The Pittsburgh Pirates have shifted Vance Worley from a starter to the bullpen because of the return of Charlie Morton. Worley needs to be let go from any fantasy team he is on.

Fantasy Impact: Vance Worley was a decent fantasy pitcher this season, but he was a much better fantasy option in 2014. I would get rid of Worley because you can find a better pitcher to take over in his starting position.

The Pittsburgh Pirates lost a tough game to the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday afternoon. The Pirates dropped the final two games of the series after winning the first two. Vance Worley gave up three runs in only four innings of work.

Fantasy Impact: Vance Worley gave up three runs in four innings of work. Worley's ERA has increased to 4.38, which is the highest among Pirate starters. I do not recommend trying to get Worley from the waiver wire because his production just isn't where it was just a season ago.

The Pittsburgh Pirates lost their 3rd straight extra inning game against the Cardinals on Sunday. Vance Worley only allowed 1 earned run on the day, and he recorded 5 strikeouts. The Pirates pitching staff looked extremely solid on Sunday, but our offense couldn't produce runs.

Fantasy Impact: Vance Worley had another solid outing, which is making his fantasy value rise. Many people don't have Worley on their fantasy roster, but I think you need to have him on your roster.

Vance Worley went 5 and 2/3 innings and struck out 5. Worley did allow a run to score, but it was not an earned run.

Fantasy Impact: Vance Worley leads the Pirates, along with Jeff Locke, with two wins on the season. The Pirates starting pitchers look solid as of now. The reason the Pirates are losing close games is because of the bullpen. Stay away from the bullpen, but flock towards the starters.

Vance Worley threw 6 innings and amassed 6 strikeout, while allowing 2 earned runs. Worley was outstanding on the mound for the Pirates. He got ahead in counts and got a plethora of ground balls, which kept his pitch count down.

Fantasy Impact: Vance Worley was a great pick in any fantasy league, especially in any DFS league because his price tag was extremely low. Worley needs to be on your roster because he is not a big name player, but he will provide your team with production every single start.

Vance Worley will begin the season as the 5th starter for the Pirates because of the injury of Charlie Morton. Vance Worley will be given Morton's starts. Worley also threw 1 scoreless inning on Saturday against Philly.

Fantasy Impact: Vance Worley will be an interesting asset to any fantasy team because he is eligible to pitch in the bullpen and as a starter. Worley will get plenty of starts this season, and he will be a great fantasy baseball player like he was last season.

Vance Worley pitched for the first time since getting the news that he would start the season in the bullpen for the Pirates. Worley pitched 3 innings, gave up 3 hits, and allowed 1 earned run.

Fantasy Impact: Vance Worley is going to be a valuable asset to any fantasy team because he will be a relief pitcher and a starting pitcher. He will begin the season in the bullpen, but he will get some starts in 2015 for the Pirates.

Vance Worley has lost the competition for the final starting position to Jeff Locke. Worley had a great bounce back year in 2014, and Worley will be the first to fill in for an injury in the Pirates starting rotation. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Vance Worley will be a long reliever in the Pirates bullpen, but has a chance to regain a starting spot if there is an injury. Worley will be a decent bullpen option in a deep fantasy league, but you will more than likely be able to find a better reliever.

Fantasy Impact: Vance Worley is in contention for the 5th and final starter in the Pirates rotation. Worley didn't pitch fantastic in the game against Toronto on Wednesday; However, Worley is still my favorite to win the final starting job with the Pirates because of his amazing season last year. Worley will be a great sleeper pick for your fantasy roster this season.
