Tanner Houck is back in the rotation, but because of doubleheaders he is not staying permanently on the active roster. It seems easy to be frustated by it, but the rookie is taking it in stride. (Steve Hewitt; Boston Herald)

The Red Sox certainly need all the help they can get right now, and on any area of the roster that can get it. To that end, despite a rough rehab assignment so far Ryan Brasier is approaching a return to the bullpen. (Alexandra Francisco; NESN)

Travis Shaw is back with the team right now in his second stint with the Red Sox, as Steve Buckley explores. (Steve Buckely; The Athletic)

Shaw is here because the team still needed left-handed help at first base. Many saw Anthony Rizzo as a logical option to fill that hole, including the man himself. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Victor Santos is one of the newest prospects in the Red Sox system, and Christopher Smith provides an introduction. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)
