  1. Nick, it’s not that we think Worley is worse than the players you mentioned, but they want to keep him used to a starter’s role which he cannot get at the moment with the Phils. Blanton is getting paid a lot of money to be the 5th starter, so they are not going to move him out of the rotation. Moving Worley down just assures he prepares as a starter all season long. He can then also step in for the Phillies in a pinch.

  2. The cynic in me would suggest one reason Worley was sent down was because he doesn’t make a fraction as much money as Blanton, Baez, Romero or Kendrick, thus making him the odd man out from a financial standpoint. Still, as fresh had said, at least “Specs” will get in plenty of work with the Iron Pigs until he’s needed again with the big club.
