Red Sox announced Thursday that Tanner Houck has been optioned to the WooSox. The reason for this move is because the Red Sox need to reduce their roster from 27 to 26.
Houck’s performance with the Red Sox hasn’t been that of an elite player but that of an okay starter.
The Red Sox have made it clear that Houck being optioned to the WooSox is not for performance issues but just for roster management.
Time with the WooSox will be short lived for Houck who should be back with Boston by August 7.
