The Red Sox season hasn’t gone as planned, but that doesn’t mean it’s all doom and gloom.
Brandon Workman has been a bright spot for Boston, as he’s developed into one of baseball’s best bullpen arms in 2019. In fact, the closer has been historically good for the Red Sox.
Opponent’s have a slugging percentage of .170 against Workman this season, which is the lowest league-wide over the last 50 years for pitchers with a minimum of 50 innings pitched. Ex-Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel was closest to Workman’s numbers in 2012 with an opponent slugging percentage of .1721.
