I'm baffled by this. Why give him such a short leash? What are they going to do at catcher now? What about his performance merited completely cutting bait on him? Seems like, if nothing else, he could at least be a helpful multi-position backup.Sources: The Red Sox have DFA'd catcher Blake Swihart. He’s effectively gone, presuming he won’t pass waivers. Stunning move early in the season for a struggling team.
The Sox (across multiple administrations) have jerked him around his whole career -- I'm curious to see if he can go to another org, get regular playing time, and turn into something.
