Quirky Worley stands out among aces
CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP)
That's when the quirky pitcher turns into Vanimal.
On a staff full of aces, Worley stands out for his appearance. He has a Mohawk haircut and wears glasses. But the 24-year-old righty fits in with Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels if you ignore his unique look and focus on his performance. He was 11-3 with a 3.01 ERA as a rookie last year.
Worley developed this attitude at Long Beach State University. He got his nickname as a freshman. But he didn't earn it until his junior year.
