Rookie RHP Kevin Gausman is a candidate to pitch in the instructional league or even get a few outings at the Arizona Fall League, Showalter said. No final decision has been made yet. … Showalter said he's still leaning toward starting right-hander Chris Tillman in Sunday's season finale, regardless of the importance of the game for Boston. In 10 career starts against the Red Sox, Tillman is 4-2 with a 2.35 ERA and six quality starts. In five home starts against Boston, he is 3-1 with a 2.33 ERA and three quality starts.
