Tanner Houck’s splitter is looking more and more like it could graduate from being a nominal third pitch to be an actually effective offering. (David Laurila; FanGraphs)

Of course, the real main event will always be Houck’s slide piece and Rob Bradford has some of the details about how how the pitch became the sensation it is today. (Rob Bradford; WEEI/Audacy)

There’s no denying that Bobby Dalbec has been absolutely raking down the stretch, but he’s doing more than just putting the barrel on the ball more often. (Devan Fink; FanGraphs)

José Iglesias is playing a meaningful role for the Red Sox nearly a decade after he came up with the team, showed promise and got traded to Detroit. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

Even though doubt crept in a bit over the summer, Chaim Bloom has stuck to his guns and its continuing to pay off. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

They haven’t gotten there yet, but the Red Sox would likely make for one half of a solid Wild Card game. (Mike Axisa; CBS Sports)
