Brandon Carlin Workman (born August 13, 1988) is an American professional baseball pitcher with the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball.

Workman attended the University of Texas, where he played college baseball for the Texas Longhorns.[1] The Red Sox drafted Workman in the second round, with the 57th pick of the 2010 draft, and signed him for a signing bonus of $800,000.[2]

In 2012, Workman posted a 5-1 record for the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs. He was named the Red Sox's 2012 Minor League Pitcher of the Year, after leading the Carolina League in fewest baserunners per nine innings while ranking second in WHIP and fourth in ERA. He was promoted to the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox in 2013. He was promoted to Boston in July after a season-ending foot injury to Andrew Miller. In his major league debut against the Seattle Mariners, Workman pitched two innings, gave up three runs, and struck out four.

Workman would go on to be a core member of the Red Sox bullpen for the remainder of the 2013 season, posting a 6-3 record over 20 regular season appearances and not allowing an earned run over 7 postseason appearances. He pitched a perfect 8th inning in the decisive Game 6 of the 2013 World Series, setting up Boston closer Koji Uehara. Workman also recorded his first professional at-bat in Game 3 of the World Series, striking out on 3 consecutive pitches.

On June 3, 2014, Workman was fined and suspended for six games after throwing a high pitch behind Evan Longoria. This incident followed after Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price had thrown at two Boston Red Sox batters in a May 30 game.[3] After losing an appeal, Workman began serving his suspension on June 18.[4]
