Workman (elbow) is recovering well from Tommy John surgery and is aiming to return to game action in the second half of the season, Tim Bitton of The Providence Journal reports. Workman underwent Tommy John surgery in June, so the earliest he could return in all likelihood would be sometime after the All Star break provided that he continues to recover without any setbacks. There is no word yet on when he'll resume throwing, but when healthy, he could provide bullpen depth for the Red Sox down the stretch.
Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Monday, reports The Boston Herald. Workman is on the 60-day disabled list and he will not pitch again this season.
The Red Sox transferred pitcher Brandon Workman to the 60-day disabled list on Wednesday. The move cleared a 40-man roster spot for Alejandro De Aza, who was acquired from the Orioles on Wednesday. Workman has yet to pitch this season while recovering from a strained elbow. He went 1-10 with a 5.17 ERA and 70:36 K:BB ratio in 87 innings in 2014.
Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman has begun playing catch and says he can feel a difference after receiving a PRP injection in his elbow last month, according to the Boston Globe. The right-hander has been on the disabled list with an elbow strain all season. The team has not provided an updated timetable for return or next steps in his recovery process.
Brandon Workman is still two-to-three weeks away from starting a throwing program, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Workman received a PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) injection earlier in the week, to help stimulate healing of his injured elbow ligament. "He's still probably two or three weeks away from initiating any type of throwing program," Farrell said, per WEEI. "So he'll remain here in Boston. There are some changes to the ligament. To what extent, or percentage of tear, I don't have that. But that is why he received the injection he did."
