.
Jul 7 - 12:13 PM

Vance Worley surrendered five earned runs over just 3 2/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

It was an ugly outing, but the Marlins offense put up six runs and Miami went on to win the game 6-5. Worley allowed six hits and issued three walks. He has a 6.59 ERA in three starts and one relief appearance.
Jun 4 - 5:14 PM

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.
May 27 - 9:32 PM

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.
May 21 - 7:16 PM

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.
