|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.

(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.

(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.

(9/5/14) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman wasn't a factor into the decision Thursday night against New York. He allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings of work. Koji Uehara gave up back-to-back home runs in the ninth for the loss.
Workman owns a 4.90 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP over 79 innings of work. It remains to be seen if he'll remain in the rotation.
|Brandon Workman to return to action Thursday |

(9/2/14) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman will return to the team's rotation Thursday, according to CSN.
Workman was sent down recently, and can't be called up until Wednesday at the earliest. If he comes back, Workman would take on the Yankees. Workman has a 4.93 ERA over 73 innings.
|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.
