Former Bowie High School and Boston Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman returned to the starting rotation on Friday evening against the New York Yankees.
Red Sox manager John Farrell made the announcement while the team was in Seattle on Tuesday.
Farrell indicated he would like to keep him in the rotation going forward.
“He hasn’t done anything to warrant not getting the ball in the rotation,” Farrell said in a story written by Jason Mastronardo for the Springfield (Mass.) Republican. “We’re just trying to be consistent and yet look at guys that have earned their ability to stay in the rotation by their performance. So we’re in a period of time here where we’re trying to work through a number of things.”
During five starts, Workman has a 3.21 earned-run average.
