Per CNN Philly and Todd Zolecki. The Phillies optioned RHP Vance Worley to Lehigh Valley following today's game against the Nationals. This came one day after Worley allowed thirteen hits and eight runs (five earned) in only three innings. The move is intended to allow Worley to gain endurance and work on a secondary pitch. A corresponding roster move will be announced tomorrow.
With Worley back in Lehigh, the Phillies have a couple of options for a fifth starter. They could go with spot starts from Kyle Kendrick out of the bullpen or they could use the off days to go without a fifth starter until June 8 against the Dodgers.
