Brandon Workman: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Workman did an admirable job in four innings of long-relief Tuesday, giving up one run on two hits with three strikeouts against the Rangers. However, he will be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket before Wednesday's game to make room for the activation of Craig Breslow (shoulder) from the disabled list.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Workman was named the organization's top minor league pitcher in 2012, when he split time between High-A Salem and Double-A Portland. He needed to develop secondary offerings and he did just that, establishing a cutter that projects as an out pitch. There is still work to do on his curve and changeup, but nobody is talking about moving him to the bullpen just yet. He improved in both his walk and strikeout rates and should be part of the starting rotation at Double-A Portland when the 2013 opens. A full season at Double-A will serve as a good test for Workman.

2012

Workman's is a tall right-hander with an easy motion and big frame that looks like he can handle the rigors of being a starting pitcher. His first professional season was a relatively successful one. He had enough to get by in Low-A, but needs to develop his secondary offerings and locate his fastball in places where hitters have to work to make hard contact. His curveball is getting better, but the changeup isn't where it needs to be right now. He needs to have a bigger arsenal to finish off hitters. He may be able to work himself through High-A ball, but those pitches better be firm by the time he reaches Double-A Portland. If not, we may see him move to a bullpen role.

2011

Workman signed late in the Summer after being drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft out of the University of Texas. He was 12-2 for the Longhorns, showing marked improvement in the command of his fastball from his sophomore to junior season. He brings a fastball/curveball/cutter mix with a need to develop a change. He could land with an assignment at High-A Salem, where he'll work on becoming more consistent with his curveball. His fastball has velocity and shows good movement, capable of swing-and-misses, and his high-80s cutter can be a go-to pitch for him. Workman is one of four intriguing young arms in the system to watch.
