The Phillies shuffled their pitching staff, purchasing the contract of Vance Worley from Double A Reading and optioning Andrew Carpenter to Triple A Lehigh Valley, a day after he was called up.

Worley, 22, was 9-4 with a 3.20 ERA in 19 starts for Reading this season. He has pitched 17 consecutive scoreless innings over his last two outings, which included his first professional shutout, a three-hitter on July 9 against Harrisburg. Worley was named the Phillies’ Minor League Pitcher of the Week today.

Carpenter, 25, allowed three runs in three innings of relief last night, coming in after Jamie Moyer was injured.

Carpenter also took a comebacker off the wrist last night.
