Red Sox set to call up five players

Red Sox set to call up five players

The first wave of September call-ups is upon us. It’s September 1, which means rosters have expanded around the league and every team is about to see an influx of players. The Red Sox are no exception, though it’s important to keep in mind that these things tend to happen in a couple waves rather than all at once. On Saturday, the Red Sox will be adding eight players to their roster. They’ll call up five minor leaguers while also welcoming back three injured players. For injured players coming back to the active roster, the Red Sox plan to activate Eduardo Rodriguez, Christian Vazquez...

A Look at the Red Sox’ Catching Situation

A Look at the Red Sox’ Catching Situation

They have fared well in Christian Vazquez’ absence. When Christian Vazquez went down with a broken finger, it seemed as if the Red Sox were going to have issues getting production out of the catcher position. Although Vazquez was not exactly setting the world on fire, losing him meant either Sandy Leon would have to catch full-time — something that he neither profiled well for nor had much experience with — or Blake Swihart would get reps behind the plate — something that he hadn’t come close to proving he could hande. Leon had mostly been utilized as a platoon player, and has...
