Description: Red Sox starter Brandon Workman lost his appeal and will begin serving his six-game suspension immediately. SOURCE: Mike Silverman, Boston Herald
Insight: Workman (1-0, 2.88 ERA) was given the ban for throwing at Rays third baseman Evan Longoria. Felix Doubront (2-4, 5.12 ERA) will start in his place Friday against Oakland.

Description: Boston starter Brandon Workman will have his appeal heard on Friday. Workman was given a six-game suspension for throwing a pitch behind Evan Longoria two weeks ago. SOURCE: Scott Lauber, Boston Herald
Insight: It's unlikely the suspension will be wiped away completely so we'd still anticipate Workman (1-0, 2.86 ERA) missing at least one start. His next appearance is scheduled for Sunday against Cleveland.

Description: Red Sox right-hander Brandon Workman has been suspended six games by Major League Baseball for "intentionally throwing a pitch in the head area of Evan Longoria," last Friday. SOURCE: Providence Journal
Insight: Workman threw the pitch behind Longoria in the sixth inning and was ejected. Both benches were warned in the first inning when David Price plunked David Ortiz in the hip. Workman is appealing the suspension so will likely make his scheduled start on Wednesday.

Description: As expected, Brandon Workman will start in place of Felix Doubront (strained shoulder) Sunday against the Rays. SOURCE: Pete Abraham, Boston Globe
Insight: That became obvious when Workman was scratched from his start Friday with Triple-A Pawtucket. Workman went 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA in three starts for Boston last season.

Insight: It's a clear indication that Workman is heading to Tampa Bay where he's likely to start Sunday in place of Felix Doubront (strained shoulder). Workman made three relief appearances for the Sox earlier in the year. With Pawtucket, he's gone 3-1 with a 5.12 ERA in seven starts.

Description: Red Sox rookie Brandon Workman threw his third straight start of at least six innings Tuesday against the Mariners.
Insight: Workman struck out a career-high nine batters and allowed one run on six hits. The right-hander has a 2.45 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP in his first three major league starts.

Description: Red Sox rookie Brandon Workman is starting in place of Jon Lester tonight against the Rays.
Insight: It's Workman's second major league start. He turned in a dazzling effort in his debut last week versus Oakland (6 1/3 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 5 K's). Lester's start has been pushed back to Tuesday.
7/14/2013 8:21:00 PM
Description: In his first major league start, Red Sox rookie Brandon Workman didn't allow a hit until the seventh inning.
Insight: Coco Crisp finally broke up the no-no with an infield single to lead off the seventh. Josh Donaldson smacked a two-run homer later in the inning to force Workman out of the game. Regardless of the end result (the A's won 3-2 in extra innings), it was a very impressive debut for the 24-year-old. Look for him to stay in the rotation for another couple of turns while Clay Buchholz rehabs in the minor leagues.
