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.


Brandon Workman can't hang out Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman couldn’t pick up a win Tuesday against the White Sox.

Workman tossed seven innings of work, allowing three earned runs. The White Sox scored five runs off Workman, but only three were earned due to an early error by first baseman Mike Napoli. The Red Sox actually came back to tie the game, but Workman proceeded to allow a two-run homer to Conor Gillaspie the following inning, giving him the loss.

Workman allowed eight hits and two walks during the appearance. He struck out five. The loss drops him to 1-3 on the year. His next start is slated to come against the Astros. 


Brandon Workman drops second straight


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman lost his second start in a row Wednesday, as they fell 16-9 to the Cubs.

Workman lasted just four innings in his shortest start of the season. He was tagged for six runs on five hits and three walks, while allowing two home runs in his second straight start. Workman struck out three batters on 69 pitches in the loss.

Workman is now 1-2 on the season, after making it through his first five starts without a loss. He has a 4.17 ERA in 45 1/3 innings, with his next start set for Tuesday against the White Sox.


Homers hurt Brandon Workman in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman looked rusty in his return from a suspension Friday, in a 6-0 loss to the Yankees.

Workman pitched for the first time in nearly two weeks, and struggled with the Yankees lineup. He allowed one run in the first inning and three more in the fourth, with the last three coming on a pair of home runs. He was charged with four runs on seven hits and a pair of walks in seven innings, while striking out five batters on 108 pitches.

Workman fell to 1-1 with the loss, while his ERA rose to 3.27. He will try to get back on track in his next outing, set for Wednesday against the Cubs. 


Red Sox willing to consider 'everything available' in rotation


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Red Sox are willing to consider "everything available" to them in the rotation, according to the Providence Journal.

The team is attempting to figure out which players should retain a spot in the rotation. After Jake Peavy was hit hard again Tuesday, the situation has become a bit more dire. Brandon Workman seems like he's slated for a spot in the rotation, but the club also wants to keep Rubby De La Rosa around. It's unclear if Peavy would get a break from starting, or wind up on the disabled list with a phantom injury. 

Through 98 2/3 innings, Peavy has a 4.93 ERA. 


Brandon Workman staying in rotation, next start up in the air


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Red Sox will stay with Brandon Workman in the rotation upon Clay Buchholz's return from the disabled list Wednesday, according to MLB.com.

Workman, whose suspension ended Tuesday, could make his return to the rotation Friday against the Yankees, though that isn't a sure thing yet. The Red Sox opted to move Felix Doubront to the bullpen to open up a spot for Buchholz, but might have one more move in store before settling on a rotation.

Workman is 1-0 with a 2.88 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 34 1/3 innings of work with the Red Sox. 


Brandon Workman has chance to stay in rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Red Sox manager John Farrell told MLB Network Radio Tuesday that it isn't a foregone conclusion Brandon Workman will be moved from the rotation to the bullpen with Clay Buchholz (knee) set to come off the disabled list.

"Because he has some bullpen experience that may seem like the move to make, but we don't want him to bounce back and forth," Farrell said of Workman.


Brandon Workman has suspension upheld


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) The Red Sox announced starting pitcher Brandon Workman's six-game suspension was not reduced and he began serving it Wednesday. He's eligible to return Tuesday at Seattle, but no replacement has been named yet for his start Friday at Oakland.

Red Sox still waiting for word on Brandon Workman


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) The Red Sox still don't know whether pitcher Brandon Workman will be able to start Friday at Oakland as scheduled. Workman appealed his six-game suspension for throwing at the head area of the Rays' Evan Longoria, and the ruling could come down any moment.

Manager John Farrell expects Workman to miss one start, telling ESPN.com, "We’re taking steps to keep a couple of guys available to fill in Friday."

Workman owns a 2.88 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP in 34 1/3 innings of relief. It remains to be seen if he'll remain in the rotation for the start Friday at Oakland.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
