Brandon Workman watched his record drop to 1-10 with a loss on Thursday after allowing three runs (two earned) in five innings against the Pirates.

Workman allowed plenty of base runners, as the Pirates racked up seven hits and three walks in the right-hander's five innings. One of the hits was a solo home run by Starling Marte. 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.

Brandon Workman allowed six runs -- five earned -- over three innings Wednesday in a loss to the Orioles.

Workman made it through the first two frames unscathed, but the O's poured on six runs in the top of the third to take a commanding lead in the matinee. Workman is now 1-9 on the year with a 5.27 ERA. He will take on the Pirates at PNC Park next time out.

Brandon Workman notched a quality start in his return to the rotation, allowing three runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Thursday.

Workman was in line for the win until Koji Uehara blew the save in the ninth inning. The right-hander limited the Yankees to five hits and a pair of walks while striking out five. He'll take a 4.90 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 61/30 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's start at home against the Orioles.

Red Sox recalled RHP Brandon Workman from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Workman will start on Thursday versus the Yankees and is expected to remain in the rotation for the rest of the season. The right-hander was hammered for seven earned runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Mariners in his last start at the major league level and isn't a great fantasy option.

Brandon Workman will return to the Red Sox starting rotation on Thursday against the Yankees.

Workman won't officially be added to the roster until Wednesday. The right-hander was hammered for seven earned runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Mariners in his last start at the major league level and probably won't be a very good fantasy option for the stretch run.

Red Sox optioned RHP Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket.

He gets the boot after being rocked for seven earned runs in 3 1/3 innings Saturday versus the Mariners. Workman will probably get another shot in the rotation in September, but the Red Sox have decided someone else will get a chance.

Brandon Workman was lit up for seven earned runs in 3 1/3 innings Saturday by the Mariners.

Workman was staked to a 3-0 lead after three innings, but the Mariners went off for seven runs on seven hits and a wild pitch in the top of the fourth. Workman is now 1-8 on the season with a 4.93 ERA and 1.34 WHIP.

Brandon Workman was solid, allowing two runs over seven innings, but he saw his record fall to 1-7 with Monday's defeat at the hands of the Angels.

He was every bit as good, if not better than C.J. Wilson, but the Red Sox were unable to capitalize on their many opportunities as their 4-through-7 hitters combined to go 0-for-16. Workman gave up six hits and a pair of walks while striking out five. He'll take a 4.26 ERA and a 53/27 K/BB ratio into Saturday's home start against the Mariners.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Tuesday that Brandon Workman will have his turn skipped in the starting rotation this week.

Anthony Ranaudo will be called up to start Wednesday against the Reds. Workman owns a 4.45 ERA and 48/25 K/BB ratio over 62 2/3 innings this season and is no lock to get his rotation spot back.
Tue, Aug 12, 2014 01:38:00 PM

Brandon Workman faltered against the Cardinals, giving up four runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss on Thursday.

Workman falls to 1-5 after the Cardinals were able to push across a quadruplet of runs on six hits and a pair of walks. The right-hander punched out five batters. He left after allowing a one-out single in the sixth, and Craig Breslow was able to navigate out of the inning without any further damage. Workman sports a 4.31 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 48/25 K/BB ratio. His next start will come against the Reds in Cincinnati on Wednesday.

Brandon Workman lost Wednesday in his return to the majors, giving up five runs -- two earned -- in five innings against the Blue Jays.

Only two runs were earned, but Workman contributed to the mess with an error and he finished the night with just two strikeouts and four walks. His chances of sticking in the majors this time currently hinge on what happens with Jon Lester and John Lackey before Thursday's trade deadline.

Red Sox recalled RHP Brandon Workman from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Workman is starting Wednesday in place of Jon Lester, who was scratched from the outing amid rampant trade speculation. Workman owns a 4.13 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 41/19 K/BB ratio in 52 1/3 innings this season, but he's not a very good fantasy play versus Toronto.

Brandon Workman will be recalled to start on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

He's taking the spot of Jon Lester, who has been scratched amid trade rumors. If Lester is indeed dealt, Workman should stick in the rotation for the remainder of the season. The right-hander holds a 4.13 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a 41/19 K/BB ratio over 52 1/3 innings this season.

Red Sox optioned RHP Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The Red Sox needed to clear room on the roster for the addition of Rubby De La Rosa, who will start Wednesday. Workman allowed five runs -- three earned -- over seven innings in a loss to the White Sox Tuesday. He'll be eligible to rejoin the rotation after the All-Star break.
