Well, that didn’t take long. One night after being called up and then immediately pressed into spot duty because of Jamie Moyer’s injury, RHP Drew Carpenter has been sent back to AAA-Lehigh Valley.
To replace him, the Phillies have called up RHP Vance Worley from AA-Reading. Also today, Worley was the Phillies Minor League Pitcher of the Week.
The 22 year old is 9-4 with a 3.70 ERA so far this season.
It’s unclear whether the Phillies view Worley as a potential answer to their rotation issues, if they’re showcasing him for a pending trade, or if Ruben Amaro would rather go with a revolving door of rookies instead of going out and acquiring a Roy Oswalt or Dan Haren.
10 days until the Trade Deadline…
