Prior to Friday's game, Charlie Manuel said the team hadn't decided on a second starter for Monday's doubleheader against Florida.

"We don't know exactly who it is yet," he said.

But hours later, a giant hint was dropped. Righthander Vance Worley started for triple-A Lehigh Valley and was removed after a scoreless first inning. A Phillies official said he was not injured.

That means Worley, 23, will likely be the guy Monday. In 27 starts between triple A and double A, Worley has a 3.36 ERA. He was a third-round pick in the 2008 draft.

Worley pitched one inning for the Phillies earlier this season during a brief call-up. He struck out two Rockies on July 24.

Roy Oswalt will start the other game of the doubleheader — exactly which one is yet to be decided.
