Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Rick Porcello, Ryan Brasier

In today’s links, we check in with pitchers Chris Sale, Rick Porcello and Ryan Brasier.

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Boston Red Sox Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Sale might have made some physiological changes but he should still be the same ace-level pitcher. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Rick Porcello knows that winning back-to-back World Series titles is no walk in the park. (Nick Goss; NBC Sports Boston)

Ryan Brasier came out of nowhere to dominate last season. Now he’s a potential answer at closer. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Brasier’s possible closer role is built on the fact that the Red Sox have not addressed the bullpen in free agency. Perhaps that’s not as bad a move as we think. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

No matter what decisions are made about the bullpen, closing games is still the goal. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Last year was great, but Alex Cora is ready for this year. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

Some potential rule changes are better than others. (Michael Baumann; The Ringer)
