Game 59: Rays at Red Sox

Still anyone’s series

Tanner Houck lasted just four innings last time out agains theArizona Diambondbacks. He’ll be looking forward to a Wander Franco-less lineup as the Rays’ young star is out today due to being a little banged up. On the season Houck is looking at a 5.30 ERA vs a 4.14 FIP so there’s a bit happening beyond his control on the mound. If he can drift towards his FIP and the bats continue to perform well he’s a nice starter to have. With any luck he can settle in to a place in the Red Sox rotation for a few years. We’re not there yet but it’s close.

Taj Bradley looked like he would be on the outside looking in for the Rays this year but a few injuries to the rotation later and he’s a mainstay. They just keep finding these guys.

Kenley Jansen is presumably unavailable after pitching in both games of the doubleheader and related to a tired bullpen, a few pitching moves:

Jolly Rodriguez (IL) and Ryan Sherriff (AAA) are out.

Kaleb Ort and Brennan Bernardino are up.
