Red Sox looking at Brandon Workman as a reliever
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1:12 am ET) The Red Sox are looking at pitcher Brandon Workman as a reliever this spring, according to the Boston Herald.
Manager John Farrell seemed to think Workman would be more than adequate in the role. "His mentality is one that embraces those higher leverage type of innings," Farrell said. "In one-inning stints, his stuff plays up a little bit more with power, a little bit more swing-and-miss ability with his fastball."
Workman seems open to the change. "If John tells me that’s where I’m going to fit in, that’s where I’ll fit in," he said.
The 26-year-old Workman posted a 5.17 ERA over 87 innings last year.
Red Sox's Workman preparing to compete for a spot in rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/30/15) With the offseason acquisitions of Rick Porcello, Wade Miley and Justin Masterson, Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman chances of making the opening-day rotation have significantly decreased. Workman knows his best chance of making the roster will be as a reliever, but he still expects to show up to spring training competing for a spot in the rotation, per ESPN.
“I’m going in there looking forward to competing, hopefully winning a spot,” Workman said. “I’d like to be in the rotation. I’m hoping I can win a job in the starting rotation but we’ll see how that goes. I’m doing everything I can right now to prepare for it and get ready to put myself in a good spot to compete for that job.”
Workman struggled last season, going 1-10 with a 5.17 ERA in 19 appearances at the major-league level. Although, most of his struggles came as a starter. He went 1-9 with a 5.36 ERA in 15 starts, while going 0-1 with a 2.84 ERA in four relief appearances.
“My stuff kind of fell off at the end of last year,” Workman said. “I wasn’t bringing the same stuff to the table that I was at the beginning of the year and that made it tougher on me. But even with that, I feel like if I would have executed better I still would have been able to get the job done."
Red Sox shuffle rotation for final week
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) WEEI.com reports that Brandon Workman and Rubby De La Rosa have been removed from the Red Sox's rotation for the final week of the season. Clay Buchholz, Anthony Ranaudo and Allen Webster are set to make starts against the Rays, and then Joe Kelly and Buchholz will start the last two games of the team's season-ending series against the Yankees.
Friday's starter in the series opener against the Yankees is still to be named, but Steven Wright is a candidate to get the nod. Wright has posted a 3.38 ERA in five relief appearances this season.
Brandon Workman bounces back in losing effort
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/18/14) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman bounced back with a decent outing in a losing effort Thursday night against the Pirates, dropping to 1-10 on the year. He permitted three runs -- two earned -- on seven hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings of a 3-2 defeat.|
Over his last four starts covering 17 1/3 innings, Workman has allowed 17 earned runs. He owns a 5.17 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP over 87 innings of work. His next start will come Thursday against Tampa Bay, likely his final start of the season.
Brandon Workman pounded again, this time by Orioles
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/10/14) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman did work, man. But he didn't work for long Wednesday. He was knocked out by Baltimore after three innings.
Workman got through 2 1/3 with little problem. He then yielded four singles, one double and a walk to fall behind 6-0. He finished having yielded those six runs on six hits and three walks with three strikeouts in falling to a disturbing 1-9 on the season.
The right-hander is 0-9 with one no-decision in his last three starts. He has surrendered 15 earned runs in his last 12 1/3 innings to raise his ERA to 5.27. He will try to reduce it Monday in Pittsburgh if he is given another start.
|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.
