Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Less than two months into the 2013 season, the Minnesota Twins optioned opening day starter Vance Worley to Triple-A Rochester after giving up eight runs to the Braves on Wednesday.

Worley, who fell to 1-5 overall, gave up eight runs in 3 2/3 innings against the Braves. He has posted a 7.21 overall ERA this season for the Twins.

In his ten starts as a Twin, Worley had allowed 17 runs and 24 hits in the opening inning. Prior to this season, he had allowed only 23 home runs in nearly 300 career innings.

Worley was acquired in the off-season along with prospect Trevor May from the Phillies for Ben Revere. The right-hander posted a 3.50 ERA in 278 innings for Philadelphia.
