      Pirates' Vance Worley: Claimed off waivers Tuesday

      Worley was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Tuesday. In 110 innings with the Pirates during 2014, Worley was masterful, recording a 2.85 ERA and 1.29 WHIP to go along with a 79:22 K:BB. 2015 was...a different story. Worley began the season in the starting rotation due to an injury to Charlie Morton, but found his way onto Triple-A Indianapolis midway through the season. He could be an interesting name to follow as the Orioles only had one pitcher throw 100+ innings and post an ERA under 4.00 in 2015, but no official announcement regarding his usage will come until later in the season.

      Vance Worley up as Pirates DFA fellow P Radhames Liz

      Pirates reliever Radhames Liz has been designated for assignment so veteran pitcher Vance Worley can be added to the roster, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Liz has just three appearances since his promotion on Sept. 1 and has allowed four runs on six hits in six innings. Worley was demoted to Triple-A Indianapolis in mid-August after compiling a 4-5 mark and 3.78 ERA as both a starter and reliever. But he boasts a fine 2.38 ERA in the minors, which has motivated his promotion.

      Pirates' Vance Worley struggles in emergency start on Saturday

      Thrown into the start at the last minute, Pirates right-hander Vance Worley gave up five runs (four earned) on seven hits over four innings on Saturday. Worley needed 80 pitches to get through the fourth, as he walked one and struck out four in the 8-5 loss to the Brewers. Worley (3-5) was given an early 3-0 lead in the first inning, but he was unable to hang on to it. He gave up a pair of runs in the second and one in the third before Jonathan Lucroy took him deep for a two-run home run in the fourth. This was Worley's first start in roughly two months, but he had given up runs in three of his last four relief appearances. His ERA rose to 3.71 following Saturday's outing. "We gave Worley a yell 25 minutes before game time, and he poured everything he had into the outing," manager Clint Hurdle said following the game, per "He battled. He's a tough man. He was all-in with the effort, and that's one of the many things we like about him."

Worley, who entered in the first inning after Morton allowed nine runs in two-thirds innings, tossed 4 1/3 scoreless innings in relief. He allowed just two hits and one walk, while striking out five. Worley has been pretty effective since moving into a relief role in mid-May. He is 0-1 with a 1.26 ERA in six relief outings. He has 12 strikeouts and issued just one walk on 14 1/3 relief innings.
