Pirates designate Worley to make room for reliever Blanton

CINCINNATI (AP) Vance Worley was excited when he found out that former teammate Joe Blanton would be joining the Pittsburgh Pirates' bullpen. He was surprised at what came next.

The Pirates designated Worley for assignment on Thursday to open a roster spot for Blanton, who will essentially move into his role. Pittsburgh acquired Blanton from Kansas City for $150,000 early Thursday.

Trades in July make for some unusual and uncomfortable moments.
