We continue the list today with number 19 in our countdown with junior RHP Brandon Workman from Texas. He is a 6-5 220 pound right handed power pitcher from Bowie High School in Bowie Texas.
Workman went 5-2 with a 5.06 ERA in 21 appearances including six starts in his freshman season in 2008. He was able to pitch 53.1 innings while allowing 58 hits on the year. He struggled with his control while allowing 20 walks but did strikeout 49 batters. The opponents batting average against him was a respectable .279.
After his 2008 season with the Longhorns, he came to the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League where he pitched for the Wareham Gatemen. He made nine starts on the year accumulating a 3-3 record with a 3.44 ERA. His struggles with his control settled down this summer as he only walked 14 batters in 55 innings. We saw Workman in the 2008 CCBL All-Star game where he pitched one inning for the Western Division striking out two out of the three batters he faced. He featured a mid-90’s fastball on that day which really overpowered the hitters. Workman was ranked as the fifth best prospect in the CCBL by Baseball America after his strong summer.
Workman made 20 appearances including 13 starts accumulating a 3-5 record with a 3.48 ERA in 75 innings of work while striking out 82 batters. He was a little wild as he allowed 28 walks while tossing six wild pitches and hitting seven batters. He held opponents to a .210 batting average. He pitched in five games this summer with the Wareham Gatemen where he went 1-1 with a 5.06 ERA in five games including three starts. Baseball America named him the 7th best prospect in the CCBL after last season.
