It’s still early, but the Red Sox have to figure out what to do about Garrett Richards. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic)

Staying the course is one option and Chris Cotillo reports that is the current plan. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive)

In his current role, Garrett Whitlock looks locked in and that is yielding a lot of early season success. (Rob Bradford; WEEI/Audacy)

If you’re like me, you can’t get enough of Tanner Houck’s slider, so here’s some more about one of the best pitches on the Red Sox’s staff. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Chris Sale knows a thing or two about throwing sliders. Will he be throwing them for the Red Sox this season? (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

The Red Sox could also go out and trade for some reinforcements instead of just waiting for Sale. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

How close did Alex Cora come to having to pitch during his playing days? Closer than you might think. (Khari Thompson; Boston Globe)
