The Phillies have placed 24-year old righty starting pitcher Vance Worley on the 15-day disabled list due to a right elbow injury that will require season ending surgery. Worley pitched in 23 games (all starts) for the Phillies this year and he was 6-9 with a 4.20 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. The Phillies have called up 25-year old righty Tyler Cloyd to replace Worley in the starting rotation. This will be his first taste of the majors. Cloyd pitched in 26 games (all starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 15-1 with a 2.26 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. He has pitched in 135 games (92 starts) in his five years in the minors and he is 48-22 with a 3.27 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.
