      Red Sox's Brandon Workman: Aiming for second half return

      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.

      Brandon Workman still 2-3 weeks away from throwing for Red Sox

      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."

      Red Sox's Brandon Workman to get second opinion on elbow

      Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman will get a second opinion on his strained elbow from Dr. James Andrews, reports. "He attempted to throw a bullpen [session] after he was optioned and there was discomfort there," manager John Farrell said, per "I think anytime someone gets a second opinion with Dr. Andrews there's concern. To what extent there is damage or injury remains to be seen, and what the follow up treatment will be as a result remains to be seen also." Workman is not currently expected to need surgery on the elbow, but he'll get more information before making a decision. He was initially optioned to Triple-A before the season but had the move reversed to be placed on the disabled list.

      Red Sox looking at Brandon Workman as a reliever

      The Red Sox are looking at pitcher Brandon Workman as a reliever this spring, according to the Boston Herald. Manager John Farrell seemed to think Workman would be more than adequate in the role. "His mentality is one that embraces those higher leverage type of innings," Farrell said. "In one-inning stints, his stuff plays up a little bit more with power, a little bit more swing-and-miss ability with his fastball." Workman seems open to the change. "If John tells me that's where I'm going to fit in, that's where I'll fit in," he said. The 26-year-old Workman posted a 5.17 ERA over 87 innings last year.
