Vance Worley Injury: Phillies Pitcher Feels No Pain In Big League Return

Not much good comes out of collecting a third straight loss, however, the Philadelphia Phillies were able to send starting pitcher Vance Worley to the mound Monday for the first time in 24 days. The overall result was a 4-3 loss, but Worley was able to toss 80 pitches in four innings and suffer no-ill effects in the outing.

"No tightness or anything," Worley said.

Worley, who will be pitching with a bone chip in his elbow for the remainder of the season, was a bit erratic in the first inning but bounced-back nicely and was able to last longer than his 75-pitch count placed on him.

"It's nice knowing that there's nothing in there that's going to bother me," Worley said. "I've just got to go out there and pitch."

The Phillies and Dodgers continue their four-game series Tuesday (7:05 p.m. ET on Comcast Sports Network), while Worley is expected to return to the five-man rotation.

Phillies Vs. Dodgers, Game 2: Cliff Lee Searches (Still) For First Win Of Season

What would be more surprising than the Philadelphia Phillies at the .500 and in the basement of the National League East Division standings in early June? How about their left-handed ace Cliff Lee still searching for his first win of the season despite having an ERA of 3.00?

Lee (0-2) will try to snap that streak Tuesday (7:05 p.m. ET on Comcast Sports Network) against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 2 of the four at Citizen Bank Park. The lefty will oppose LA's Chad Billingsley (2-4, 4.09 ERA), who's winless in his last nine starts.

The Phillies (28-28) are losers of three straight and are in last place of the NL East Division standings. The good news is, the Phils are just four games back of the first-place Washington Nationals.
