  • Garrett Whitlock, Tanner Houck On Track

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that right-handers Garrett Whitlock (hip) and Tanner Houck (back) have been throwing this offseason and are on track for the start of the 2023 season. Whitlock is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right hip, while Houck had a lumbar discectomy. If healthy, Whitlock should begin the year in the starting rotation after he had a 3.45 ERA (3.29 FIP), 1.02 WHIP, six saves and 26.4% strikeout rate in 78 1/3 innings over 31 outings (nine starts) for Boston in his second MLB season. Houck was used mostly in relief (four starts in 32 appearances) and had a career-high eight saves, but Boston is expected to stretch him out for a potential starting role this spring. However, he's also a trade candidate, so he could find himself pitching somewhere other than Boston in 2023.
