Bowie's Workman Gets "The Call"

Bowie Jackrabbit alum Brandon Workman was called up to the Boston Red Sox Tuesday after a dominant season in AA and AAA.

Workman was a combined 8-2 with a 3.21 ERA over 16 starts in 2013 for AA Portland (Maine) and AAA Pawtucket (RI) in the Red Sox farm system. He is expected to be used as a reliever for Boston.

He was a 3rd round selection in 2010 out of the University of Texas.

Before that, Workman played four years for coach Kelly Shackelford in Bowie, going 27-7 as a pitcher for the Jackrabbits.

As a senior at Bowie, he was 10-2 with a 0.81 ERA, striking out 171 and walking just 12 in 76 innings. He was named District MVP, first-team TSWA All-State, Rawlings All-Region and a first-team Louisville Slugger All American.

Earlier in 2013, Rider's Ryan Brasier threw two innings for the LA Angels, allowing two runs.

Boston played late Tuesday night in Seattle.
