The highlight of the big sweep this weekend at Fenway was, of course, Saturday’s start by Chris Sale. Greg Bedard takes a look back at that outing, and not only what it meant for that win but also what it could mean beyond that. (Greg Bedard; Boston Sports Journal)

It’s not just that Sale is back in the rotation, either. Tanner Houck is joining on a full-time basis, and guys like Eduardo Rodriguez are starting to hit their stride. All in all, the outlook for this group is looking up. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

Things were looking bleak for so long. Is a sweep of the Orioles enough to start feeling good about this Red Sox team again? (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

For most of this season, Bobby Dalbec has been one of the glaring holes in this lineup. More recently, however, the first baseman has been heating up in a big way. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Travis Shaw is back with the Red Sox after the team claimed him off waivers on Sunday. Alex Cora explains why that makes him feel so old. (Alexandra Francisco; NESN)

Christian Vázquez rejoined the team this weekend after a brief stay on the bereavement list. But whether Vázquez is active or not, Kevin Plawecki is going to get his playing time. (Steve Hewitt; Boston Herald)

Christopher Smith has some injury updates, including one for Christian Arroyo. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)
