Should the Phils Sign Vance Worley? An #Analysis


With the Twins recent release of pitcher Vance Worley, folks have been kicking around the idea of bringing The Vanimal back to Philadelphia. As a hard-hitting analytic sort, I want to take a deep dive into the pros and cons of such a move. Let's get to it.

CON:  Worley has posted a 13.50 ERA and allowed 22 hits in 10 2/3 innings this spring.



PRO:



CON: Opponents are hitting .415 against him this spring.

PRO: 



CON:  In his first season with the Twins, Worley was 1-5 with a 7.21 ERA

PRO: 




CON:  Worley's SO/9 and ERA+ numbers have sharply declined each season of his career, while his WHIP and H/9 have increased each season.

PRO:



VERDICT: You can't argue with numbers... the Phils should definitely sign Vance Worley.
