Worley has a bone chip in his throwing elbow

PBR -Vance Worley is believed to have a bone chip in his throwing elbow that will require offseason surgery, according to several reports.

Worley, who is eligible to come off the disabled list on May 27, is expected to throw later this week.

"It got to the point where it was affecting the way I could long-toss and throw my bullpens," Worley told Philly.com. "I started cutting everything shorter. I was just going out there on game day and pitching with everything I had."

Worley, 24, is 3-2 with a 3.07 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 44 innings this season. 

Cole Hamels dealt with a similar injury last season before undergoing offseason surgery.

For now, Worley will persevere through the pain.

"Man up," Worley said. "That's the only thing I can do. I'll just grit and grind out there."
