Brandon Workman (elbow) threw to hitters Monday.

Workman hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2014 due to elbow troubles, but he apparently looked sharp during Monday's workout in Red Sox camp. "I was excited. It was good to be back out there and have batters in the box and just be part of the regular stuff," Workman said. "I felt like it got there." The 28-year-old right-hander is trying to win a spot in the Boston bullpen.

Red Sox and RHP Brandon Workman avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $635,000 contract.

The 28-year-old hurler missed the entire 2016 campaign while rehabbing after Tommy John surgery. Given the depth that the Red Sox have stockpiled in the bullpen, Workman will have his work cut out for him in trying to make the club's Opening Day bullpen.

Red Sox activated RHP Brandon Workman from the 60-day disabled list.

Workman missed the entire 2016 season while rehabbing from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. He should be ready for the start of spring training in 2017, but the 28-year-old right-hander is going to have to prove himself worthy of a spot in the Boston bullpen.

Brandon Workman (elbow) has moved his minor league rehab assignment to Double-A Portland.

The right-hander posted a 3.38 ERA and 8/2 K/BB ratio in eight innings with the Low-A Lowell Spinners. He has been out all season following Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery but is trying to make himself an option for the Red Sox bullpen down the stretch. An early-September debut seems possible.

Brandon Workman was forced to leave Friday's minor league rehab start with an apparent injury.

The right-hander felt something on his side, so the training staff made the call to lift him immediately rather than risking further aggravation. He's working his way back from Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to be an option for the Red Sox until the end of the season.

Red Sox transferred RHP Brandon Workman (right elbow) to the 60-day disabled list.

Workman is eight months removed from Tommy John surgery and will aim to return to the Boston bullpen at some point in the second half of the 2016 season. The 27-year-old right-hander will likely be stationed at Triple-A Pawtucket once he's deemed healthy enough for game action.
Thu, Feb 18, 2016 11:46:00 AM

Brandon Workman (elbow) said Saturday that he hopes to return at some point in 2016.

He's currently recovering from Tommy John surgery and is expected to miss most, if not all of, the 2016 season. Even if he does make it back, it would be in a minimal role and he wouldn't hold any fantasy value.
