As expected, the Phillies recalled outfielder John Mayberry from Triple A Lehigh Valley to take the roster spot of Vance Worley, who was optioned after picking up the win last night against the Marlins.

Worley, 23, is scheduled to start for Lehigh Valley on Saturday. With the Phillies this year, he has gone 4-1 with a 2.20 ERA in 10 games (eight starts). The move was made to keep Worley on his routine during the All-Star break, as explained in today's story.

Mayberry was hitting .265 with four home runs and 15 RBI in 28 games for Lehigh Valley this season. With the Phillies, Mayberry has hit .231 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 45 games. This marks his second recall of the year.
