Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman (elbow) plays catch
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/20/15) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman has begun playing catch and says he can feel a difference after receiving a PRP injection in his elbow last month, according to the Boston Globe.
The right-hander has been on the disabled list with an elbow strain all season. The team has not provided an updated timetable for return or next steps in his recovery process.
Brandon Workman still 2-3 weeks away from throwing for Red Sox
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Brandon Workman is still two-to-three weeks away from starting a throwing program, Red Sox manager John Farrell said.
Workman received a PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) injection earlier in the week, to help stimulate healing of his injured elbow ligament.
"He’s still probably two or three weeks away from initiating any type of throwing program," Farrell said, per WEEI. "So he’ll remain here in Boston. There are some changes to the ligament. To what extent, or percentage of tear, I don’t have that. But that is why he received the injection he did."

Red Sox's Brandon Workman to get second opinion on elbow
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman will get a second opinion on his strained elbow from Dr. James Andrews, CSNNE.com reports.
"He attempted to throw a bullpen [session] after he was optioned and there was discomfort there," manager John Farrell said, per MLB.com. "I think anytime someone gets a second opinion with Dr. Andrews there's concern. To what extent there is damage or injury remains to be seen, and what the follow up treatment will be as a result remains to be seen also."
Workman is not currently expected to need surgery on the elbow, but he'll get more information before making a decision. He was initially optioned to Triple-A before the season but had the move reversed to be placed on the disabled list.
Red Sox P Brandon Workman has option to minors reversed
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) The Red Sox rescinded their demotion of pitcher Brandon Workman to the minors and instead sent him to the disabled list, reports WEEI.com.
Workman was optioned to Triple-A after failing to secure a spot in the bullpen. The DL stint is retroactive to April 3 with an elbow strain.
|2014 summary: Brandon Workman's season took a series of unexpected turns on its way to a 1-10 record and 5.17 ERA. After struggling through seven starts at Triple-A Pawtucket, Workman was promoted to the Red Sox's rotation, and he posted a 3.21 ERA through his first five starts. Subsequent difficulties coupled with the impending All-Star break landed Workman back in Pawtucket, where he redeemed himself with a 2.38 ERA over four starts. That stretch earned Workman a longer look in Boston after the Red Sox cleaned out their rotation with deadline deals, and it all went south. Workman registered an 0-7 record with a 6.75 ERA over eight appearances that included seven starts.|
Playing time status: Though Workman didn't do himself any favors with his second-half performance, he will likely be in the mix for the Red Sox's rotation for 2015.
2015 outlook: Sharp control had been a positive for Workman during much of his minor league career, but it was largely absent last season. Even at his best, Workman won't be a viable option in most mixed leagues on draft day, but he's a worthy flier for AL-only owners.
