PASA: Worrell

This series, Pitchers and Stomach Aches, is based on my new feature on, Decade's Worst Individual Pitching Performaces, otherwise know as DWIPP.

“I just fell behind and made a pitch up and over the plate.” -Tim Worrell

In the offseason of 2003, Worrell signed with the Phillies as a free agent. During the 2004 season, he posted a 3.68 ERA and saved 19 games.

In 2005, Worrell pitched in 19 games with the Phillies and had a record of 0-1. His ERA was 7.41 and had a WHIP of 1.88. In 17 innings, he gave up 14 earned runs and 29 hits. He was 1/3 in save opportunities.

The Phillies traded him to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Matt Kata. With the Diamondbacks in 2005, he had a 2.27 ERA. While with Arizona, the Phillies had a chance for payback. Phillies batters hit .333 against him and his ERA was 13.50 against his former team that year.

Worrell last pitched with the San Franciso Giants in 2006 and posted a 7.52 ERA.
