Brandon Workman has done a solid job for the Red Sox, posting a 4.13 ERA in 52 innings split between the rotation and bullpen, but the 25-year-old right-hander has been optioned back to Triple-A following last night’s loss to the White Sox.
The move made room for the arrival of Rubby De La Rosa, who was called up from Triple-A to start tonight’s game.
Workman took the demotion in stride and manager John Farrell actually praised his performance last night, so it’s possible the Red Sox are simply using his demotion to lessen a roster logjam and plan to recall him from the minors shortly after the All-Star break.
