by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) 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.

Brandon Workman still 2-3 weeks away from throwing for Red Sox


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) 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
(4/14/2015) 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
(4/13/2015) The Red Sox rescinded their demotion of pitcher Brandon Workman to the minors and instead sent him to the disabled list, reports WEEI.com.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox looking at Brandon Workman as a reliever


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) 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
(1/30/2015) 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
(9/21/2014) 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
(9/18/2014) 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
(9/10/2014) 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.


Brandon Workman settles for no-decision Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) 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. 


Red Sox option Brandon Workman, recall Heath Hembree


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) The Red Sox have optioned pitcher Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket and recalled pitcher Heath Hembree.

Workman surrendered seven runs in 3 1/3 innings in his latest start, and the off performance has cost him a spot in the rotation. He's 1-8 with a 4.93 ERA and 56:28 K:BB ratio in 73 innings. Hembree has made one relief appearance with the major-league club, tossing four scoreless innings on Aug. 9.


Brandon Workman knocked around against M's


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman got knocked around Saturday against the Mariners.

Workman allowed seven runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. Things started well for Workman, as he was able to get through the first three innings without giving up any runs. Things collapsed in the fourth inning. Workman gave up two singles and a run-scoring double to the first three batters of the inning. After notching a strikeout, Workman gave up another run-scoring hit. The next run came home on a wild pitch. With a man on second, Workman gave up a run-scoring single. He then allowed another single to the next batter. With two men on, Dustin Ackley belted a three-run homer to right, giving the Mariners seven runs in the inning. Workman was pulled following the homer. 

With the loss, Workman dropped to 1-8. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start. 


Brandon Workman loses despite solid start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman goes seven strong Monday.

Workman allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings of work. He struck out five and walked two during the outing. Workman was tagged for both runs in the third innings. After getting the first two outs, Workman walked Kole Calhoun. A Mike Trout double drove in Calhoun, and an Albert Pujols single brought Trout home. Workman was able to get out of the inning without giving up any additional runs. 

With the loss, Workman fell to 1-7. He’ll take on the Mariners in his next start. 


Anthony Ranaudo replacing Brandon Workman Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) The Red Sox will recall pitcher Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Pawtucket to start Wednesday against the Reds, as manager John Farrell told MLB Network Radio he will take Brandon Workman's place in the rotation.

Workman will be skipped in the rotation, given his recent struggles. He has allowed seven runs over 10 1/3 innings in his last three appearances, including allowing a walkoff homerun in relief Saturday. 


Brandon Workman can't solve the Cardinals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman was pegged with the loss Thursday night against the Cardinals in St. Louis, dropping to 1-5 on the year. The right-hander permitted four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over 5 1/3 innings of work.

Over his last five starts covering 28 1/3 innings, Workman has allowed 19 earned runs. He owns a 4.31 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 62 2/3 innings of work. His next start will come Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Value hard to find among Red Sox rotation candidates


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Red Sox have decided to go all-in on next season, turning the rotation over to a slew of young guys after the trades of Jon Lester and John Lackey prior to the deadline. With so many innings up for grabs, Fantasy owners will want to keep a close eye on how things shake out, especially given the team's abundance of seemingly capable young starters.

Among the group of pitchers expected to get a shot at some point down the stretch are Anthony Ranaudo, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa, Brandon Workman and Joe Kelly. The latter four all have at least some major-league experience, though Ranaudo will get at least a taste of the majors when he debuts Friday against the Yankees. Of these five pitchers, who, if anyone, should Fantasy owners have their eyes on?

For now, it looks like De La Rosa, Ranaudo, Webster, Workman and Clay Buchholz have the next five spots in the rotation locked up, though a spot might open up for Kelly at some point once he reports to the team. De La Rosa, Buchholz and Kelly all have some measure of major-league success under their belts, though none profiles as a high-upside Fantasy option, given their middling track records so far. If upside is to be found, it is likely to come in the form of one of the other options. 

Webster has the best prospect pedigree among the group, and he and Ranaudo probably have the highest ceilings for now. Of course, the obvious caveats about young pitching apply. Though their upside is tantalizing, we simply don't have any record of success at the major-league level to depend on.

The Red Sox don't have a lot of sure things for their long-term rotation, and they will need to use these last few months get an idea of who they can count on next season. The question for Fantasy owners is whether they want their roster to be the team's laboratory during the most important months of the season. 

The young guys in Boston will all get their turns, but there isn't anyone in the rotation right now that screams "must-add," either due to a lack of upside or proven track record. AL-only owners might be smart to take a flier on anyone currently in the team's rotation, but it doesn't look like anyone here is worth consideration in mixed-leagues at this time. 


Brandon Workman takes loss in return to Red Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman took a loss Wednesday, giving up five runs (two earned) on four hits and four walks in five innings and striking out two in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Blue Jays.

Making his return Wednesday after Jon Lester was scratched due to trade discussions, Workman (1-4) gave up two runs in the top of the first inning before running into trouble in the fifth when the third run scored on an error by the pitcher. Two more would come around in that inning. Workman owns a 4.08 ERA and 43:23 K:BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings. His next start is to be determined, based on how the rotation looks after the trading deadline.


Jon Lester scratched Wednesday, Brandon Workman to start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester has been scratched from Wednesday's scheduled start, the Springfield Republican reports.

Lester's name has been involved in trade talks as the deadline nears, and the Red Sox have decided to hold him out Wednesday, which will avoid the chance he's injured while also leave him available to pitch for a new team if he is traded. Brandon Workman will take Lester's scheduled start Wednesday.


Brandon Workman is Plan B for Jon Lester's Wednesday start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The Red Sox have a plan in place to use Brandon Workman as Wednesday's starter if Jon Lester is scratched due to ongoing trade talks, MLB.com reports.

"Although there's a lot of rumor and talk with his name attached to it, right now he's scheduled to start tomorrow night," manager John Farrell said Tuesday. "We have a contingency plan, sure. If Jon is traded by this time tomorrow [4 p.m.], Brandon Workman will start."

Lester has been a hot name in trade rumors this month, with the Red Sox out of the playoff race and the pitcher due to become a free agent this offseason.


Red Sox announce rotation plans for start of second half


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) The Red Sox announced Clay Buchholz will be on the mound for the team's second-half opener Friday vs. Kansas City. He will be followed in the three-game series by Rubby De La Rosa and Jon Lester.

John Lackey will then open a series at Toronto July 21. He will be followed by Jake Peavy before the rotation resets.

It appears for the time being that Brandon Workman will remain in the minors. He was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket Wednesday in order to clear a roster spot for De La Rosa.
