2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Acquired from the Twins for cash in March of 2014, Worley exceeded all expectations with a surprising season last year. The right-hander doesn't throw hard (89.5 mph fastball avg) but exhibits pinpoint control (1.8 BB/9). In 110.2 innings, Worley (8-4) crafted a 2.85 ERA (3.44 FIP) and 1.21 WHIP. He even threw eight shutout innings against Milwaukee after being skipped in the rotation in September. While it might be unreasonable to expect another stellar performance from Worley in 2015, he will likely battle for a rotation spot. Fantasy owners have enjoyed success taking chances on Pittsburgh pitching in recent years and Worley might once again help owners as an endgame pickup.

2014

Worley had a disappointing first season with Minnesota, as he was named the team's Opening Day starter but was just 1-5 with a 7.21 ERA in his first 10 starts. He was then demoted to Triple-A, where he had a 3.88 ERA but just a 5.3 K/9 before he started having shoulder issues in July, which ended his year. Despite his decline, it was just 2011 when Worley finished third in the National League Rookie of the Year voting, and he had a strikeout rate of 7.7 K/9 in the majors with the Phillies. If healthy, he could quickly rebound and contend for a spot in the Minnesota rotation. However, he'll need to improve his control for a rebound to materialize.

2013

Worley pitched through most of last season with bone chips in his pitching elbow. He finished with an ERA more than a point higher than in 2011. While some of his struggles are likely attributable to his elbow, Worley was also victim of a .346 BABIP. His strikeout rate dipped a little last season, but remained strong, and his walk rate was virtually unchanged from the year prior. Worley isn't an overpowering pitcher but he uses his two-seam fastball effectively to get strikeouts. He underwent elbow surgery in September and is expected to be fully healthy for spring training. We expect that he'll bounce back a bit in 2013, and that will come with the opportunity to pitch half of his games in Minnesota after being traded to the Twins in December.

2012

Worley finished third in the National League Rookie of the Year voting after putting together an excellent 2011 season. He works in the low-90s with his fastball and has a solid slider, but it was a two-seam fastball that catcher Brian Schneider encouraged Worley to use that really helped him put away hitters last season. The league will certainly make adjustments to Worley now that there is an abundance of tape so the key will be for the young starter to also make adjustments to remain effective. He'll open the year in the back of the Phillies' rotation and will look to build on his early success.

2011

Worley's numbers in the minors don't stand out, but they have been solid. He works in the low-90s with his fastball and has a solid curveball and a decent changeup. His strikeout rate and walk rate are unspectacular but decent enough to be effective. Worley got an opportunity to pitch in the majors last year thanks to some late-season struggles from Kyle Kendrick. Worley made an impression on manager Charlie Manuel and will get a chance to compete for the fifth starter's job with Kendrick this spring. Given his limited experience above Triple-A, it seems likely that Worley will enter this season back in the minors unless he has a huge spring.

2009

Worley, a third round pick out of Long Beach State in 2008, throws a low-90s fastball that can touch 96 mph on the radar gun. His changeup is a plus pitch and he also has a solid slider and curve ball. A strong year at Double-A will put him into contention for a rotation spot next spring.
