The Red Sox avoided arbitration with Brandon Workman on Friday, signing the right-hander to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal, the club announced.
Workman, 28, missed the 2016 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in June 2015. He saw limited action in a Minor League rehab assignment, making 10 appearances between the Gulf Coast League Red Sox, Class A Lowell and Double-A Portland.
