Vance Worley's season is over.
The Phillies announced Tuesday that Worley has been placed on the disabled list because of a right elbow injury that will require surgery. The team said he will undergo surgery in the next seven to 10 days.
Bone chips were discovered in Worley's elbow when he was forced to go on the disabled list in the middle of May. His ERA in his last five starts, including Tuesday's game against the New York Mets, was 6.75. He had a 5.80 in his final 11 starts.
Worley said after Tuesday's game that his elbow had "zero effect" on his pitching problems. Manager Charlie Manuel said Worley has had real difficulty commanding his pitches.
