Twins P Vance Worley traded to the Pirates for cash
The Minnesota Twins have traded starting pitcher Vance Worley to the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash, according to CBS Sports' Matt Snyder.
Worley had a down year in 2013, his first season with the Twins, posting a 7.21 ERA in ten starts before being sent down to triple-A by the club.
Before joining the Twins, Worley played three seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies, peaking in 2011 when he pitched 131.2 innings with a 3.01 ERA and came in third place in NL Rookie of the Year voting.
Worley will likely compete with Edison Volquez for the fifth spot in the Pirates rotation. VERDUCCI: 14 things to watch for in 2014, a season of change for baseball
