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 strikes out two in spring training action

Brandon Workman struck out two batters in a 1-2-3 inning Sunday in Grapefruit League play as the Red Sox defeated the Braves by a 4-2 score.

Fantasy Impact

Workman has been named the closer by Red Sox interim manager Ron Roenicke to open the season. The 24-year-old right-hander posted a 2.01 ERA with 13 saves (two blown) during the second half of last season. Workman should be drafted in all fantasy leagues that have the save category.
