Brandon Workman Wins Amica Pitcher Of The Week

The extra rest paid off for right-hander Brandon Workman. After losing five consecutive starts and posting a 6.04 ERA over 28 1/3 innings, Workman saw his turn in the rotation get skipped last week, as Anthony Ranaudo got the nod instead. But Workman bounced back in a big way when he returned to the mound Monday night against the Los Angeles Angels. Facing a dangerous lineup, Workman...

Sox Lose Series Opener With the Angels

The Red Sox headed into a 4 game series with the Angels who are in the middle of a division race with the A’s, so it seems like the Halos have a lot more to be playing for than the Red Sox. The Sox could help out their former teammates Lester, Gomes, Crisp, Lowrie, Reddick, Moss and Punto if they took a few games from the Angels, but it seems like they were unable to get that accomplished...

Brandon Workman Uses Extra Rest To Advantage Despite Losing To Angels

BOSTON — Brandon Workman’s batteries looked recharged. Workman, who was skipped in favor of Anthony Ranaudo during the Red Sox’s last trip through the starting rotation, provided seven solid innings Monday despite Boston falling 4-2 to the Los Angeles Angels at Fenway Park. “Obviously, the added rest helped. I thought his stuff ticked up in terms of action, crispness, velocity...

Brandon Workman’s Drop-Off Creates Extra Rotation Question For Red Sox

Brandon Workman’s 2014 season has included rain delays, an ejection, a suspension, promotions, demotions, success, failure and everything in-between. In a word, it’s been eventful. A prevailing truth has emerged from the oddities of Workman’s campaign, however. The 25-year-old, while still full of potential, no longer is head and shoulders above the rest of the Boston Red Sox’s...

Brandon Workman Looking For Control In Start Against Cardinals (Video)

Boston Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman has great stuff, but the 25-year-old has lacked the control to really shine as a major league starter this season. But he’ll have the chance to do so against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday. Workman’s arsenal of pitches is impressive for a player his age. He has a fastball, cutter, changeup and curveball that have the potential to be...

Brandon Workman Appeals 6-Game Suspension

Major League Baseball handed down a ludicrous six-game suspension on Brandon Workman for "intentionally throwing" at Evan Longoria during PunkRaysGate last Friday. This, despite the fact that the only people who were actually hit that night were three Red Sox players. How Joe Torre and his 'gumshoes' did not find David Price equally guilty of intentionality is astounding...

Workman Gem Wasted In An 11-Inning, 3-2 Loss

(Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)Brandon Workman made a big statement in his first big league start. The 24-year-old righty carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, giving up his bid for immortality and the lead on a two-run home run in that frame. The game droned on until the 11th when the A's walked-off with a 3-2 win—victimizing new Red Sox reliever Matt Thornton. Dustin Pedroia...
