The Red Sox were off on Thursday, but that doesn’t mean there was no important baseball being played for the organization. Tanner Houck made his return to the mound in Worcester on Thursday, and he looked great. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Chris Sale was among those watching, and he is obviously dealing with a return from injury of his own. It’s a tough balance for him to pull off between wanting to get back as quickly as possible, but also trying to be as cautious as he needs to be. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

There is some disagreement in the Red Sox clubhouse regarding the league’s crackdown on sticky substances. (Hayden Bird; Boston.com)

Garrett Richards is not a big fan of the crackdown, and Jason Mastrodonato thinks he brings up some good points in his argument. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

In the second part of her mailbag, Jen McCaffrey looks at a number of topics, and unsurprisingly a few involve Jarren Duran. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic)

It is also not surprising that a look at future leadoff hitters for every organization includes Duran. (Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Sam Dykstra; MLB.com)
