    Is turning into a very good middle-of-rotation starter.
    Success as starter could keep him in the rotation, but is a possible candidate to close at some point in his career.
With a couple arms like this, the Red Sox are winners (just not in the current standings). Workman and De La Rosa have a combined record of just 3-2, but most of that is because of the lack of offensive support. Both have been stellar filling in for Buchholz and Doubront and have earned a spot in the rotation, so manager John Farrell will have some tough decisions to make in the near future.
