Stutes, Worley sent down

Another cut-down day today, and among The Departed are two young arms who have had decent springs: righthanders Mike Stutes and Vance Worley.

Another cut-down day today, and among The Departed are two young arms who have had decent springs: righthanders Mike Stutes and Vance Worley.

Stutes didn't seem to have a realistic role on the big league club, despite an impressive performance in Grapefruit League play. A non-roster invitee, he appears to be the most major-league ready of the Phillies' young relievers and could merit a call-up if the bullpen suffers an injury this season.

Worley is expected to start the season in the rotation at Triple-A.

Other sent down include INF Jeff Larish, SS Freddy Galvis, OF Brandon Moss, LHP Dan Meyer and LHP Juan Perez.
