Vance Worley to Start Friday

29 Apr

It’s pretty hard to believe that the Phillies have this
many players on the Disabled List in April. It’s seven, but who’s really
counting?

With the inflammation in his elbow the Phillies placed Joe Blanton on the DL retroactive to
the 24th of April.   Blanton,
who was coming off two good starts, was scheduled to start on Friday night
against the Mets, but instead Phillies pitching prospect Vance Worley will make the start.

Worley is quickly establishing himself as the Phillies
top pitching prospect, appearing in five games with the Phillies in 2010 and
posting a 1.38 ERA.  His best start came
on October came on October 2ndth last season when Vance allowed just
one hit, and pitched five innings in just his second career start against the
Atlanta Braves.

Kyle Kendrick was not considered an option to start because
the Phillies are still unsure if Roy Oswalt will be able to make his next start
after leaving the team to be with his family in Mississippi in the wake of the
wild tornados that have ravaged the south over the last few days.

As much as we all know the Mets are a lame club, they
have been winning a lot of games recently. 
Before the Nationals snapped their win streak yesterday the Mets had won six straight games. 

Side
Notes –

Derek
Lowe –
The Braves pitcher was pulled over, and arrested for suspicion of
driving under the influence of alcohol last night.  He completed a field sobriety test, but
refused to take a breathalyzer test.  It’s
unknown if he’ll make his next start. 
Nice one.

Brown
Domonic
Brown has homered twice in just two games in his rehab in Clearwater.  Dom is 2-for-4 with three RBIs with the
Threshers.
