Vance Worley hasn't had a great run at Triple-A Rochester. 

The struggling starter, who the Minnesota Twins sent down in late May, has been placed on the seven-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation, according to a report from the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Mike Berardino.

Worley was scheduled to start on Friday for Rochester, but he has been replaced by P.J. Walters.

Worley has made nine starts for the Red Wings -- a stretch that has been littered with inconsistencies. He has a 3.88 ERA over the course of 58 innings in that span, with 34 strikeouts and 17 walks (1.8 per game).

Four of those starts he has surrendered four runs or more, including an appearance on July 2 in which he walked five batters and allowed four runs in five and one-third innings pitched. Worley has a combined 5.79 ERA in his last three starts, allowing 22 hits and nine walks.
