Kyle Kendrick will step into Worley’s rotation spot beginning tonight versus the Cubs and the Phillies called up left-handed reliever Joe Savery to take his spot on the roster.
Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels understandably get all the attention, but Worley had picked up right where he left off last season with a 3.07 ERA and 45/15 K/BB ratio in 44 innings spread over seven starts. He’s thrown 189 total innings as a big leaguer, posting a 2.91 ERA and 176/65 K/BB ratio.
