Worley Has Elbow Soreness

The last thing the Phillies need is an injury to one of their starting pitchers.

But Vance Worley (3-2, 3.07 ERA) did not make the team’s trip to Chicago this evening and will miss tomorrow night’s start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field because of soreness in his right elbow. Worley will be examined tomorrow in Philadelphia.

Left-hander Joe Savery reportedly is on his way to Chicago, and could replace Worley on the roster if it is decided he needs to be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Right-hander Kyle Kendrick will start tomorrow.

Worley said he has felt some discomfort in the elbow for about a month, but has been able to pitch through it.

“It’s something I can pitch on, but it’s just bothering me enough where I want another opinion on it,” he said.

Asked how concerned he is, he said, “I’m not worried. I just want to confirm what it is. That’s all.”
