The Red Sox have promoted Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket,

The Red Sox have promoted right-handed pitching prospect Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket, leaving him--along with many other impressive starting prospects--just one step away from the majors.

Workman, 24, was drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft, and has been remarkably consistent in his run through Boston's farm system, with is ERA never exceeding 4.00 at any given stop along the way. This season in Double-A Portland has been no different. After a fantastic eight-inning effort on the first of June, Workman has now thrown 65 innings, allowing just 25 runs in the process, good for an ERA of 3.43 with a 74:17 K:BB to boot.

While Workman doesn't have the highest ceiling of Boston's prospects, coming in behind the likes of Barnes, Webster, De La Rosa, and Ranaudo, he provides the solid depth that will fill out the 25-man roster in time, be it as a strong relief option or a dependable back-of-the-rotation arm. He's not going to be seeing Boston this year given 40-man implications and the presence of other options ahead of him, but his time is not far off.
