Hamels to miss start, Worley to DL

(The Phanatic Magazine) - Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels will miss his scheduled start Wednesday against the New York Mets with a gastrointestinal illness.

Rookie Tyler Cloyd will be recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and will make the first start of his major league career.

Cloyd was named the International League's Most Valuable Starting Pitcher, recording a 12-1 record in 22 starts for the IronPigs. In 142 innings, the 25- year-old right-hander has tallied 93 strikeouts and just 38 walks, while pitching to a 2.35 ERA.

To make room for Cloud, Vance Worley will placed on the DL. Worley is scheduled to have season-ending right elbow surgery sometime in the next 10 days.
