Is anyone expecting some kind of bounce back from Vance Worley?
I think it is entirely possible. I believe even probable. Not only for Worley but for Diamond as well. Worley changed cities as well as leagues and battled some injuries. As did Diamond, rehabbing from an elbow that was bothering him, if I remember correctly.
In my lineup/roster plans I have them both on the outside looking in, in favore or Correia, 2 FA signings as well as Gibson stronger and learning and Deduno building on what he has done when healthy. (There is the injury re-had bugaboo again)
Neither Worley nor Diamond are world beaters. But either, or both, have the potential and track record to show they can be serviceable, solid starters. And that is the key to me; if healthy again, mind refreshed with a new healthy season and proof you've done it before, you can do it again
