Worley has loose body, bone spur removed from elbow

PHILADELPHIA -- Vance Worley underwent surgery on Friday that removed a loose body and a bone spur from his right elbow. The operation was performed by team physician Michael Ciccotti.

Worley, who was shut down for the season on Aug. 29, will likely rejoin the club on Saturday to start his rehabilitation, assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said.

Worley was 6-9 with a 4.20 ERA this season, a year removed from finishing third in the National League Rookie of the Year voting. The 24-year-old right-hander said recently that the recovery time from the surgery was expected to only be a couple weeks, so he should be ready for Spring Training.
