Boston Red Sox manager taps Brandon Workman for closer role

Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports that Ron Roenicke plans to send Brandon Workman in to close out ballgames for the Red Sox in 2020.

Roenicke, who served as bench coach in 2018-2019 before Alex Cora and the team parted ways last month, is leaving the door open for other players to be used in the same role. This isn’t surprising as the Red Sox took a closer by committee approach for a significant portion of last year, before Workman took over the job after the All-Star break and pitched well down the stretch.
