The Boston Red Sox have already begun the process of rebuilding their organization after firing Team President and General Manager Chaim Bloom last week. The search is now on for a replacement for Bloom, who helped rebuild the team's farm system but saw the team make the playoffs just once in his four years. Manager Alex Cora will likely have an uncertain future as well as he tries to navigate the Red Sox out of last place with two weeks to go. The Red Sox have fallen behind the Yankees and slipped under .500 thanks to a 2-8 stretch heading into the series opener with the Rangers. On Monday night, the Red Sox scratched across two runs in the eighth inning to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 win.
The Red Sox will send Tanner Houck to the hill in game two of the series. Houck recently returned to the rotation after missing several starts recovering from a comebacker that hit him in the face. Houck is 5-9 on the season in 18 starts including four quality starts. He has allowed 90 hits in 93 innings pitched with an ERA of 4.94. He has a K/9 rate of 8.4 and his WHIP is 1.33. Houck is 2-5 on the road in eight starts with an ERA of 4.75. In his last five starts, Houck is 2-3 with a 4.62 ERA while giving up 28 hits in 25.1 innings pitched.
Key Injuries: 1B Triston Casas is out.
