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
