MLB trade deadline:

Phillies' Worley placed on DL

The SportsXchange

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Vance Worley was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 12, with right elbow inflammation.

The team isn't sure on the severity of the injury, but Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told reporters that more should be known.

The 24-year-old posted a 3.07 ERA in his first seven starts. He will be replaced by Kyle Kendrick, who has posted a 7.32 ERA in 19 2/3 innings this season.

To replace Worley on the roster, the Phillies recalled left-hander Joe Savery from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The 26-year-old has a 4.50 ERA in eight innings in the major leagues this season.
