Worley eager to come off DL, start on Monday
PHILADELPHIA --- It's not official, but all signs point to Vance Worley coming off the disabled list in time to slide into Roy Halladay's spot in the rotation on Monday.

Worley, who has been on the 15-day DL since May 12 with right elbow inflammation and a bone chip, said he felt good after throwing 45-50 pitches in a bullpen session on Friday. He said there was no discomfort or pain, and all of his pitches came out well.

Asked if he felt he could pitch in a Major League game on Monday, Worley said he could.

"Everything was coming out the way it should," he said.

General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said if Worley feels good on Saturday, he would probably start in Monday's game against the Dodgers.

"We'll see how he feels tomorrow," Amaro said.

Before going on the DL, Worley was 3-2 with a 3.07 ERA in seven starts. The right-hander is eager to get back on the mound.

"I'm tired of watching and not doing anything," he said.
