Workman was never the guy for the Red Sox . . . until one day he just was. When he finally locked down the closer's role, he was fantastic, striking out batters at will and pitching to a 1.88 ERA. His WHIP hovered near 1.00 despite the fact that he walked more than 5.5 batters per nine innings, a feat which he's unlikely to duplicate. In short, while Workman will close for the Red Sox, he'll need to improve his control in order to hold the job for the whole year.

Brandon Workman confirmed as Boston's closer

Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke confirmed that Brandon Workman will be the team's primary closer in 2020.

Fantasy Impact

Workman was terrific in 2019, posting a 1.88 ERA with 104 strikeouts in 71 2/3 innings. Most impressively, he allowed just one homer all year. “I don’t want to say it’s exactly going to be every game that there’s a save situation that he’s in there. It depends on his workload, and how he’s throwing. But to begin with, certainly. He has got the ninth inning right now until something else happens," Roenicke said.
