Vance Worley requested a second opinion on his sore right elbow, so he saw noted orthopedist James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla., on Monday.

As reported in Monday's Inquirer, Worley has a small bone chip in his right elbow.

"He has a small body embedded in the lining of his joint," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "We don't think it's the reason why he had inflammation, but it's possible. This is something that's not very uncommon. But it could be the cause of some of the inflammation. We haven't heard from Andrews."

Worley said Sunday he expects to require offseason surgery to remove the bone chip. When asked if there was any treatment other than rest, Worley said, "Man up. That's the only thing I can do. I'll just grit and grind out there."

Stutes has shoulder soreness while both Herndon and De Fratus are sidelined by elbow trouble.
