RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Workman was preparing for a spot in Bostonís bullpen in 2015, with a possibility of working in high-leverage situations, but experienced a worrisome drop in velocity during spring training and was eventually diagnosed with an elbow injury. He opted for a platelet-rich plasma injection and rest in hopes of avoiding Tommy John surgery, but Workman eventually underwent the knife in June. That decision to delay the surgery pushes out his 2016 return to sometime mid-summer. The Red Sox will address their many bullpen needs by then, so Workman may be in line for work at Triple-A Pawtucket depending on how the reconfigured bullpen pans out between April and July. Workman has significant experience as a starter in the minors, but his brief exposure to major-league hitters as a starter in 2014 did not go well. Workman will likely remain in Fort Myers after Boston breaks camp.

2015

Workman, an up-and-coming starter in the organization, had an impressive stint in Boston's bullpen during their championship season in 2013. After considering a move to the bullpen, the organization decided to have Workman pitch as a starter at Triple-A Pawtucket in 2014. He was eventually called up to Boston to replace an injured Felix Doubront in the rotation and earned the respect of his teammates during a tumultuous game against the Rays that featured several hit batsmen and pitches with a message. While the Red Sox admire his competitiveness, Workman's results weren't there and he was eventually replaced by Rubby De La Rosa in the rotation. Workman made it back to Boston when they traded away starters Jon Lester, Jake Peavy and John Lackey, but his performance was still shaky. Given the struggles he exhibited as a starter in 2014 -- 10 homers and 35 walks in 80.2 innings -- and the success he's had as a reliever in the past, Workman is probably headed for a bullpen role in 2015.

2014

Workman was one of several minor-league pitchers that made contributions at the major league level in 2013. He began the year at Double-A Portland and finished it pitching in the eighth inning of a World Series game. That should tell you a little something about the pitcher and the confidence the organization places in him. A starter for all of his career, Workman was called to Boston as a reliever, though he made two starts, and became a trusted member of the pen in the second half of the season. He struck out 11.2 batters per nine innings as a reliever. He has a starter's arsenal and durability, so he's still viewed as one by the club, but if he's needed to be a full-time reliever in 2014, so be it. The Red Sox made some moves to bolster the pen and Workman should get back to being a starter at Triple-A Pawtucket.

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.
