Breaking: Red Sox DFA Blake Swihart

In a shocking turn of events the Boston Red Sox have designated the former top prospect for assignment.

All was quiet in Red Sox camp until the Red Sox decided to designate catcher, Blake Swihart, for assignment.



The move would almost guarantee the addition of Sandy Leon from Pawtucket. As stated in previous articles, the Sox pitching staff has greatly struggled and it’s clear that both Alex Cora and Dave Dombrowski have determined that the root of the issue was game management.

It’s a surprising move in the sense that the Red Sox weren’t able to use his trade value to acquire any sort of asset. Last season there were rumors of Swihart being unhappy with playing time, but it’s looked like the future of the once-promising prospect will be determined elsewhere.

The young catcher has all of the potential in the world, but it looks like he’ll join the ranks of Henry Owens (and others) of the top Red Sox prospect that never was.

Best of luck, Blake.
