BOSTON - Right-hander Brandon Workman and the Boston Red Sox have reached agreement on a one-year contract for $635,000.
The AL East champions announced the deal Friday and avoided salary arbitration.
The 28-year-old Workman spent last season on the disabled list after having Tommy John surgery in June 2015. He went 0-2 with a 7.65 ERA in 10 rehabilitation appearances at three minor league levels.
Workman made $539,500 this year.
Workman is 7-13 with a 5.11 ERA in 39 games, including 18 starts, in the big leagues. He has not pitched in the majors since 2014.
Facing a 1 p.m. Friday deadline to avoid arbitration, the Red Sox reportedly agreed to a one-year, $3.6 million deal with center field Jackie Bradley Jr., and also avoided hearings with six other players.
Shortstop Xander Bogaerts, utilityman Brock Holt, pitchers Joe Kelly, Robbie Ross Jr., Tyler Thornburgh and catcher Sandy Leon also agreed to one-year deals.
Terms of the deals were not announced.
