Red Sox Roster Transactions | Inside The Diamonds

The Boston Red Sox are in the third game of their four-game series against the Cleveland Guardians. They currently lead 2-0 after dropping the first two games of the series. They lost Monday 6-0 then on Tuesday 10-7 in 11 innings. Tonight Tanner Houck rebounded well from his last outing as he shut down the Guardians lineup throwing a complete game shutout and giving up three hits; he didn’t allow a walk and struck out nine. Last night Garrett Whitlock left his start after four innings. He gave up two runs in three hits; he walked one and struck out one. Today he was placed on the ten day injured list as it was deemed he has an injury to his oblique. They called up Joe Jacques to replace Whitlock. It remains who will make the start in place of Whitlock in the third game of their upcoming series against the Pirates.

RHP – Garrett Whitlock
