Phillies make it official: The Phillies have acquired RHPs Brandon Workman and Heath Hembree and cash considerations from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for RHPs Nick Pivetta and Connor Seabold, the club announced tonight.— Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyNBCS) August 22, 2020
Matt Klentak and the Phillies finally make solid moves to bolster the bullpen. The acquisition of Workman and Hembree adds much needed consistency to your bullpen. Workman had a 1.88 ERA across 71.2 innings for Boston last year and Hembree: 3.86 ERA across 39.2 innings. Workman has closer experience if Girardi wants to knock Neris down to the set-up spot.
Once D rob and Ranger Suarez come back that gives you a decent bullpen you can work it. Til then, lets hope these two guys can hold the fort
