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.
