SP - BOS
Red Sox pitcher Tanner Houck will shift from the rotation to the bullpen, per manager Alex Cora. He’ll be available to pitch as early as Saturday.
Houck has looked solid this season, amassing a 3.75 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and .242 OBA through 14 games (12 starts). However, the rookie has managed to go 0-4 thus far.
Tanner Houck went 3.2 innings, allowed four hits, three earned runs, and only struck out one in Friday's loss to Chicago.
Houck just needs time. He has all the tools to make him a productive starter in this league. This is further evidenced by his 10.63 K/9. He still owns a rock solid 3.64 ERA and will likely be a big piece of this Red Sox rotation in 2022.
Tanner Houck went five innings, allowed three hits, zero earned runs, and struck out seven.
Houck has shown some real potential here in 2021. He has the ability to put up elite strikeout numbers. However, he is young and has yet to go very deep into games. So he is best viewed as a streamer and a dynasty stash. In other words, Houck is a long term play.
Tanner Houck went 5.1 innings, allowed one hit, three earned runs, and struck out three in Sunday’s no-decision.
Houck has a fairly big ceiling, there is no denying that. Where he gets himself into some trouble is the walk numbers. While he is a great streaming option in good matchups, he is better viewed as a long term option, as opposed to 2021.
Tanner Houck went four innings, allowed five hits, two earned runs, and struck out two in the first game on Tuesday's double header.
Houck truly could be something special, he is still young and has impressed early on in his career. Patience is the key with the young arm, and we suggest that fantasy managers keep a close eye on Houck.
