After taking a risk on Anthony Ranaudo, the Red Sox settled down by drafting more of a sure thing in Brandon Workman. As Over the Monster notes, though, the Sox aren’t settling for less:
This is a very solid pick for the Red Sox, considering some mock drafts had Workman going in the first round. Workman was drafted in the third round by the Phillies in 2007, so he’s received a small boost three years later. Workman will probably start out in the minors as a starter, but odds are he could become a reliever. He has split time pretty evenly between starting games and relieving in his career as a Longhorn.
