Pirates | Vance Worley dominant at home

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 21:03:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Vance Worley allowed one unearned run and six hits with two walks over 5 2/3 innings in a win against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, April 22. He also struck out five batters.

Fantasy Tip: While Worley ($3,300; 6.6% of cap) labored a bit in this one, he is still 2-0 with a 1.54 ERA in two home outings this season. In 2014, he was 5-2 with a 2.28 ERA in seven home assignments, so there is something about PNC Park that agrees with Worley. When he is on the bump at home, FantasyScore owners need to remember him.

Pirates | Vance Worley joining rotation

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 06:48:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Vance Worley is expected to start against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, April 11, in place of SP Charlie Morton (hip) who will begin the season on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Worley ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has had fleeting success at times throughout his career, including last season when he went 8-4 with a 2.85 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. However, he leaves a lot to be desired in the strikeout department and has averaged just 5.9 K/9 over the past two seasons. He is best left to NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. His start against the Bewers doesn't project favorably for FantasyScore contests, either.

Pirates | Set second-half rotation

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 08:18:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano will start Friday, July 18, in the first game of the second half, followed by Charlie Morton, Jeff Locke, Edinson Volquez and Vance Worley, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Gerrit Cole (lat) remains out of the rotation for at least another week, but he should be back sometime in August. Worley remains NL-only fodder for as long as he's taking Cole's spot.

Pirates | Francisco Liriano starting Sunday

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 14:37:05 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano (oblique) will start Sunday, July 13, against the Cincinnati Reds. SP Vance Worley will work out of the bullpen Saturday, July 12, and Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Liriano is the epitome of high-risk, high-reward. He is worth adding in all formats if you're looking for pitching. Worley's value obviously suffers, but with Gerrit Cole also injured, Worley could be worth holding in NL-only leagues.
