Red Sox trade Blake Swihart to Diamondbacks for Marcus Wilson

Red Sox trade Blake Swihart to Diamondbacks for Marcus Wilson

The catcher goes to a new organization with some familar faces Earlier in the week, the Red Sox made the shocking move of designating Blake Swihart for assignment. The move got Sandy León back up in the majors, and was almost certainly marking the end of Swihart era. Many people read that as blaming the catcher for Boston’s struggles thus far, which was an overly dramatic reading of the decision, but it certainly came out of nowhere and could have been too early to move on from the catcher. The good news, or at least better-ish news, is that they didn’t lose him for nothing. The Red...

OTM Open Thread 4/20: It is Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone. The Red Sox actually got a win on Friday, and now they’ll look for another on Saturday to give them their first series victory of 2019. That would be pretty neat!

Daily Red Sox Links: Michael Chavis, Dustin Pedroia, Mookie Betts

Daily Red Sox Links: Michael Chavis, Dustin Pedroia, Mookie Betts

Michael Chavis is up with the Red Sox, but we’re yet to see him in action. Here’s what to expect once we do. (Jim Callis; RedSox.com) While he is up in Boston, don’t expect much if any of his playing time to come at second base, as he’s still a work in progress there. (Chris Cotillo; Masslive) You can also expect that Chavis will not be up in Boston too long, as he’s seen as more of a short-term option.
