Brandon Workman named Red Sox closer to begin 2020

Red Sox interim manager Ron Roenicke says Brandon Workman will be the team's closer to begin the 2020 season.

Fantasy Impact

"I think with what he did last year, he deserves that shot to be the closer," were his exact words. The 31-year-old pitched great last year, posting a 1.88 ERA with 104 strikeouts in 71 2/3 innings. He isn't considered an elite fantasy option due to his limited track record but Workman could easily wind up with 30+ saves this year.

Brandon Workman to receive a limited workload next week

Manager Alex Cora said he'll try to stay away from high-leverage relievers, including Brandon Workman, after the current series with Tampa Bay ends Monday, Chris Cotillo of reports.

Fantasy Impact

Workman has taken over the closer role for the Red Sox in the second half of the season. Fantasy owners in their last week of the playoffs may want to find another option for saves if they own Workman.
