Eduardo Rodriguez is back to pitching, and he’s had stretches where he’s looked like his old self this year too, but his battle with COVID-19 and its after-effects was a difficult ordeal, to say the least. (James Wagner: The New York Times)

After having so much success here in the early part of his career, Jonathan Papelbon put Boston behind him and never really looked back. (Tim Kelly; WEEI/Audacy)

Garrett Whitlock has really been a major surprise for the Red Sox this season, so Jen McCaffrey took a look at how he got here. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic)

While Whitlock has gotten most of the shine, don’t forget about Kaleb Ort, the other Rule 5 pick from the Yankees. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

The Red Sox have benefited from a busy starting rotation. (Peter Gammons; The Athletic)

Having a good draft pick is cool, but not if you always have one. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)
