Red Sox injuries: Trevor Story to begin rehab assignment Wednesday; Tanner Houck back to throwing

Closer Tanner Houck, who has been shut down for most of the month with lower back inflammation, is playing catch again and has a chance to return this season. If the Red Sox make a playoff push in the last few weeks, it appears Story and Houck will be part of it. Story will play in a game Wednesday for the first time since July 12, when he suffered a hand contusion and stress fracture in his wrist when he was hit by a pitch against the Rays.
