Twins' Vance Worley placed on waivers

As clubs begin to thin out their rosters, some people that may have been thought to be incumbents simply aren’t making the cut.

Vance Worley falls into this category. Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the right handed pitcher has been placed on waivers Wednesday, which makes him available to other teams up until Friday afternoon. The Twins made the move to free up space on their 40-man roster.

Worley was traded from the Phillies to Minnesota in exchange for Ben Revere and did not fare well in his first year with the Twins. Last season, the “Vanimal” made only 10 appearances with the club, earning a 1-5 record with an abysmal 7.21 ERA. He had been in the mix to join the rotation this season, but those chances went out the window with his poor spring. In three starts, four games total, Worley has put up a 13.50 ERA in only 10.1 innings.
