    Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Tanner Houck, Nathan Eovaldi

    The Red Sox were supposed to have Chris Sale back in the rotation as their ace in the hole for the second half and into this postseason. Instead, his status in coming back from Tommy John is leaving them in a conundrum.

    Tanner Houck earned permanent spot on Red Sox roster after legendary ALDS performance

    Tanner Houck saved the Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALDS and proved he deserves a permanent spot on the roster Let’s get one thing straight: Tanner Houck had already earned his place with the Boston Red Sox before Friday night.

    Pedro Martinez praises Tanner Houck for Game 2 performance out of the bullpen

    Tanner Houck’s Game 2 performance in the ALDS matched a pair of other playoff outings in Red Sox lore. The rookie right-hander pitched five innings out of the bullpen, allowing just one run to cool off the Rays’ bats after Chris Sale gave up five runs in the first inning. In his outing, Houck gave up just two hits and didn’t walk a batter, striking out five to earn the win in the Red Sox’ 14-6 drubbing of the Rays.
