|Manager would like to see Brandon Workman in just one role |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/13/14) Red Sox manager John Farrell said he would like to see pitcher Brandon Workman settle into one role instead of bouncing between being a starter and reliever.
"I think if you make the shift, then you stick to whatever shift you move to," Farrell said, per MLB.com. "But to go back and forth, that takes a lot out of a pitcher, regardless of age. In some ways, you can put a guy a little bit more at risk because it would change a role and a difference in routines. I think you're asking a lot when you do that. He could pitch in either role for us, but we would not want to switch back and forth with any regularity."
Workman will likely begin the 2014 season at Triple-A Pawtucket, unless he's needed in the majors due to an injury in the rotation or bullpen.
|Brandon Workman allows two runs in loss to O's |

(3/8/14) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over 3 1/3 innings of work in a 13-2 defeat to the Orioles.
Workman, who is expected to be stretched out as a starter to start the season, has allowed seven runs over 5 2/3 innings through his first two starts in Grapefruit League action.
|Brandon Workman surrenders five runs Monday |

(3/3/14) Drawing the start Monday in place of an injured Jake Peavy, Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman allowed five earned runs on five hits, including two home runs, while striking out four in 2 1/3 innings in his team's 7-6 loss to the Pirates.
"I thought [Workman] showed good definition with three different pitches, but when he mislocated or elevated a couple times, they made him pay for it," Red Sox manager John Farrell said Monday. "But we got him out for the start of the third inning, and as we continue to stretch him out, we got him to 45 or so pitches, it was a solid work day, even though the results might not be what we anticipated."
Workman was a starting pitcher by trade coming up through the minors, but he made just three starts and 17 relief appearances in his Red Sox debut last season. However, the team is going to stretch him out this spring as preparation for a potential starting role.
|Brandon Workman solid in first start |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(2/27/14) The Red Sox plan to keep pitcher Brandon Workman stretched out as a starter to begin the season, a trend that began with his first start of the spring schedule Thursday against Northeastern University.
Workman pitched just two innings in his first start, and did as well as should be expected against college hitters. He faced the minimum in his two innings of work despite allowing a hit, while striking out a pair of hitters in a game the Red Sox would go on to win, 5-2.
Workman came up through the minors as a starter, but made just three starts out of 20 appearances as a starter. He posted a 4.97 ERA in 41 2/3 innings as a rookie.
|Brandon Workman had a nice mid-season run for the Red Sox in 2013, with a 2.45 ERA and 18 strikeouts in 18 1/3 innings over his only three starts (all coming in July). However, when converted to a reliever role, Workman faltered, putting up a 6.94 ERA over 23 1/3 innings. Unfortunately for Workman, his only hope of making an impact with Boston coming into 2014 is as a reliever, as the Red Sox are deep with starting pitching. This makes Workman -- who has been a starter through most of his career -- far less attractive as a Fantasy asset. If he's traded to a team that can use him as a starter -- or if a couple injuries in the rotation open a spot for him -- Workman will have some value in deeper leagues. But as a reliever, there's little here for a Fantasy owner to work with. He can be left undrafted in most formats.
