Red Sox Opening Day Roster Set; Breslow begins season on DL

The Red Sox announced their final roster today, with the only unexpected member on the roster being Brandon Workman, who was originally slated to be in the AAA rotation. Due to an injury to Craig Breslow that will start him on the 15 Day DL, Workman will be throwing out of the bullpen.

Drake Britton, Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster, and Jackie Bradley Jr. were all optioned to AAA Pawtucket. With the possibility of Shane Victorino hitting the DL, more changes could be coming. If Victorino is shelved for the first two weeks of the season, expect Bradley Jr. to be called up.
