Phillies Send Starting Pitcher To Minors-His ERA Was Too High At 2.20

See Worley, Phils beat Marlins 1-0.

One anonymous source said "The guy clearly was not pulling his weight." Another said "We couldn't allow him to put our season in jeopardy."

If you look at the numbers I posted yesterday, 3 of the top 7 in WAR in the NL were Phillies pitchers (that is among everyone, position players included). This has got to be very rare.

I recently discovered that the 1982 Phillies cut a pitcher, (Dewey Robinson) with a career 4.05 ERA, that he was overqualified to pitch for them. This same Phillies team had Steve Carlton.
