The Red Sox have several promising minor league pitchers (Matt Barnes, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa) who have been featured in The Eagle-Tribune this winter.
One pitcher who hasn’t received any ink is Brandon Workman who the organization named its minor league Pitcher of the Year for 2012.
Workman, 24, combined to go 10-8 with a 3.50 ERA and 130 strikeouts in 25 starts between High-A Salem and Double A-Portland.
“He’s going to attack you with his fastball, that’s his pitch,” minor league teammate Jackie Bradley Jr. recently said. “That’s his pitch. He likes to establish his fastball and he’s a workhorse. His name — Workman — he works. That’s how I really feel when he’s on the mound. It’s quick. He’s going to get out there and try to get it done as quick as he can and give his team an opportunity to put some runs on the board for him.”
