PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies right-hander Vance Worley has been placed on the disabled list and will have elbow surgery next month.

Worley was shut down on Wednesday, a day after another subpar outing. The righty was 6-9 with a 4.20 ERA this year after going 11-3 with a 3.01 ERA as a rookie last year. He had a 5.80 ERA in 11 starts since July 3.

Righty Tyler Cloyd was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start in place of the ailing Cole Hamels against the Mets on Wednesday night. Cloyd would then take Worley's spot in the rotation.
