Workman relishing rotation role after making mark in Boston as reliever

April 18, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Rarely do you hear “versatility” and “pitcher” mentioned in the same breath.

According to PawSox manager Kevin Boles, the adjective perfectly sums up a promising Red Sox pitcher who last year earned high marks due to his ability to gracefully swing back and forth between the starting rotation and the bullpen.

For the time being, Brandon Workman is no longer viewed as an interchangeable swingman. He now takes the ball once every five days for Pawtucket and quiet frankly, the 25-year-old is thrilled to be included in the rotation mix.

Triple play, sixth-inning rally help Mount top Novans

April 17, 2014

WOONSOCKET — On an afternoon when Mount St. Charles pulled off an astonishingly spectacular triple play, head coach Cliff Matthews and Co. doubled its pleasure with a solid 5-2 victory over city rival Woonsocket at the upper campus field Thursday.
The feat came with the Mounties guarding a tenuous 1-0 advantage in the top of the fourth inning. It had opened with junior Taylor Pawlina’s ability to reach on a shortstop bobble, and classmate Amanda Nunez moved her to second with a hard single down the left-field line.

Injured Barnes anxious to return to PawSox's rotation

April 16, 2014

PAWTUCKET — The right shoulder tenderness that grounded Matt Barnes for the majority of spring training has subsided to the point where the Red Sox pitching prospect believes it’s only a matter of time before he departs Fort Myers.

When Barnes will be officially granted exile so that he can take the mound for the PawSox … let’s just say there’s a cloak and dagger element in play.

“I don’t know when I’m leaving, but all I know is that I feel real good right now,” said Barnes from Florida earlier this week. “I’ll let the people who are in charge make the important decisions.”
