    Tanner Houck could be delivering on the promise that Red Sox scouts saw in him

    In 2017, after scouting Houck at the University of Missouri and during his time with Team USA, Red Sox area scout Todd Gold stepped back and distilled his years of familiarity with the loose-limbed righthander into just a few words. “The last line of my report was, 'Quick to the major leagues, slow to reach his ceiling,' ” Gold recalled. Gold had concluded that Houck could be an “impact major league starter” based on how he'd held his own as a Friday night starter against top college talent in the Southeastern Conference.
