Minor league free agent in November, signed with BOS last week, listed on the transactions at the bottom here.
Very small sample size, unfortunately. Last year in AA in 324 AB’s he had an ops under .700
For Houck and your question, here is Soxprospects summary of him:Houck reminds me of Jered Weaver
Does he have a shot to be starter 5?
No sooner do I post this do we find Walden plunking his second batter of the game to load the bases and bring the go ahead run to the plate.Not much not to like in this game. Also love the idea of a healthy Lucroy being part of this team. It was mentioned that he not only looked forward to being reunited with Roenicke, but was looking forward to working with Tek. Veteran presence splitting time behind the plate, with potential power, an established relationship with the skipper, looking to pick Varitek's brain, who gives you another option at 1st and is not named Plawecki? Yes please
FWIW...I was listening to part of the 8th on the radio, and they were talking about how Walden's been working on some sort of running 2-seamer that he only threw once last year. From what I saw in the 9th, it was running just a bit too much.No sooner do I post this do we find Walden plunking his second batter of the game to load the bases and bring the go ahead run to the plate.
