BOSTON -- The Red Sox activated reliever Craig Breslow from the disabled list on Wednesday and optioned Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Workman was called into manager John Farrell's office, where he also met with general manager Ben Cherington, after Tuesday's 10-7 loss to the Rangers.

"Obviously it's not ideal, but I understand what they're doing. It's part of it," Workman said afterward. "I have to keep working. There's really not much else to do."

Workman will be stretched out to start with the PawSox.

The right-hander pitched multiple innings in Tuesday's game, going four innings and allowing just one run on one hit. He also struck out three.

"I threw the ball well and have up to this point," Workman said. "They want me to be stretched out. That's the plan and that's what we're doing."

In three games with the club this season, he combined to toss 61/3 innings, allowing one run on four hits.

"Breslow is coming back," Workman said. "Breslow obviously deserves a spot here. That's the way it goes."
