    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, CSNNE.com reports. "He attempted to throw a bullpen [session] after he was optioned and there was discomfort there," manager John Farrell said, per MLB.com. "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.

    Red Sox's Workman preparing to compete for a spot in rotation

    With the offseason acquisitions of Rick Porcello, Wade Miley and Justin Masterson, Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman chances of making the opening-day rotation have significantly decreased. Workman knows his best chance of making the roster will be as a reliever, but he still expects to show up to spring training competing for a spot in the rotation, per ESPN. "I'm going in there looking forward to competing, hopefully winning a spot," Workman said. "I'd like to be in the rotation. I'm hoping I can win a job in the starting rotation but we'll see how that goes. I'm doing everything I can right now to prepare for it and get ready to put myself in a good spot to compete for that job." Workman struggled last season, going 1-10 with a 5.17 ERA in 19 appearances at the major-league level. Although, most of his struggles came as a starter. He went 1-9 with a 5.36 ERA in 15 starts, while going 0-1 with a 2.84 ERA in four relief appearances. "My stuff kind of fell off at the end of last year," Workman said. "I wasn't bringing the same stuff to the table that I was at the beginning of the year and that made it tougher on me. But even with that, I feel like if I would have executed better I still would have been able to get the job done."
