Vance Worley tossed seven scoreless innings Sunday striking out five without allowing a walk in the no-decision versus the Marlins.
Worley was able to keep the Marlins off their toes despite working mainly in the high 80's on Sunday. Worley got the call up to start on Sunday after the Pirates placed Francisco Liriano on the disabled list due to an oblique injury. Worley may have earned himself at least one more start which could come on Saturday in Chicago versus the Cubs, but the team has yet to make that decision final.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Aldon Smith said he is "hungry" to bounce back in 2015.
While that's all well and good, the bottom line is that Smith needs to stay focused on the field and out of trouble off it. His suspension really hurt the 49ers defense and with a new regime taking over, he needs to really prove that he's more than just a problem child. He can be one of the best in the game if he's focused, so if he's really that hungry, the 49ers will let him eat. Analysis: Howard Bender
