  • 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.

  • Garrett Whitlock Expected To Be A Starter

    The Boston Red Sox told right-hander Garrett Whitlock that he will almost certainly be used as a starting pitcher in 2023, according to general manager Brian O'Halloran. The team also plans to have Tanner Houck build up as a starter, but there's still a chance he's used out of the bullpen. Whitlock had arthroscopic right hip surgery in September, but he's expected to be ready for spring training next year. The 26-year-old was solid in both starting and relieving roles for the BoSox in 2022, going 4-2 with a 3.45 ERA (3.29 WHIP), a 1.02 WHIP, an 82:15 K:BB and six saves in 78 1/3 innings over 31 appearances (nine starts). Whitlock will certainly be an intriguing fantasy up-and-comer in a starting role in just his third MLB season.
