Vance Worley has cleared waivers, the Twins announced Friday.

Jon Heyman reported Friday morning that last year's Opening Day starter had hit the waiver wire. Presumably, Worley hit the waiver wire after his latest start Tuesday, in which he gave up seven runs on 11 hits in 2 2/3 innings.

What this means for Worley: He'll remain in the organization and start the season pitching for Triple-A Rochester.

Kyle Gibson reportedly will open the season in the rotation.

What this means for the Twins: They get to remove Worley from the 40-man roster, meaning they now have one available spot. 

There are 39 players left in camp, which will need to be whittled down to 25 by Opening Day.

Notably, Jason Kubel and Matt Guerrier both are not on the 40-man roster, and would need to be added to make the team.

I posted a bullpen projection Friday, which did not include Guerrier.
