This is just a bureaucratic shift, as the Sox needed to make room on the 40-man roster for infielder Josh Rutledge, whom they recalled on Wednesday. Workman is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery, but could see action in the second half of the season depending on how his recovery unfolds. Apr 13 - 4:59 PM

Workman will bring a 5.17 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and a 70/36 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's home start against the Rays, in which he'll search for his second win of the season.
