Worley feels good yet rusty in bullpen session

NEW YORK -- Phillies right-hander Vance Worley threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session without pain or discomfort Tuesday at Citi Field.

Worley is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Friday, and could rejoin the rotation Monday against the Dodgers at Citizens Bank Park.

"It feels like it's been some time," said Worley, asked how sharp he felt. "There's a little rust mechanically. I felt good, but the ball was a little flat, just because I haven't been able to get any angle to it, I hadn't been on the mound in [a while]."
