Good News/Bad News for Worley

23 May

The good news first?

Vance Worley found out that he does not need Tommy John surgery, after a visit to Dr. James Andrews*.

The bad news is that he will have to pitch with bone chips in his elbow for the rest of the season.

Vance hasn’t even played catch in a week, so he’s not going to be back very soon.  He’s going to have to take a page from Hamels’ book from last year, and find a way to pitch through the pain.

“I don’t know how bad his was, but he basically told me it’s not going to feel good and you’ve just got to go,” Worley said.

He’s done pretty well so far going 3-2 with a 3.07 ERA in seven starts.

Keep up with me on Facebook, and Twitter, and soon my App will be available in the iTunes store.

*Andrews is one of the most recognizable orthopedic surgeons in the sports world and performs most Major Leaguers’ Tommy John surgeries.
